Boasting the same frame as the 2019 model, Specialized's 2018 Roubaix is as smooth as ever with their innovative Future Shock Suspension system, taking all rough roads in it's stride.

The all new Roubaix frame is one of the lightest Specialized have ever made and is constructed from FACT 10r carbon fibres. Its stiffness levels are higher than before, you'll experience a faster, more efficient package. Through some engineering expertise, the Roubaix sports more racy geometry but manages to keep the same fit and feel position that you love from the previous SL4 Roubaix.

The Roubaix still maintain Future Shock Technology. Essentially a piston located in the headtube that provides 20mm of travel. Developed in partnership with Mclaren Applied Technologies, this technology is a drastic improvement in vertical compliance, improving smoothness, speed, and comfort - all in one fell swoop.

The Roubaix Expert features Shimano's integrated Hydraulic Disc Brakes, providing enhanced braking control and modulation to boost your confidence in all conditions. DT R470 Disc Wheels are built to be both tough and light to match the character of the Roubiax to withstand the abuse of riding broken roads and cobbles at the high speeds that the Roubaix Expert can achieve.

Sizing Information
Professional Opinion
 
The Roubaix revolutionised comfort for an endurance bike and is still leading the pack
 
You rarely feel the Future Shock working (and only a little when out of the saddle or traversing broken surfaces), but it’s not intrusive and doesn’t require any change to your riding style, it just does its thing without fuss.
 
The new Roubaix is a disc-only bike and uses thru-axles front and rear and has space for 32mm tyres. It’s also the lightest Roubaix frame ever
 
The suspension built into the steerer tube does a great job of improving comfort on really rough surfaces, and also helps to improve handling, as the tyre spends more time in contact with the tarmac around bumpy surfaces.
 
Out of the saddle, for sprints or climbs, the suspension does react, but it doesn’t have a noticeable effect and certainly no detectable ‘bobbing’ while riding.

I really enjoyed my time with the Roubaix Elite. It was comfortable, engaging and really allowed me to get on and enjoy riding without the normal distractions of road buzz and sore hands
