First the Tarmac, then the Venge. Now the new 2020 Specialized Roubaix. It’s lighter than a Venge. As aero as a Tarmac. Smoother and faster than the last Roubaix. Specialized has introduced a new Future Shock 2.0 that gives riders more control and damping options and a new Pavé seat post that creates the most balanced Roubaix to date. The Specialized Roubaix has always been known for comfort but the new 2020 Specialized Roubaix doesn’t stop at comfort. Performance was behind every engineering decision Specialized made. This is the new Roubaix. And it’s loaded.
Performance Meets Comfort
The all-new Roubaix is the perfect balance of aerodynamics, lightweight, stiffness and Rider-First Engineering™. Meet the road bike that eats cobbles for fun.
With the release of the new Roubaix comes the release of the new Pavé seatpost. It’s the first compliant seatpost that’s aero. Developed on the foundation of the D-shaped design on the Tarmac, Specialized has built-in flex through the post and created a new drop-clamp design in the frame. This created a perfectly balance between the rear and front end so you get a smooth and balanced right. No matter what.
The concept of ‘Smoother is Faster’ began with the FSR suspension and through the Roubaix, Specialized applied it to the road. Specialized became obsessed with designing the fastest machine on the cobbles. 15 years and 6 Paris-Roubaix wins later, the new iteration of the Specialized Roubaix brings more speed, control and stiffness. The roads can be pretty rough at times. The Roubaix doesn’t care.
When Future Shock was first introduced, we were all…shocked. The all-new Future Shock 2.0 delivers the same 20mm of axial compliance through a hydraulic damper that helps provided more safety and control. The new systems uses an oil port to control the compression and rebound dampening. There’s also an easily accessible stem that helps you make adjustments on the fly.
The FreeFoil tube shapes on the new 2020 Specialized Roubaix have been validated in wind tunnel testing. It’s now more aero than the Tarmac SL6 with optimal stiffness and compliance across all frame sizes. The frame weighs less than 900 grams (Size 56 cm in black).
The Specialized Roubaix is your catalyst to cobbles and rough roads. With all-new and updated technologies to engage your performance and comfort, the Roubaix is the most sophisticated road bike ever made by Specialized. Discover which Roubaix model is right for you.
