Product Description

For the toughest endurance road races, Specialized pulled out all the stops. The Roubaix Elite road bike, with carbon frame and Future Shock is made to take on the roughest roads while remaining smooth. Ideal for sportives and long distance adventures.

To deal with the greater challenges of the Paris-Roubaix, Specialized developed their aptly names Roubaix. With a FACT 10r carbon frame that’s lightweight and capable of taking on rough roads, and with the Endurance Geometry it’s made to go the distance.

The Rider-First Engineered™ technology that Specialized use to build their frames takes into account people of all sizes, making each size ride exactly the same, so everyone gets the same fantastic experience. The rear of the frame has a thru-axle and 12x142mm spacing, keeping it stiff and responsive. The FACT carbon fork is lightweight and stiff, especially with its 12x100mm spacing with thru-axle allowing extremely precise steering.

With the Future Shock, Specialized has taken comfort and control to the next level in road racing. Developed with the help of McLaren Applied Technologies, Future Shock is a suspension cartridge inside the headtube with 20mm travel working between the stem and frame. It effectively isolates much of the bumps from your hands, allowing the bike to maintain the same momentum. It’s particularly good for rough roads.

Pairing with the Future Shock, the seatpost features rearward arc compliance that affectively leaves room for the seatpost to flex slightly inside the frame to reduce vibrations and bumps filtering to the saddle. The CG-R FACT carbon seatpost also has a Zertz vibration damping elastomer with 18mm of vertical compliance.

To make climbing more accessible, a 11-32T cassette is used, paired with a 50/34t chainset. Shifting with accuracy is Shimano’s 105 2x11 speed drivetrain, getting you moving swiftly and reliably. The RS505 hydraulic disc brakes offer powerful braking in any weather condition, giving you full control of your speed during steep descents.

The DT Swiss R470 wheelset is lightweight and robust, taking on challenging roads with ease and are wrapped in Specialized Turbo Pro tyres in 28c size, featuring BlackBelt Protection to help prevent punctures.

Get into the racing spirit with the Specialized Roubaix Elite endurance road bike.

Better than expected

I can’t fault the bike.I had a Roubaix sport sl2 in 2013, that was a great bike but I had size 54 (being 5 feet 11 I’m between sizes ) but I’m more suited to a 56.With the seat post and the future shock I thought the Roubaix elite is the one for me.couldn't wait to try it out and when I did I couldn’t believe the difference the future shock makes.I was a bit concerned what It would be like climbing, when you get out of the saddle but it’s not a problem at all,and I’ve done quite a few miles on it already.Very comfortable.I’m really pleased with my bike and the service from trendz many thanks
