The 2017 Specialized Roubaix Expert is a brand-new approach to racing on cobbles. The Future Shock, 20mm of suspension integrated within the steerer tube, provides a whole new level of rider comfort without any deleterious effect on performance. The all-carbon frameset is stiff and efficient, delivering power straight to the DT wheels, while offering the rider a very pleasant ride, fatigue a thing of the past. The Expert is equipped with 26mm-wide Turbo slicks, providing low rolling resistance and secure footing on pavement wet or dry. Shimano's Ultegra group delivers fast, clean shifts and precise all-weather braking control, the latter courtesy of the hydraulic disc brakes.
A very good road bike.
