Coming fully equipped with the Future Shock, a CeramicSpeed bottom bracket, CG-R seatpost, & a full SWAT™ box, the S-Works Roubaix frameset is the perfect start to your cobble-crushing dream build.
The frame is one of the lightest that we've ever made, & it's been constructed from our top-tier FACT 11r carbon fiber. Its stiffness levels are also off the charts, & compared to the SL4 iteration of yesteryear, you'll experience a whole new, faster, & more efficient geometry. Through some engineering sorcery, however, we've managed to keep the same fit, feel, & position that we've all come to love from the SL4, & kept it consistent throughout the size-range due to our Rider-First Engineered™ construction.
Of course, you're probably thinking, "get on to the suspension thing up front." We call it Future Shock, & essentially, it's a piston in the head tube with 20mm of travel. We developed this technology in partnership with McLaren Applied Technologies, & the result of this are a host of drastic performance improvements, namely in the vertical compliance department. Without giving a physics lecture, we found that focusing on vertical compliance, instead of fork splay, meant that we could improve smoothness, speed, & comfort in one fell swoop. & of all the bikes that we've tested with our Rolling Efficiency Model, the new Roubaix outperforms anything on the market.
