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 all-new S-Works Roubaix enables ride comfort without compromise with the radical new Future Shock 2.0 with adjustable cushioning that gives you more control, the new Pavé seat post, which makes it the most balanced Roubaix ever. Add to that the aerodynamics that resemble those of the Tarmac, and yet the Rider First Engineered ™ frame remains below the 900 gram mark (frame size 56). 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 revolutionary frame comes with the brand new Pavé seat post. You are guaranteed a perfectly balanced, comfortable and fast ride.
- The new frame offers a certain degree of flexibility without compromise: the best balance of aerodynamics, low overall weight, 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.
- The Future Shock 2.0 is the direct result of the wishes and requirements of our pro riders, directly from the cobblestone streets of Roubaix. It is smoother, faster and gives you the opportunity to adjust the damping on the top of the cartridge. The combination of all of these will make your body tire more slowly and improve your speed no matter what the road is like. The new smooth boot makes the Future Shock even more aesthetic by creating a clean transition from the head tube to the stem.
