We all dream of the perfect road. We’d all love our rides to be filled with fast, sweeping lanes and the smoothest asphalt underneath our tyres. Unfortunately, turning this dream into a reality is a near-impossible task. There’s always going to be bumps in the road (literally) and that’s why we set about designing our breath-taking Roubaix Elite.

Our FACT 10r carbon fibre frame is ultra-light and combined with high levels of stiffness it delivers a superfast performance. It’s a big improvement on the SL4, yet we’ve worked our magic to maintain the same fit, comfort and position that riders of previous models loved so much. With Rider-First Engineered principles applied to tube sizing, the Roubaix provides the same great experience across the entire size range.

We’ll get onto the suspension now; where the Roubaix really stands out from the crowd. We’ve named our technology Future Shock and, essentially, it’s a piston in the head tube providing 20mm of travel. Working alongside McLaren Applied Technologies, we switched our focus from fork splay to vertical compliance and reaped the rewards. We tested a wide range of bikes with our Rolling Efficiency Model and the Roubaix outperforms its competitors with a super smooth and fast performance.

The Roubaix Elite has a spec featuring 105 11-speed mechanical shifting, RS hydraulic disc brakes and DT R470 Disc wheels cased with our Turbo Pro 28mm tyres.

  • Featuring 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 10r frameset holds its own with our high-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.
  • A Roubaix Disc fork is built from our FACT carbon fiber for supreme stiffness, strength, and reactivity, while a thru-axle design only stands to bolster all of the above.
  • Shimano 105 shifting gives you crisp, precise, and reliable shifts. The system is renowned for its durability, performing in adverse conditions with the batting an eyelash…if shifters had eyelashes, that is.
