With seven wins at Paris-Roubaix, our Roubaix has shown that comfort is speed. Until now, however, comfort has brought with it some compromises, but now, the new Roubaix Comp now delivers uncompromising performance by introducing the radical new Future Shock 1.5 that gives you more control on rough roads, a new Pavé seatpost that makes our Roubaix the most balanced yet, aerodynamics that match the Tarmac, and the Rider-First frame Engineered™ that really saves weight. Still comfortable? Sure, but not only is it a comfortable bike, performance has been behind every engineering decision we've made. Here's the new Roubaix.
This Roubaix Comp provides tremendous quality, but like the frame itself, this quality does not come alone. We've fitted it with Shimano's Ultegra 11-speed group for its crisp shifting and powerful hydraulic disc brakes, as well as the soft and rugged DT R470 disc wheels, the new S-Works Pavé saddle, the 28mm Turbo Pro tyres and our fan favourite Power Comp 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.
To complement the new frame, we have developed the new S-Works Pavé which is the first aerodynamic seatpost with vertical elasticity. Starting from the same D-shaped design found in the Tarmac, we added flexibility to the top of the seat post and developed a new saddle clamp design in the lowered position in the frame. This makes the vertical elasticity of the rear perfectly balanced with that of the front, so you can enjoy a smooth and balanced ride on any type of road.
With 20 mm of travel to filter out the irregularities of the road, Future Shock 1.5 not only offers a smoother and 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.
