Some roads are simply not designed for riding bikes over. But the number of truly impassable routes is smaller than ever with the formidable Specialized Roubaix 2018 leaping from the blocks. the Roubaix Expert with sharp-shifting Shimano Ultegra Di2 and our pioneering Future Shock technology makes riding rough roads the only option.

Named for the biggest Monument of them all, Paris-Roubaix, the Specialized Roubaix Expert is far from the clunky endurance bike its rough terrain capability might suggest. With a super-light FACT 10r carbon fibre frame and a much more efficient geometry, the Roubaix is a fast and fierce racing machine. What's more, the same ride feel, fit and superlative stiffness features are consistent through the size range thanks to our Rider-First Engineered design process.

Perhaps the most exciting thing about the new Roubaix is our Future Shock tech, now in its second year. Developed alongside McLaren Applied Technologies, the Future Shock is a piston in the head tube with 20mm of travel, offering dramatic improvements in vertical compliance. What that means is that rather than stretching out the wheel base as with traditional suspension systems, the impact from cobbles, potholes and rough terrain are absorbed with a vertical action, making for a smoother, faster and more comfortable ride. The addition of Future Shock allowed our Roubaix models to outperform the other bikes we tested against our Rolling Efficiency Model.

The 2018 Roubaix Expert not only features Shimano's fantastically sharp Ultegra Di2 shifting, but also hydraulic 8070 disc brakes that will stop on a penny and lightweight Roval SLX 24 wheels with DT Swiss 350 hubs. What are you waiting for With the Roubaix beneath you, the road less travelled is yours for the taking.

  • 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.
