Description

With seven wins at Paris-Roubaix our Roubaix has proven that Smoother is Faster. Until this moment however smooth has admittedly come with some compromises. But not anymore. The all-new Roubaix Expert now delivers compliance without compromise by introducing a radical new Future Shock 1.5 that gives you more control on rough roads a new Pavé seatpost that creates our most balanced Roubaix to date aerodynamics that equal the Tarmac and a Rider-First Engineered™ frame that’s shed some serious weight. Is it still comfortable? Sure but don’t call it a comfort bike because performance was behind every engineering decision we made. This is the new Roubaix. This Roubaix Sport provides a tremendous value but like the frame itself this value doesn’t come with any compromises. We spec’d it with Shimano’s 105 11-speed groupset for its crisp shifts and powerful hydraulic disc brakes as well as smooth and sturdy DT R470 Disc wheels the all-new S-Works Pavé seatpost 28mm Turbo Pro tires and our fan-favorite Power Sport saddle. The new frame delivers compliance without compromise via the perfect balance of aerodynamics light overall weight via a FACT 10r carbon construction compliance and Rider-First Engineering. With tube shapes that were born in our FreeFoil Shape Library and validated in the Win Tunnel the new Roubaix is more aero than the Tarmac SL6. Meanwhile to ensure the weight and ride quality we turned to a Rider-First Engineered™ design to deliver optimal stiffness and compliance across all sizes from 44 to 64cm. Of course the frame has shed some serious weight in the process. And to prep you for your own Hell of the North we’ve made room for 33mm tires. To go along with the new frame we’ve also developed a totally-new S-Works Pavé seatpost. Not only is it the first compliant seatpost that’s aerodynamic it does so without any additional weight or contraptions. Starting with the same d-shape design found in the Tarmac we took its compliance a step further building additional flex into the upper and developing a new drop-clamp design in the frame. In the end it provides plenty of compliance while staying perfectly balanced with the front end delivering a sublime smooth ride no matter how rough the road. With 20mm of rough-road-taming travel the Future Shock 1.5 not only delivers a smoother more comfortable ride but it also reduces fatigue and increases speed over harsh terrain. The new Smooth Boot meanwhile enhances the aesthetics to bring a clean transition from the head tube to the stem Occasionally without notice manufacturers change product design and/or specifications.
