Take a look at our written review here —
Named after the gruelling Paris-Roubaix road race the Specialized Roubaix range is designed to offer a smooth, fast and efficient ride over any road surface, including the very roughest. With numerous wins on the notorious cobbles of this iconic race the Roubaix lives up to the mantra ‘smoother is faster’. The 2018 Roubaix bikes we review here, builds on the 2017 redesign that saw this concept taken a stage further, with the introduction of Future Shock technology. Developed in partnership with McLaren Future Shock offers a smoother ride with improved efficiency and sharper handling characteristics.
With its tried-and-tested endurance road bike riding position, combined with a lightweight carbon fibre composite frame, Future Shock technology and disc brakes on all models, the Roubaix is a smooth rolling road bike that makes light work of challenging conditions.
