Details

Smoother is faster when it comes to the Roubaix SL4 Expert. With the engineered compliance and responsiveness of its SL4 FACT 10r carbon frame and fork, along with the legendary performance of the mechanical Shimano Ultegra build kit, it's a bike that will ensure you stay fresher, longer—no matter how long your ride may be.

•Specialized's high-modulus SL4 FACT 10r carbon frame with tapered head tube and compact race design provides incredible responsiveness, while the engineered compliance and Zertz inserts smooth out vibrations and road chatter.
•The Specialized FACT carbon fork comes in three different sizes with varying steerer diameters that optimize stiffness for that size, while also providing excellent steering response. Road chatter is also absorbed through the Zertz elastomer inserts.
•The incredibly smooth-running Fulcrum Racing S-19 Light wheels transfer all your power to the road. They're built with butted spokes to be tough enough to handle even the roughest roads and still come back for more.

Specialized's FACT (Functional Advanced Composite Technology) carbon frames and components are made from the finest materials and utilize a unique manufacturing process that creates amazing durability, awesome efficiency and super-low weight.

    Comments:

    I searched diligently for a new bike after deciding to get back into cycling after many years off. I read articles, test road models, talked to riders and shop owners and was consistently pointed toward the Roubaix. I ended up getting a 54cm SL4 Expert in the satin carbon / blue and could not be happier. It is unreal how much bikes have changed. My local LBS made the choice easy and set me up perfectly. The one drawback is the saddle comes standard in 143mm. I need a 155mm saddle and wish you could trade out for the correct size. Overall, I am extremely pleased with the bike and the components it came with. The money was well spent!

      I got this bike in January 2014 to update my '09 Roubaix with a triple ring. It has a stiffer bottom bracket, lighter, easier Shimano Ultegra compact gearing -- much better when pounding uphill on fast club rides. I have 1000 miles on it. No complaints. My advice: Ask for a discount or trade up the wheels. The Fulcrum wheels that came with mine were cheaply made AND had defective welds.

          I'm 71, 5'11"and 240 lbs. I ride 30 to 40 miles every other day year round in Colorado and Arizona. I had a 2000 LeMond triple crank that doesn't even come close to competing with this bike on comfort or easy of handling. The SL4 is a fantastic bike for me at my age and shape which isn't a bikers physique!
