With seven victories in the Paris-Roubaix, our Roubaix has shown that Comfort is Speed. But there's more, the new Roubaix Sport now delivers uncompromising performance by introducing the radical new Future Shock 1.5 that gives you more control and damping options, the new Pavé seatpost that makes our Roubaix the most balanced yet, aerodynamics that match the Tarmac, and the Rider-First frame Engineered™ that saves a serious amount of weight. Still comfortable? Sure, but not only is it a comfortable bike, performance has been behind every engineering decision we've made. This is the new Roubaix.
This Roubaix Sport has great quality. We've fitted it with the Shimano 105 11-speed group for its sharp shifting and powerful hydraulic disc brakes, as well as the comfortable and strong DT R470 Disc wheels, the new S-Works Pavé seatpost, 28 mm Turbo Pro tyres and the Power Sport saddle.
The new frame offers all the performance without compromise and all for the perfect balance between aerodynamics, performance, lightness thanks to the FACT 10r carbon and Rider-First Engineering™, with tube shapes that were born in our FreeFoil shape library and validated in the Win tunnel, the new Roubaix is as aerodynamic as the Tarmac SL6. Meanwhile, to ensure lightness and ride quality, we used a Rider-First design Engineered™ to provide optimal rigidity and compliance in all sizes from 44 to 64 cm. Of course, we saved a lot of weight in the process. We have also left enough space to mount 33mm tyres.
In addition to the new frame, we have also developed a completely new S-Works Pavé seatpost. Not only is this the first compatible seat post that is aerodynamic, but it does so without adding any additional weight. Starting with the same D-shaped design found on the Tarmac, we took it a step further by incorporating additional flex in the top and developing a new clamp design with the frame. As a result, it delivers great performance, while remaining perfectly balanced with the front, and offers a smooth and sublime ride, no matter what the road conditions.
With 20 mm of travel to filter out road irregularities, Future Shock 1.5 not only provides a smoother, more comfortable ride, but also reduces fatigue and increases speed in difficult terrain.
The new Smooth Boot improves aesthetics, providing a clean transition from the steering head tube to the power.
