Lowdown: 2017 Specialized Roubaix
The newest iteration of the Specialized Roubaix is a game changer. It's the lightest frame that Specialized has ever built, an unexpected title for a bike built to perform on the rugged terrain after which it was named. It also features a groundbreaking vibration damping system that is all but guaranteed to make big waves as it rolls onto the international market this fall. And as you'd expect from any new Specialized product, the bike features an improved aerodynamic profile over previous generations. Developed in close collaboration with McLaren Applied Technologies, the new Roubaix lays claim to some lofty performance advantages over the many other "endurance" category road bikes on the market.
