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 fiber. Its stiffness levels are
also off the charts, and compared to the SL4 iteration of yesteryear,
you'll experience a whole new, faster, and more efficient geometry.
Through some engineering sorcery, however, we've managed to keep the
same fit, feel, and position that we've all come to love from the SL4,
and kept it consistent throughout the size-range due to our Rider-First
Of course, you're probably thinking,
'get on to the suspension thing up front.' We call it Future Shock, and
essentially, it's a piston in the head tube with 20mm of travel. We
developed this technology in partnership with McLaren Applied
Technologies, and 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,
and comfort in one fell swoop. And 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, and DT R470 Disc
wheels that have been cased in our Turbo Pro 28mm tires.
