Coming fully equipped with the Future Shock a CeramicSpeed bottom bracket CG-R seatpost and a full SWATTM 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 and it's been constructed from our top-tier FACT 11r carbon fibre. Its stiffness levels are also off the charts and compared to the SL4 iteration of yesteryear you'll experience a whole new faster and more efficient geometry. Through some sophisticated engineering however we've managed to keep the same fit feel and position that we've all come to love from the SL4 and kept it consistent throughout the size-range due to our Rider-First EngineeredTM construction.
Of course you're probably thinking "get on to the suspension thing up front." We call it Future Shock and essentially it's a piston in the head tube with 20mm of travel. We developed this technology in partnership with McLaren Applied Technologies and 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 and comfort in one fell swoop. And of all the bikes that we've tested with our Rolling Efficiency Model the Roubaix outperforms anything on the market.
