HOME > BIKES > ROAD > 2018 ROUBAIX EXPERT

We all know that a smoother ride is a faster ride, but it was only when we twinned our latest technology with our new Roubaix frame that our eyes were truly opened to the benefits.

We wanted a bike this good to be moulded with the best possible technology and our FACT 10r carbon fibre frame is super-light and engineered to perfection. The stiffness levels are off the chart and you'll be made aware of an increase in speed in just a few miles on the road. We've made no sacrifices when it comes to comfort and the Roubaix Expert matches our popular SL4 range of previous years in terms of fit and feel.Our Rider-First Engineered construction is in charge of keeping your ride position just right across the entire size range.

We know you've been waiting to hear about the suspension and, in particular, our market-leading Future Shock technology. It's essentially a piston which creates 20mm of travel and leads to a significantly improved performance. No avenue was left unexplored as we worked with McLaren Applied Technologies to focus on the potential benefits in the vertical compliance department. We'll spare you the physics lesson, but we found we were able to dramatically improve both smoothness and comfort by raising the suspension to the cockpit, rather than having it built into the fork. We tested the Roubaix in our Rolling Efficiency Model and were happy to see it outperform all the other bikes in its category.

Shimano's new Ultegra 8000 is in charge of shifting duties and the bikes come with Ultegra 8020 hydraulic disc brakes. Lastly there's light alloy Roval SLZ 24 disc wheels with DT Swiss 350 hubs which will keep you moving smoothly wherever your Sundays take you.

  • Featuring our Rider-First Engineeredâ„¢ design that ensures every frame size has the same legendary responsiveness and smooth ride quality that you'd expect from a Roubaix. The FACT 10r frameset holds its own with our high-end carbon offerings, with the ideal blend of light overall weight and targeted stiffness, while the all-new Future Shock "suspension" system at the cockpit delivers a revolutionary degree of comfort and control.
  • A Roubaix Disc fork is built from our FACT carbon fiber for supreme stiffness, strength, and reactivity, while a thru-axle design only stands to bolster all of the above.
  • The Roval SLX 24 Disc wheelset features a sub-1600-gram weight, a 20-millimeter internal width, and an alloy construction that makes it a solid performer when the roads turn rough.
