The Roubaix is possibly one of Specialized's most popular bikes. It has the carbon fiber and pizazz of a full-on race bike, along with the silk-road feel of a classic steel racer. The Roubaix was built for Europe’s cobblestone classics, offering a smooth ride over varying terrain.

When the Roubaix was first debuted in 2004, the design included a longer wheelbase, more stack, and less reach than the already popular Tarmac. Over time, the SL2, SL3, and SL4 models were added, all being lighter and including a disc brake option. In 2017, Specialized debuted the FutureShock, with 20mm of vertical damping. In 2020, they added extensive aero shaping and a seatpost junction, allowing rearward flex.
S-Works is what designates the pro-level carbon-fiber blend and build kit for the premier-level Roubaix. The S-Works Roubaix is what sponsored racers ride at the Paris-Roubaix, Ghent-Wevelgem, and de Ronde races. When Specialized releases a new iteration, all the changes filter down the line, so the 2019 Roubaix Pro, Elite, Comp, and Sport all have the same frame features.
