The perfect balance of incredible performance and comfort while coming in at a great price is what the Roubaix sport was built for. Take advantage of those rough roads less travelled.
Made form FACT 9r carbon fibre the frame is is stiffer than our charts have ever seen, lighter than previous models and looking at the numbers from years past you'll definitely notice a difference in speed and efficiency. Plus using our vast knowledge from the RETUL database we were able to keep the same comfort and feel of the much-loved SL4, plus keeping it a consistent fit across the board.
Up front is the Future Shock, it's our bar-raising new technology, developed hand-in-hand with McLaren Applied Technologies with the aim of keeping efficiency and handling consistent, no matter how rough the road is. What we came up with was a piston or spring in the head tube, offering up to 20mm of travel, addressing performance in vertical compliance rather than working with traditional suspension systems. In the past, fork splay would be the go-to method of smoothing out rough surfaces, but that means stretching the wheelbase which loosens up the handling and compromises pace and efficiency. By focussing on vertical compliance and sending road feedback up through the headtube, the bike essentially stays the same shape, maintaining its exquisite handling and ensuring that the Roubaix outperforms any of its competitors.
The Roubaix Sport comes with 11-speed shifting from Shimano 105 and braking from Tektro Spyre Mechanical disc brakes. Keeping you rolling smoothly are DT R470 wheels wrapped in Our brilliant Turbo Pro 28mm Tyres.
- Features our Rider-First Engineeredâ„¢ design that ensures every frame size has the same legendary responsiveness and smooth ride quality that you'd expect from a Roubaix. The FACT 9r frameset holds its own with our highest-end carbon offerings, with the ideal blend of light overall weight and targeted stiffness, while the all-new Future Shock "suspension" system at the cockpit delivers a revolutionary degree of comfort and control.
- DT R470 Disc wheels feature reliable, sealed cartridge hubs, and 24 front and rear spokes that keeps weight low and durability high.
- Shimano's 105 shifting and hydraulic disc brakes ensure reliable shifting and stopping power in a variety of conditions.
