Specialized Roubaix

Beyond Gender

In 2019, Specialized is going Beyond Gender, segmenting by gender just doesn’t cut it. Why? Because they've learned that there’s likely more difference between two male cyclists than a male and female. This means that separating bikes by male or female is arbitrary and outdated.

Specialized are reinventing cycling by ditching binary classifications. So, from now on, Specialized won’t make the industry’s highest and fastest performing bikes for men or women, instead, they’ll simply "Specialized" in producing the best bikes for the rider.


Every crack, every pothole, every rough patch and bit of chip seal—the off-limits boneshakers to the smoothest homestretches—the Roubaix isn't resigned to a single day in France, it's made for every road, everywhere. And for models with the all-new Future Shock, rides are now even smoother and even faster.

By sourcing cutting-edge, Silicon Valley technology, we’ve engineered a bike that’s lighter than our Venge and more aero than our Tarmac. The All-New Roubaix. The most technically advanced machine we’ve ever made.

New Features

Lighter Frame

Below 900 grams (Size 56cm)

The new frame delivers compliance without compromise via the perfect balance of aerodynamics, light overall weight, compliance, and Rider-First Engineering™. To ensure the weight and ride quality, Specialized turned to a Rider-First Engineered™ design to deliver optimal stiffness and compliance across all sizes, from 44 to 64cm. Of course, the frame also stays below 900 grams (Size 56cm).

Improved Aaerodynamics

With tube shapes that were born in Specialized's FreeFoil Shape Library and validated in their Win Tunnel, the new Roubaix’s as aero as the Tarmac SL6.

Even more tyres clearance

To prep you for your own Hell of the North, Specialized have made room for 33mm tires.


New Pavé Seatpost

New Compliant & Aerodynamic Seatpost

To go along with the new frame, Specialized have also developed a totally-new S-Works Pavé seatpost. Not only is it the first compliant seatpost that’s ALSO aerodynamic, it does so without any additional weight or finicky contraptions.

Starting with the same D-shape design found on the Tarmac, Specialized took its compliance a step further by building additional flex into the upper and developing a new drop-clamp design in the frame. This provides plenty of compliance, while staying perfectly balanced with the front-end, so you get a smooth, balanced ride no matter how rough the road.


New Future Shock 1.5 and 2.0

Future Shock 1.5

With 20mm of rough-road-taming travel, the Future Shock 1.5 not only delivers a smoother, more comfortable ride, but it also reduces fatigue and increases speed over harsh terrain. The new Smooth Boot, meanwhile, enhances the aesthetics to bring a clean transition from the head tube to the stem

Future Shock 2.0

The Future Shock 2.0 is the result of Specialized pro riders’ demands for the cobbles of Roubaix. It’s smoother, faster, and gives you more control via a knob atop the stem. This knob adjusts compression from fully-open to stiff, while hydraulically-damped internals control rebound. Add it up, and this latest version will reduce fatigue and increase your speed, no matter the terrain. The new Smooth Boot, top cap, and Future Stem also enhance the aesthetic, so you get a clean transition from head tube to stem.
