About the BikeWith six wins at Paris-Roubaix, the Roubaix has proven that Smoother is Faster. Until thismoment, however, smooth has admittedly come with some compromises. But not anymore.The all-new Roubaix Expert now delivers compliance without compromise by introducing aradical new Future Shock 2.0 that gives you more control and damping options, a new Pavéseatpost that creates our most balanced Roubaix to date, aerodynamics that equal theTarmac, and a Rider-First Engineered frame that’s shed some serious weight. Is it stillcomfortable? Sure, but don’t call it a comfort bike, because performance was behind everyengineering decision Specialized made. This is the new Roubaix. The new frame delivers compliance without compromise via the perfect balance ofaerodynamics, light overall weight, compliance, and Rider-First Engineering. With tubeshapes that were born in our FreeFoil Shape Library and validated in the Win Tunnel, thenew Roubaix’s as aero as the Tarmac SL6. Meanwhile, to ensure the weight and ridequality, Specialized turned to a Rider-First Engineered design to deliver optimal stiffness andcompliance across all sizes, from 44 to 64cm. Of course, the frame has shed someserious weight in the process. To prep you for your own Hell of the North, Specialied have maderoom for 33mm tires.The Ultegra Di2 groupset featured on this model is as ideally suited to long days in the saddle as it is racing.
