The Roubaix provides you with the tools you need to explore the road less travelled, while keeping room in your wallet for a mid-ride brew. The light weight frame has been constructed from FACT 9r 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 engineering sorcery, 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 Engineered™ construction.

Future Shock is essentially 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. Lastly, the Roubaix comes equipped with hassle-free mechanical disc brakes that’ll see you spending more time riding and zero time bleeding your brakes, a Shimano Tiagra drivetrain, and Axis Sport Disc wheels, ensuring that you’ll keep rolling without trouble, mile after mile.
