SMOOTHER IS FASTER
With six wins at Paris-Roubaix, the Roubaix has proven that Smoother is Faster. Until this moment, however, smooth has admittedly come with some compromises. But not anymore. The all-new Roubaix now delivers compliance without compromise by introducing a radical new Future Shock 2.0 that gives you more control and damping options, a new Pavé seatpost that creates the most balanced Roubaix to date, aerodynamics that equal the Tarmac, and a Rider-First Engineered™ frame that tips the scales below 900 grams. Is it still comfortable? Sure, but don’t call it a comfort bike, because performance was behind every engineering decision made.
This is the new Roubaix.

LIGHTER, FASTER, MORE AERO
The new Specialized Roubaix frame delivers the perfect balance of aerodynamics, overall weight, and compliance. It uses innovative aerodynamic tube shapes throughout the bike. A Rider-First Engineered™ design ensures optimal stiffness and compliance across all sizes, as well as a frame weight below 900 grams (1.98 pounds).
MORE CONTROL, MORE SPEED
The all-new Future Shock 2.0 delivers 20mm of axial (vertical) compliance via a hydraulic damper inside the head tube. This new system uses an oil port to simultaneously control the compression and rebound damping, while an easy-to-access dial above the stem enables you to make on-the-fly damping adjustments.
COMPLIANCE WITHOUT COMPROMISE
The completely new Pavé seatpost is the first compliant and aerodynamic seatpost. Starting with the same D-shape design found on the Tarmac, they built additional flex into the upper tube and developed a new drop-clamp design in the frame. This makes the rear compliance perfectly balanced with the front-end, so you get a smooth, balanced ride no matter what.
