Specialized 2014 Roubaix SL4 Comp – Compact – $3169.99

Roubaix SL4 Comp

Looking to ride their way to a new level of fitness, ability, and endurance, these enthusiast road riders participate in weekend club rides, Gran Fondos, and occasional races, where they can compete to improve their personal best. Wanting a high-performance bike that’s both stable and efficient, Roubaix riders value ride quality and progressive technology above all.


Smoother is faster. The more comfortable and less fatigued you are at the end of a 4 hour ride, the stronger you’ll be. Like shocks on a race car, the Zertz vibration damping inserts on the Roubaix SL4 help absorb road impact and keep power planted firmly on the road – couple that with a FACT carbon 8r frame and it’s still plenty stiff to thrash around in a sprint. Just ask four time Paris-Roubaix champion Tom Boonen

  • FACT 8r carbon frame with Endurance Road Geometry, Zertz and tapered headtube; paired with a full carbon monocoque fork for the perfect blend of stiffness, compliance and light weight
  • Espoir Elite 25c tires with BlackBelt puncture protection allow for a smooth, fast, and confident ride
  • Specialized Roubaix Tape w/ 2.5 gel pads makes for an incredibly comfortable front-end, on any terrain, for any length of ride
  • New Shimano Ultegra 11-speed mechanical drivetrain delivers light-action, precision shifting in a lightweight system, creating one of the finer parts kits available
  • Romin Comp Gel saddle, with hollow Cr-Mo rails, delivers the same ergonomically designed, scientifically-proven Body Geometry features that allow riders to deliver power in high-performance positions
