Specialized Roubaix Expert Ultegra Di2 Road Bike 2018
Pitted as one of the most comfortable bikes on the market, Specialized have injected every ounce of technology into the Roubaix, and in the Specialized Roubaix Expert Ultegra Di2 Road Bike 2018, you get everything you could possibly want - and more.
The frame is designed using Specialized’s FACT 10r carbon fibre, which is renowned for its immense strength to weight ratio, and once you step foot on it, you’ll realise why. Every ounce of power you push through the pedals turns into eye watering, untamable speed that’ll see you smashing KOM’s and becoming the envy of all your friends. Its immense rigidity keeps you efficient and capable in every situation, meaning you can sit back and spin up climbs, hammer it over the cobbles or sprint out the saddle without any loss of energy.
The frame features Specialized’s Rider-First Engineered technology which ensures each and every size of Roubaix in the range is as comfortable and performance orientated as the last. It also uses Specialized’s Future Shock suspension which smooths out the road ahead, allowing you to hit the cobbles with pure speed and continue to stay as comfortable as possible. As they say, smoother is faster, and this bike is blisteringly fast.
Blisteringly fast shifting that doesn’t miss a beat comes in the form of Shimano’s Ultegra Di2 8070, 11-speed gearing. Known for its tap to shift design, you’ll be able to immediately respond to gradient changes and keep spinning at a more comfortable cadence, and with an 11-28t cassette, you get a wide enough range for every profile.
Of course, all this immense speed calls for some powerful braking performance, and that’s taken care of by Shimano’s Ultegra 8020, hydraulic disc brakes. They offer greater versatility in a wider range of situations compared to disc brakes, and in the pouring rain you’ll immediately notice the difference as you can brake later.
Roval SLX 24 Disc wheels stay rigid no matter if you’re sprinting out the saddle or sitting back and relaxing. Fitted with Specialized’s Turbo Pro tyres which are renowned for their low rolling resistance and high-grip, you’ll continue at a higher than average pace and wow other riders as you knock away at their PB’s.
