|Style||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 Specialized's all-new Roubaix Elite, you'll be taming wild asphalt without any extra effort. This is how road bikes were always meant to be. The frame is the lightest that they've ever made, and it's been constructed from 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, they've managed to keep the same fit, feel, and position that we've all come to love from the SL4. Of course, you're probably thinking, "get on to the suspension thing up front." They call it Future Shock, and essentially, it's a piston in the head tube with 20mm of travel. They 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. By focusing on vertical compliance, instead of fork splay, Specialized were able to improve smoothness, speed, and comfort in one fell swoop. And of all the bikes that Specialized tested with thier Rolling Efficiency Model, the new Roubaix outperforms anything on the market.
