Product Description

5/5 BikeRadar “The Roubaix's comfort, control and handling qualities are among the very best”

road.cc - Sportive and Endurance Bike of the Year 2017-18

Ride smoother, ride faster. The Specialized Roubaix Expert is an endurance road bike that is ideal for long distance racing and sportives, especially on rough road surfaces,

Specialized developed the Roubaix to race over the challenging road surfaces that are found on Spring classic races, like the iconic Paris-Roubaix. The lightweight FACT 10r carbon frame is made to go the distance, and is extremely capable on rough roads.

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.

Paired with the Future Shock, the seatpost features rearward arc compliance that leaves room for the seatpost to flex slightly inside the frame, reducing vibrations and bumps from filtering to the saddle.

The Rider-First Engineered™ technology that Specialized use to build their frames takes into account people of all sizes, making each size of the bike ride with exactly the same characteristics, 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 and thru-axle, allowing extremely precise steering.

The full Shimano Ultegra 2x11 speed drivetrain features a compact chainset, and wide range cassette, to give you all the gears you need to tackle every climb. Shimano Ultegra hydraulic disc brakes give you confident stopping power in all weather conditions. Lightweight, tough, and reliable, the Roval SLX 24 Disc wheels feature DT Swiss 350 hubs.

Experience next level road smoothing and efficiency, on the Specialized Roubaix Expert sportive road bike.

Amazing to ride

Arrived a few days ago and riding it has been absolutely amazing so far.. Very smooth, fast, comfortable, and feels like it was built very well. The brakes are insanely good, going to take some getting used to!! It glides over surfaces which used to be uncomfortable on my Cannondale Synapse, its like night and day.. One small gripe, is that the bike didn't come with a fully equipped SWAT box, they don't come with the inner tube, valve extender, co2 head, or any tyre levers that are advertised when you buy a SWAT box standalone. Granted, its only a small gripe, but this is £30/£40 worth of stuff that you will HAVE to order separately as the preformed holes in the SWAT box will only take the Specialized specific ones - and at £3800, personally I'd expect it to be a fully equipped SWAT box, not half a job.
