With seven titles at Paris-Roubaix, our Roubaix has proven that smoother means faster. Until then, the smoother attribute always had to compromise, but that was the case! The completely redeveloped Roubaix enables driving comfort without compromise with the radical new Future Shock 1.5 with adjustable damping, which gives you more control, the new Pavé seat post, which makes it the most balanced Roubaix of all time. Add to that the aerodynamics that resemble those of the Tarmac and a Rider-First-Engineered ™ frame that has lost a lot of weight. And is it still comfortable? Yes, of course, but performance was behind every decision we made regarding the bike. This is our new Roubaix.
The Roubaix Comp is equipped with the Shimano Ultegra 11-speed groupset and powerful hydraulic disc brakes, as well as reliable DT R470 wheels, a Praxis Alba bottom bracket, the brand new S-Works Pavé seat post, reliable DT R470 disc tires and our popular Power Comp saddle.
- The new frame offers a certain degree of flexibility without compromise: the best balance of aerodynamics, low overall weight (FACT 10r carbon construction!), The ability to absorb uneven floors and Rider-First-Engineering ™. With new tube shapes created in our FreeFoil library and tested in our wind tunnel, the new Roubaix is as aerodynamic as the Tarmac SL6. In order to guarantee the low weight and the good driving characteristics, we have continued our Rider-First-Engineered ™ approach, which results in a stiff, but still comfortable frame, from frame height 44 cm to 64 cm. Of course, the frame has also lost significant weight in this process. In order to equip you for your own “Hell of the North”, we left space for 33 mm wide tires.
- We have developed a completely new S-Works Pavé seat post to match the frame. This is not only comfortable, but also aerodynamic, without any additional weight or any new frills. Based on the D-shaped design found on the Tarmac, we've taken the term compliance to a whole new level by incorporating additional flex into the top half of the column and developing a new type of drop-clamp column clamp. Thus, the support gives you a lot of comfort and is completely in balance with the front of the bike. It gives you a comfortable, balanced driving experience, no matter how rough the surface may be.
- With 20 mm of travel, the Future Shock 1.5 not only conveys a smoother and more comfortable ride, but also reduces fatigue and enables higher speeds on rough roads. The new smooth boot makes the Future Shock even more aesthetic by creating a clean transition from the head tube to the stem.
