Specialized Roubaix Elite Road Bike 2018
The Specialized Roubaix Elite Road Bike 2018 has been described as a road bike to end all road bikes, comprising of highly capable components, a low weight FACT 10r carbon fibre frame and a wide range of features set to push both your comfort and enjoyment on the bike to new levels.
Specialized’s FACT 10r carbon fibre is renowned for its immense strength to weight ratio, and once you step foot on it, you’ll realise why. Every ounce of power you push through the pedals turns into eye watering, untamable speed that’ll see you smashing KOM’s and becoming the envy of all your friends. Its immense rigidity keeps you efficient and capable in every situation, meaning you can sit back and spin up climbs, hammer it over the cobbles or sprint out the saddle without any loss of energy.
The frame features Specialized’s Rider-First Engineered technology which ensures each and every size of Roubaix in the range is as comfortable and performance orientated as the last. It also uses Specialized’s Future Shock suspension which smooths out the road ahead, allowing you to hit the cobbles with pure speed and continue to stay as comfortable as possible. As they say, smoother is faster, and this bike is blisteringly fast.
Of course, a lightweight frame is all well and good, but how about the components? Specialized’s approach to providing an unparalleled selection of components is stated here, with Shimano 105 5800, 11-speed gearing to get you up the steepest of gradients, and Shimano RS505 hydraulic disc brakes to get you down the otherwise with confidence.
The hydraulic disc brakes modulate heat efficiently, so on those long, winding descents when all you want to do is stop and take a photo, you can be assured of consistent braking performance at every corner.
DT R470 Disc wheels are another great choice, working beautifully with the Specialized Turbo Pro tyres to keep you rolling smoothly, efficiently and in greater comfort. In tests, the tyres have been proven as some of the fastest in the world, ensuring puncture protection at the highest level, too.
- Specialized’s S-Works FACT 10r carbon fibre construction is incredibly lightweight and durable, ensuring you can pedal efficiently over long distances
- Future Shock technology provides 20mm of plush suspension to smooth out rougher surfaces
- Shimano 105 5800, 11-speed gearing gives a wide range of spin to get you up the steepest of gradients
- Shimano RS505 hydraulic disc brakes remain efficient and continue to perform in a wide range of conditions, whether that be torrential downpour or blazing sunshine
