Blistering world class performance
All day comfort, a smoother ride and improved geometry. The Specialized Roubaix has been specifically designed with a longer wheelbase and higher front end, resulting in a more upright, more comfortable riding position without sacrificing performance. Perfect for long days in the saddle or those lengthy sportive rides, the Roubaix really does eat up the miles.
That being said, the Roubaix has a very well established racing pedigree. The famous Paris Roubaix race, one of the harshest races in all of Europe, has seen the bike sitting on the top of the podium on numerous occasions over the years. The race, just shy of 160 miles, full of cobbled streets and rutted roads, calls for the silky smooth ride of the Roubaix, achieved from the lightweight FACT carbon frame which features class leading stiffness and compliancy.
The addition of zertz inserts, found on the seatstays and the fork, improve the comfort and eliminate the road buzz found on uneven road surfaces, which reduces muscle fatigue, allowing you to ride further, faster and harder than before.
The introduction of disc brakes in the Roubaix range provides the rider with excellent feedback and top quality braking performance.
Ultimately, the Roubaix aims at providing unrivaled comfort, whilst giving you blistering world class performance. Sportives, commuting or racing, the Roubaix can do it all, making it one of the most versatile bikes available today and it certainly stands up to Specialized’s tag line: ‘Smoother is faster’.
