The 2017 Specialized Roubaix has new features, including front suspension, to try and prove ‘smoother is faster’.

We take the all new 2017 Specialized Roubaix out for a ride around our southern California Peloton Service Course testing grounds with cameras trained on the 20mm of travel up front – the Future Shock – and the new rear seat post and seat tube design. Come for a ride with us and see how it stacks up against the new Trek Domane.
