Coming fully equipped with the Future Shock, a CeramicSpeed bottom bracket, CG-R seatpost, and a full SWAT™ box, the S-Works Roubaix frameset is the perfect start to your cobble-crushing dream build.
The frame is one of the lightest that Specialized has ever made, and it's been constructed from top-tier FACT 11r carbon fibre. Its stiffness levels are also off the charts, and compared to the SL4 iteration of yesteryear, you'll experience a whole new, faster, and more efficient geometry. Specialized managed to keep the same fit, feel, and position that they've all come to love from the SL4, and kept it consistent throughout the size- range due to Rider-First Engineered™ construction.
Of course, you're probably thinking, "get on to the suspension thing up front." It's called the Future Shock, and essentially, it's a piston in the head tube with 20mm of travel. They developed this technology in partnership with McLaren Applied Technologies, and the result of this are a host of drastic performance improvements, namely in the vertical compliance department. Specialized found that focusing on vertical compliance, instead of fork splay, meant that they could improve smoothness, speed, and comfort in one fell swoop. And of all the bikes that they've tested with a Rolling Efficiency Model, the new Roubaix outperforms anything on the market.
Featuring Rider-First Engineered™ design that ensures every frame size has the same legendary responsiveness and smooth ride quality that you'd expect from a Roubaix. The S-Works FACT 11r frameset is the highest quality carbon frame, offering the ideal blend of light overall weight and targeted stiffness, while the all-new Future Shock "suspension" system at the cockpit delivers a revolutionary degree of comfort and control.
An S-Works Roubaix Disc fork is built from top-end FACT 11r carbon fibre for supreme stiffness, strength, and reactivity, while a thru-axle design only stands to bolster all of the above.
FACT carbon CG-R seatpost has integrated elastomer inserts that help dissipate road chatter and vibration, without sacrificing responsiveness or power transfer.
We offer a free 6 week check on all new bikes that we sell to guarantee that your bike is still running sweet. This check is basically the last step in a bike's quality control.
We go over the bike and make sure it's safe, gears are tuned up, bolts are torqued up and that there are no potential issues.
Specialized has one of the bike industry's most generous, rider-oriented warranty policies to offer. They have expanded their coverage across their range of bikes and gear.
Their frames and Roval wheels have a lifetime warranty and most warranties become transferrable to a subsequent owner, who will then be eligible for warranty 2 years
from the original retail purchase date.
