The Roubaix was designed with the goal of creating one of the lightest aluminum race bikes on the market. With a frame weight of 1090g it sits in an elite class of aluminum road bikes. Svelte as it is, the Roubaix doesn't sacrifice strength or stiffness to be a featherweight.
A6-SL super-butted alloy frame removes frame material from low stress areas to decrease frame weight while maintaining frame stiffness
1090g raw frame weight
FC440 full carbon fork with tapered steerer tube
Roubaix Elite uses an anodized finish on the frame that is ultra durable and limits additional weight to the frame
Internal cable routing for clean aesthetics and long cable life
Shaped tubing near the bottom bracket maximize power transfer
Asymmetrical chainstays maintain lateral stiffness and aid in improved pedaling efficiency
