With six wins at Paris-Roubaix, our Roubaix has proven that Smoother is Faster. Until this moment, however, smooth has admittedly come with some compromises. But not anymore. The all-new Roubaix Comp now delivers compliance without compromise by introducing a radical new Future Shock 1.5 that gives you more control on rough roads, a new Pavé seatpost that creates our most balanced Roubaix to date, aerodynamics that equal the Tarmac, and a Rider-First Engineered frame that’s shed some serious weight. Is it still comfortable? Sure, but don’t call it a comfort bike, because performance was behind every engineering decision we made. This is the new Roubaix. - The new frame delivers compliance without compromise via the perfect balance of aerodynamics, light overall weight via a FACT 10r carbon construction, compliance, and Rider-First Engineering. With tube shapes that were born in our FreeFoil Shape Library and validated in the Win Tunnel, the new Roubaix’s as aero as the Tarmac SL6. Meanwhile, to ensure the weight and ride quality, we turned to a Rider-First Engineered design to deliver optimal stiffness and compliance across all sizes, from 44 to 64cm. Of course, the frame has shed some serious weight in the process. And to prep you for your own Hell of the North, we’ve made room for 33mm tires. - To go along with the new frame, we’ve also developed a totally-new S-Works Pavé seatpost. Not only is it the first compliant seatpost that’s also aerodynamic, it does so without any additional weight or finicky contraptions. Starting with the same D-shape design found on the Tarmac, we took its compliance a step further by building additional flex into the upper and developing a new drop-clamp design in the frame. This provides plenty of compliance, while staying perfectly balanced with the front-end, so you get a smooth, balanced ride no matter how rough the road. - With 20mm of rough-road-taming travel, the Future Shock 1.5 not only delivers a smoother, more comfortable ride, but it also reduces fatigue and increases speed over harsh terrain. The new Smooth Boot, meanwhile, enhances the aesthetics to bring a clean transition from the head tube to the stem.
Climbs, corners, flat-out sprints—the Specialized Allez Sprint Comp does it all. The Allez Sprint is just as capable as a crit-racing weapon as it is for an everyday road steed. But even better, it performs all of the above at a price that's affordable for any racer's budget. At the heart of the Allez Sprint is D'Aluisio Smartweld Sprint Technology, which strategically places more welding material where it's needed, resulting in an aluminum bike that's more compliant and considerably stiffer. Drawing inspiration from the Rider-First Engineered Tarmac, this frame has a unique down tube, bottom bracket shell, and head tube, plus fork sizes that correspond to frame size. This ensures uniform performance across the entire size run. To make sure that every single watt you produce gets transferred to the road, it has short chainstays that create an extremely stiff and rigid rear triangle. But it goes beyond just pure rigidity, as the hydroformed tube shapes have also been aerodynamically optimized to slice through the wind, while also having been designed with built-in compliance. For the build, Specialized spec'd it with Shimano 105 shifting, DT R460 alloy wheels, and a comfortable Body Geometry Toupé saddle. With all of these features, the Allez Sprint Comp redefines the potential of an alloy bike, so much so, that you'll forget you're not riding carbon. - E5 Premium Aluminum frame with Allez D'Aluisio Smartweld Sprint Technology refocuses weld locations, allowing for more material to be placed where it's needed for increased stiffness and compliance where you really need it. - Top-tier S-Works FACT carbon fiber fork provides incredible stiffness and front end steering response, while also efficiently absorbing road chatter. - The Venge FACT carbon fiber seatpost acts as a stiff, aerodynamic perch for your saddle.
The Libre has taken the drop bar world by storm. Its fast, light, and utilitarian characteristics make it the ultimate drop bar bike. Pavement, gravel, and singletrack are no match for this carbon beauty. Pulling from the Rove and Sutra lineage, the Libre and Libre DL feature wheel size interchangeability, competitive spec, and the ability to carry as much gear as you can imagine. Stealthy lines and eye-catching paint jobs round out one of the hottest adventure bikes available. The 2020 Libre comes packed with everything you need for the ultimate adventure. A gorgeous Kona Race Light Carbon frame is stocked with a SRAM Rival 1 11-speed drivetrain, brakes, and shifters, and a Kona Verso full carbon flat mount disc fork. The Libre also features WTB KOM Light Team i25 700c rims and WTB Riddler 700 x 45c tires for fast-rolling efficiency across any terrain.
