Specialized Specialized Roubaix Expert 2017

Online exclusive
{{ vm.state.webThumbOverlay.code }}


The brand new Specialized Roubaix has been redesigned from the ground up. What has been created is the lightest road frame Specialized have ever made without sacrificing any performance to compliance, comfort or handling.

The Roubaix uses an innovative Future Shock providing 20mm of suspension situated above the head tube to allow the bike to move vertically up towards the hands. As the Future Shock is positioned above the stem the bikes wheels are held rigidly by the frame, because of the cleaver positioning the wheel base of the frame doesn’t change like a traditional suspension unit when it is travelling in a vertical direction. This allows for excellent predictable handling.

Roubaix Expert uses FACT 10r carbon to create the frame with Rider first engineered an endurance geometry, this allows each frame size equal performance by tailoring the carbon layup and tube size.

Roubaix Disc fork is built from FACT 11r carbon fibre for supreme stiffness, strength, and reactivity, while a thru-axle design only stands to bolster all of the above.
