Hell is hereby officially conquered
With 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.
Future Shock 2.0
Suspend the rider, not the bike: The Future Shock sits above the frame, isolating you from road harshness. This gives you all the benefits of a compliant ride without taking a hit on handling or efficiency over any road condition.
More speed. More control. More safety. The all-new Future Shock 2.0 delivers 20mm of axial compliance via a hydraulic damper that suspends you, not the bike. This new system uses an oil port to simultaneously control the compression and rebound damping, while an easy-to-access dial above the stem enables you to make on-the-fly damping adjustments.
Compliance with compromise. The new Pavé seatpost is the first compliant seatpost that’s aerodynamic. Starting with the same D-shape design found on the Tarmac, we built-in flex throughout the post and developed a new drop-clamp design in the frame. This makes the rear compliance perfectly balanced with the front-end, so you get a smooth, balanced ride no matter what.
Lighter. Faster. More Aero.
The new Roubaix frame delivers the perfect balance of aerodynamics, light overall weight, and compliance. Its FreeFoil tube shapes take cues from the Venge, and when validated in the Win Tunnel, the chassis is more aero than the Tarmac SL6. A Rider-First Engineered design ensures optimal stiffness and compliance across all sizes, as well as a frame weight below 900 grams (Size 56cm | Black).
We’ve learned that there’s likely more difference between two male cyclists than between a male and female. This means that gender alone doesn’t provide nearly enough data to specialize. It means that separating bikes by male or female is arbitrary and outdated. It means that it’s time to go beyond gender.
