Everyone could benefit from a little bit of Roubaix in their lives. This awesome, versatile machine provides everything you need for exploring the open road, while leaving you enough in the wallet for a round of cakes and coffee at the cafe stop.
As you’d expect, the FACT 9r carbon fibre frame is extremely lightweight, benefitting from Specialized’s years of in-house lay-up and design expertise. If you’ve ever ridden the SL4 version of days gone by you’ll realise instantly just how much faster and more efficiently designed the Roubaix 2018 is.
Despite the increase in speed and stiffness, we’ve worked our magic to maintain the same fit and position that made the SL4 so popular. This feeling is maintained across our entire size range due to our Rider-First Engineered Construction.
Don’t fret; we know you’re waiting to hear about the suspension. Our Future Shock is, essentially, a piston that sits in the head tube providing 20mm of travel. McLaren Applied Technologies partnered with us to work on this development and the results have been fantastic. We discovered that focussing on vertical compliance – rather than fork splay – led to a drastic increase in performance. For riders without a physics degree, this means a much smoother, faster and more comfortable ride.
We’ve tested a wide range of bikes in our Rolling Efficiency Model and the Roubaix is yet to be outperformed. It’s equipped with hassle-free mechanical disc brakes ensuring you’ll spend more time eating up miles and less time in the garage. Finally there’s a Shimano Tiagra drivetrain and reliable Axis Sport Disc wheels.
- The FACT 9r carbon frame has all of the road absorbing, engineered compliance that you'd expect from a bike born on the cobbles, yet its compact endurance race design provides all of the responsiveness and performance you need for long days in the saddle.
- FACT carbon fork is optimized for stiffness and responsive steering.
- Shimano Tiagra shifting ensures reliable access to a wide range of gears.
