The idea of a perfect road is a myth, as there's always a chip, a crack, a rough patch—you name it. But with our Roubaix Elite, you'll be taming wild asphalt without any extra effort. This is how road bikes were always meant to be.
The super-light frame has been constructed from our FACT 10r carbon fibre. Its stiffness levels are also off the charts, & compared to the SL4 iteration of yesteryear, you'll experience a whole new, faster, & more efficient geometry. Through some engineering sorcery, however, we've managed to keep the same fit, feel, & position that we've all come to love from the SL4, & kept it consistent throughout the size-range due to our Rider-First Engineered™ construction.
Of course, you're probably thinking, ""get on to the suspension thing up front."" We call it Future Shock, & essentially, it's a piston in the head tube with 20mm of travel. We developed this technology in partnership with McLaren Applied Technologies, & the result of this are a host of drastic performance improvements, namely in the vertical compliance department. Without giving a physics lecture, we found that focusing on vertical compliance, instead of fork splay, meant that we could improve smoothness, speed, & comfort in one fell swoop. & of all the bikes that we've tested with our Rolling Efficiency Model, the new Roubaix outperforms anything on the market.
Lastly, we spec'd the Roubaix Elite with 105 11-speed mechanical shifting, RS hydraulic disc brakes, & DT R470 Disc wheels that have been cased in our Turbo Pro 28mm tires.
