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

Expand your riding horizons to even the very roughest roads, on the Specialized Roubaix Expert Ultegra Di2. This endurance road bike features cutting edge frame and component technology to offer a smoother and faster ride on every road.

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.

Nothing shifts like Di2. The Full Shimano Ultegra Di2 electronic drivetrain features a compact chainset, and wide range cassette, and is ideal for taking on the varied terrain you find on long distance routes. Ultegra hydraulic disc brakes offer refined stopping control in all weather conditions.

Ride the future today, on the Specialized Roubaix Exert Di2.

Comfortable and super-quick!

Having owned a Specialized Roubaix previously, I thought generally knew what to expect from the range; but I was wrong. The 2018 Roubaix is twice as comfortable as the pervious ‘Zert’ era and the Future Shock really works to smooth things out (you will not notice any travel in the ride) and boy, it’s fast, proper ‘Tarmac’ fast. You don’t certainly need the cobbles to benefit from the ride, but I’m finding that keeping the Garmin tightly attached to the bars a struggle as the Future Shock constantly tries to throw it off. The disc brakes pretty much saved my life in the first wet outing, so I am an instant fan, and if you’ve never tried Di2 you will be in love from minute one (I’m certainly never going back). The seat looks great, but I instantly swapped it out for an ISM as I’m a sucker for comfort. Finally, I need to commend Tredz and their excellent delivery and communications. It’s certainly true that if you go to Specialized directly you do can a few extra bells and whistles (such as a new fit if you need), but in terms of speed of delivery you cannot beat Tredz. 100% perfect service and delivery that I cannot fault in any way (thank you Tredz!). Buy the 2018 Roubaix, you will not be disappointed!
