The latest Roubaix is, according to Specialized's wind tunnel testing, every bit as aerodynamic as the Tarmac SL6. That's pretty remarkable for an endurance bike.
The updated FutureShock front suspension gives 20mm of shock-absorbing travel, and a specially designed S-Works Pavé seatpost, clamped lower down in a revised design, provides extra comfort at the rear.
This is a bike that offers most of the performance of the S-Works model at a more accessible price, and that theme continues with the Roval C38 carbon wheelset, always a popular entry point into carbon rims and superb value for money.
