Specialized S-Works Roubaix eTap (2017)
The 2017 Specialized S-Works Roubaix eTap is a top-of-the-line road bike. Extensively redesigned for 2017, the new Roubaix incorporates Specialized's Future Shock, a 20mm-travel suspension system integrated within the steerer tube, offering dramatic changes to rider feel while keeping the ride consistent. The seat clamp has been dropped down to the stays, allowing the post to offer more compliance. The frame itself is stiffer and lighter, ready to fly off the line.
Kit is commensurate: SRAM's new wireless electronic-shift eTap drivetrain includes compact chainrings and a wide cassette for mountain climbs, hydraulic disc brakes, the new Roval carbon wheelset, and, of course, Specialized Turbo slicks, the last in a cushy 26mm.
An excellent road bike.
