With seven wins at Paris-Roubaix, our Roubaix has proven that Smoother is Faster. Until this moment, however, smooth has admittedly come with some compromises. But not anymore. The all-new Roubaix now delivers compliance without compromise by introducing a radical new Future Shock 1.5 that gives you more control on rough roads, a new PavÃ© seatpost that creates our most balanced Roubaix to date, aerodynamics that equal the Tarmac, & a Rider-First Engineeredâ„¢ frame that's shed some serious weight. Is it still comfortable? Sure, but don't call it a comfort bike, because performance was behind every engineering decision we made. This is the new Roubaix.
This Roubaix provides a tremendous value, but like the frame itself, this value doesn't come with any compromises. We spec'd it with Shimano's Tiagra 10-speed group for its crisp shifts & powerful hydraulic disc brakes, as well as reliable Axis Sport Disc wheels, a Praxis Alba crankset, the all-new S-Works PavÃ© seatpost, 28mm Espoir Sport tires, & our fan-favorite Power Sport saddle.
The new frame delivers compliance without compromise via the perfect balance of aerodynamics, light overall weight via a FACT 10r carbon construction, compliance, & Rider-First Engineeringâ„¢. With tube shapes that were born in our FreeFoil Shape Library & validated in the Win Tunnel, the new Roubaixâ€™s as aero as the Tarmac SL6. Meanwhile, to ensure the weight & ride quality, we turned to a Rider-First Engineeredâ„¢ design to deliver optimal stiffness & compliance across all sizes, from 44 to 64cm. Of course, the frame has shed some serious weight in the process. & to prep you for your own Hell of the North, weâ€™ve made room for 33mm tires. To go along with the new frame, weâ€™ve also developed a totally-new S-Works PavÃ© seatpost. Not only is it the first compliant seatpost thatâ€™s ALSO aerodynamic, it does so without any additional weight or finicky contraptions. Starting with the same D-shape design found on the Tarmac, we took its compliance a step further by building additional flex into the upper & developing a new drop-clamp design in the frame. This provides plenty of compliance, while staying perfectly balanced with the front-end, so you get a smooth, balanced ride no matter how rough the road. With 20mm of rough-road-taming travel, the Future Shock 1.5 not only delivers a smoother, more comfortable ride, but it also reduces fatigue & increases speed over harsh terrain. The new Smooth Boot, meanwhile, enhances the aesthetics to bring a clean transition from the head tube to the stem
