2018 Roubaix Comp Gloss Sunset Cham/Tar Blk Edge Fade/Rkt Red/Clean

When you're rolling smoother, you're rolling faster. & regardless of if you're on the cobbles of Northern France or the chip & seal of your hometown, you'll benefit immensely from the Roubaix Comp.

The super-light frame has been constructed from our FACT 10r carbon fiber. Its stiffness levels are also off the charts, & compared to the SL4 iteration of yesteryear, you'll experience a whole new, faster, & more efficient geometry. Through some engineering sorcery, however, we've managed to keep the same fit, feel, & position that we've all come to love from the SL4, & kept it consistent throughout the size-range due to our Rider-First Engineered™ construction.

Of course, you're probably thinking, "get on to the suspension thing up front." We call it Future Shock, & essentially, it's a piston in the head tube with 20mm of travel. We developed this technology in partnership with McLaren Applied Technologies, & the result of this are a host of drastic performance improvements, namely in the vertical compliance department. Without giving a physics lecture, we found that focusing on vertical compliance, instead of fork splay, meant that we could improve smoothness, speed, & comfort in one fell swoop. & of all the bikes that we've tested with our Rolling Efficiency Model, the new Roubaix outperforms anything on the market.

Lastly, we spec'd it with awesome components, like Ultegra 8000 11-speed mechanical shifting, 8020 hydraulic disc brakes, & ultra-tough Roval SLX 24 wheels that have been cased in our Turbo Pro 28mm tires.
