Specialized Roubaix Expert 2017 Carbon Disc Road Bike Blue Information

Season : 2017

Brand : Specialized

Code : 94417-30

Smoother is faster. Nothing is smoother than the new Roubaix Expert 2017 by Specialized, which must make it the fastest bike available, thanks to a premium FACT 10r Carbon frame combined with Future Shock technology.

Frame

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 and compared to the SL4 frameset from last year, 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 biggest change to the new Roubaix frame is Future Shock. 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.

Clever SWAT Storage box located at the bottom of the downtube provides a place to stash your essential gear and is aerodynamically shaped to reduce drag making it a drastic improvement to on the bike storage needed for long days in the saddle.

Components

The Roubaix Expert is crammed full of desirable components, from its Ultegra 11 speed groupset that provides flawless shifting performance with a wide range of useable gears, to the integrated hydraulic disc brakes that provide confident control in all conditions.

DT R460 Disc Pro 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.

Key Features

  • Revolutionary Future Shock Technology Boosts Comfort and Smoothness With 20mm of Travel
  • Shimano Ultegra Provides Slick Shifting With a low Weight
  • Shimano Ultegra Hydraulic Disc Brakes Offer Confidence Boosting Control in all Conditions
