As one of the first endurance road bikes on the market, the Specialized Roubaix has earned itself an enviable reputation for its beautifully smooth ride qualities and stable feel out on the open road. Whereas the Venge is Specialized’s aero race bike, and the Tarmac is their all-round lightweight road bike, the Roubaix is designed as a comfortable option for all-day riding and taking on mixed road surfaces. Not so keen on racing but just want to spend your weekends on epic rides with your mates? Then the Roubaix is the versatile road bike for you.

  After a decade of evolution, the new Roubaix sees the addition of a disc-specific frameset for those riders wanting access to smoother braking power and all-weather braking performance. By designing the frame around disc brakes, Specialized have been able to increase tyre clearance while eliminating the traditional seat stay bride. This helps to increase vertical compliance through the thin seat stays, which are also equipped with Zertz inserts to mute road vibrations. The same inserts are used in the fork blades, which combined with the additional tyre clearance and the upright riding position, makes the Roubaix a supremely smooth bike to ride. Despite it’s comfortable ride, the Roubaix is still a performance machine that is the tool of choice for Pro Tour riders taking on the Spring Classics. Indeed, it got its name from the fabled Paris-Roubaix one-day race. Like the Tarmac, Specialized have built the Roubaix to be super responsive under power, with a massive downtube, OSBB and tapered head tube. This rock-solid connection serves as the backbone for the bike, and ensures there is minimal twisting and deflection when you’re giving it your all.
