The Specialized Roubaix provides you with the tools you need to explore the road less traveled, while keeping room in your wallet for a mid-ride brew. The light weight frame has been constructed from our FACT 9r carbon fiber. Its stiffness levels are also off the charts. The front end features Future Shock technology, which is a piston in the head tube with 20mm of travel. Specialized developed this technology in partnership with McLaren Applied Technologies, and the result of this are a host of drastic performance improvements, namely in the vertical compliance department. Specialized found that focusing on vertical compliance, instead of fork splay, meant that they could improve smoothness, speed, and comfort in one fell swoop. Lastly, the Roubaix comes equipped with hassle-free mechanical disc brakes that'll see you spending more time riding and zero time bleeding your brakes, a Shimano Tiagra drivetrain, and Axis Sport Disc wheels, ensuring that you'll keep rolling without trouble, mile after mile. - The FACT 9r carbon frame has all of the road absorbing, engineered compliance that you'd expect from a bike born on the cobbles, yet its compact endurance race design provides all of the responsiveness and performance you need for long days in the saddle. - FACT carbon fork is optimized for stiffness and responsive steering. Shimano Tiagra shifting ensures reliable access to a wide range of gears.
The Rove became an instant classic in the Kona line as soon as it was introduced. Whether it was commuting or gravel racing or whatever you can imagine in-between, what people have done with the Rove has carved a niche. The versatility comes from a combination of relaxed road frame geometry and clearance for wide tires. Throw on the included full-coverage fenders, add a rack and some bottle cages, and you've got more transportation capability and fun in a bike than you do in that hunk of motorized steel in your driveway. The future of road cycling is here — where are you?
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.
Classic looks and the smooth, precise ride of quality steel — the Wheelhouse is Kona's take on the modern disc road bike. The Wheelhouse shares all of the features of Kona's flagship steel road bike, the Roadhouse, in a more affordable parts spec. What it doesn’t miss out on is the Reynolds 853 frame and full carbon fork, flat mount disc brakes, and thru-axles at both ends. You get reliable shifting and capable stopping power through Shimano's Tiagra drivetrain and Tektro mechanical brakes, and Alex aluminum wheels wrapped in Schwalbe Spicer 30c tires provide responsive control. From the Sunday club ride to the gran fondo, the Wheelhouse is your steed.
The Diverge E5 is equipped with everything you need to head to work, take the long way home, and hit some fire roads on the weekend. The Diverge frame will comfortably fit up to 700x42mm tires with plenty of room for mud, too. Weight was a large factor in the development, so Specialized took some design cues from the Roubaix with an E5 Premium Aluminum frame that's plenty light, certainly stiff for hard efforts, and undeniable durable. Specialized opted for a new Open Road Geometry. We know what you're thinking, "it's just another marketing term," but they truly did develop an entirely new geometry. Think of it as a road version of modern trail bike geometry. It provides playful handling and predictable steering for endless dirt skids and mid-corner drifts. The geo features a bottom bracket that's over a half-centimeter lower than the previous Diverge, a slacked-out head tube angle, short chainstays, and a short wheelbase. These changes make for a bike that's not only fun in the dirt, but also performs well on the road. Specialized topped it off with three water bottle mounts and mounts for racks and fenders. So while it's one of the most smile-inducing bikes you'll ever shred fire roads on, it's equally adept at bike packing, commuting, or even a spin to your local brewery. The Diverge E5 Elite frame is topped off with Shimano Claris shifting, hassle-free mechanical disc brakes, and ultra-strong Axis Sport Disc wheels that are cased in fast-rolling Espoir Sport tires.
Specialized is adamant that if you feel like riding somewhere, your bike should be able to take you there with the utmost in confidence. That's why they designed the Dolce Sport to give you all of the performance that you need for the road, with a little extra boost to make riding over rougher terrain a breeze. Making sure that you get the most out of every ride, Specialized built the Dolce around their Women's Endurance Geometry. This ensures that you stay comfortable and confident over any kind of terrain, while also providing a lower standover to make getting on/off the bike, as well as putting a foot down, as easy as can be. You'll also find a whole host of women's-specific components, like the Body Geometry Riva Sport Plus saddle. For the build, they spec'd it with Shimano Sora 9-speed shifting, fast-rolling Axis Sport wheels, and traction-packed Espoir Sport 25mm tires.
