Specialized S-Works Roubaix Dura-Ace Di2 Road Bike 2018
Utilising Specialized’s most technologically advanced carbon fibre and integrating with Shimano’s top of the line components, the Specialized S-Works Roubaix Dura-Ace Di2 Road Bike 2018 is ready to go the distance, and keep you comfortable when doing so. Its wide range of features takes the bar to new heights, keeping you efficient in every situation and ensuring that rougher roads don’t pose a threat to your enjoyment.
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.
Working alongside this Future Shock suspension is Specialized’s S-Works Carbon Hover Drop handlebar, which raises the height of your hands in the centre of the bars to increase your comfort over rougher surfaces. Specialized’s S-Wrap handlebar tape provides a plush, continuous level of soft yet grippy comfort, too.
Specialized have instilled their confidence into Shimano’s wide range of top of the line componentry, and the Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 9070 hydraulic disc brakes pay testament to their innovate or die attitude. Modulating heat efficiently and keeping your braking reliable, predictable and powerful in every instance, these disc brakes are the perfect choice for a bike of this calibre. No matter whether you’re descending tight, technical switchbacks or hammering down long, open gradients, you won’t find brakes so well suited to every situation as these.
Shimano’s Dura-Ace Di20 9150, 11-speed gearing is also another step towards overall supremacy when on the bike. Shifting in an instant and not skipping a beat, this electronic setup keeps you in the right gear at every point of your ride and thanks to its incredibly intelligent computer system, will never over or under shift - leaving you ready to lay down the power as and when you need to. Specialized’s very own S-Works FACT Carbon crankset perfectly complements this drivetrain, staying strong and rigid for an explosive and efficient power transfer.
Roval CLX 32 Disc wheels are another impressive feature of this bike, and are known for their supremely rigid and confidence inspiring comfort and stiffness. Sprinting out the saddle, sitting back and spinning up climbs or just hammering along the cobbles of the Paris-Roubaix, they go without falter, and thanks to their Win Tunnel Engineered construction, cut through the air like a hot knife through butter.
Equipped with Specialized Turbo Cotton clincher tyres, which have been tested and are proven as some of the fastest tyres on earth, you’ll be rolling more efficiently than ever without any rolling resistance. Grip is also provided in abundance, allowing you to corner like you’re on the rails at every instance.
Finishing off the entire package are Specialized’s own S-Works Phenom GT saddle and CG-R FACT carbon seatpost. Working together to offer small amounts of vertical flex and enough padding to soften the blows of rougher surfaces, everything about this bike is ready to perform both on and off-road.
