2020 Roubaix Comp Di2
The All-New Roubaix Comp Di2
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.
A few notes on this specific build:
The tires seen in these pictures are not stock, I installed what is probably my all time favorite road/gravel tire - 32c Roubaix Pro 2bliss Ready, with the Transparent sidewall.
The 2bliss Ready setup allows for lower tire pressure to be run, and it feels SO good, especially on chip-seal and gravel roads
The transparent sidewall tires made by Specialized are actually a bit lighter than the non-transparent version, and are just as durable
32c is probably the perfect size for most gravel roads and countryside pavement. Smooth, fast, and fun.
