    Strengths:    Comfortable ride.

    Weaknesses:    Both front and back tires blew out on me only after about 1000kms ...not while riding thank goodness!!! One blowout at home, and a week later, the other after riding 70kms ride!!! It blew up in my car while I was driving, I thought it was a gun shot!!! Can't imagine what that would have been like to blowout while on the bike!

    Bottom Line:   
    As someone else said..Specialized makes excellent bikes, but the tires suck!

    Strengths:    Great tire. Rolls fast, corners great, and resists punctures.

    Weaknesses:    None really.

    Bottom Line:   
    I bought these tires after my slicks were giving me persistent flats. I live in Colorado and put these tires on just about mid autumn. September some time. It is not April and they performed great through the winter. I put 800 miles on them over the winter months and there are still looking great. Sure, the back tire is showing signs of wear, but thats to be expected. I weigh over 200lbs and ride on asphalt. I have not had one flat, and that is impressive, mainly because I hit the occasional glass on the edge of the road. Some of the other posts complain that the tires wear out to fast and get flats. Not the case here. Based on how they are wearing I won't have to replace the rear tire until the end of the Summer season. A great tire at a really good price.

    Strengths:    Smooth ride,easy to change,good protection from flats.

    Weaknesses:    You won't pass the 1000 km mark. They just don't last.

    Bottom Line:   
    No major complaints,really. Only 1 flat in one year. But at 700 km they are baked. I still buy them tho,they are cheap and light.

    Strengths:    It does take some of the harshness out of rougher roads. Felt good on downhills

    Weaknesses:    My rear tyre only lasted 600km and blew in a race on a downhill. Pretty scary. Not impressed.

    Bottom Line:   
    completely unexpected blow out on a tyre that had did very few Ks and appeared in good condition. Something fundamentally flawed with them.

    Strengths:    Soft, comfortable ride. This really complements Specialized's carbon fiber Roubaix frame.

    Colors match the Gerolsteiner color scheme.


    Weaknesses:    VERY prone to flats!

    Bottom Line:   
    These tires came stock on my '07 Roubiax Elite. They give a notably softer ride than some other tires I've tried.

    However, like others here, I've found them to be flat-prone. For a long time I thought I was just unlucky with flats, till I replaced one with a Continental Gatorskin. No flats on that tire in over a year, vs. 1-4 flats per year on the Roubaix Pro tires. After reading the other reviews here, I now think my flats are a result of these tires, not just luck. (I ride 1,500 - 3,000 miles a year.)

    This is a shame, as I like the way the tire rides, feels and looks (the blue sidewalls match my bike's color scheme perfectly.)

    Overall I'd say select another tire...

    2010 Roubaix Pro headset/Stem offset?

    Pulled the headset on this bike for the first time tonight and when putting it back together with new bearings, the bolt going through the cap is at an angle and pulls the cap off center. The shim inside the stem is built up on one side but I don't think it slipped a complete 180 during disassembly ... Read More »
