Specialized Roubaix Elite Road Bike 2018
Whether you want all-day comfort or fancy yourself as the next Paris-Roubaix champion, there’s no denying the Specialized Roubaix Elite Road Bike 2018 is ready to take your speed and performance to new heights. Everything from its lightweight frame to the range of capable components gives you the confidence to head out the door and push harder than ever before.
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.
Shimano’s Ultegra 8020 hydraulic disc brakes are the perfect choice for a bike of this nature, giving you the stopping power to fly into the corner at speeds and brake light, whilst their heat modulation ensures you get the same performance at every stage of your ride.
Shimano Ultegra 8000, 11-speed gearing also gives a wide range of spin to get up the steepest of climbs, shifting into the correct gear without falter. The 11-32t cassette keeps your legs turning at the end of a long day, too, ensuring you don’t run out of gears when the gradients starts to ramp.
Roval SLX 24 Disc wheels stay rigid no matter if you’re sprinting out the saddle or sitting back and relaxing. Fitted with Specialized’s Turbo Pro tyres which are renowned for their low rolling resistance and high-grip, you’ll continue at a higher than average pace and wow other riders as you knock away at their PB’s.
