We all know the benefits of a smooth ride; your bike feels fast and eager to eat up the miles. Regardless of whether you're on the cobbles of Northern France or that horrible unsealed section on the way to work, the Roubaix Comp will help ease your rough road woes.
The frame has been constructed from our FACT 10r carbon fibre, making for a featherweight machine that packs the punch of a backstreet brawler. Stiffness levels are also sky high and the Roubaix Comp is noticeably faster thanks in part to new and improved geometry than the SL4 iteration from yesteryear. We tasked our engineers with increasing speed while preserving the same fit of our popular SL4; it's fair to say they rose to the challenge. Thanks to our Rider-First Engineered construction, this great feel is maintained across the entire size range.
We know you'll be wondering about the all-important suspension, the feature which makes the Roubaix so special. We've named it Future Shock and it's essentially a piston in the head tube that offers 20mm of travel. We worked with specialists at McLaren Applied Technologies to develop the Future Shock and the resulting performance improvements are highly impressive. We'll spare you a physics lecture, but by exploring the effects of vertical compliance we were able to improve smoothness, speed and comfort all at once. Plenty of bikes have been put through their paces in our Rolling Efficient Model and the new Roubaix Comp bests anything on the market.
The build spec is fit for purpose with the awesome Ultegra 8000 11-speed mechanical shifting, 8020 hydraulic disc brakes and ultra-tough Roval SLX wheels twinned with our Turbo Pro 28mm tyres.
