Specialized Roubaix 2013: named after Paris-Roubaix, “the queen of the classics”, the famous classic race over the cobbles, Specialized’s endurance bike was designed to soak up the worst of the bumps through its innovative Zerts inserts.

The Zerts are essentially a damper placed in the rear stays and the forks that absorb road vibration. Specialized Roubaix is specifically designed for the cobbled classics in Europe and is good for bad road surfaces, cobbled roads, and long-distance endurance rides (i.e. century rides).

UCI WorldTour teams Saxo Bank-Tinkoff Bank, Omega Pharma-Quick Step and Astana use Specialized Roubaix in the Paris-Roubaix race. This year (2012), Omega Pharma-Quick Step’s Belgian rider Tom Boonen won the classic for the 4th time, and he has equaled the record of another Belgian, legendary Roger De Vlaeminck. Also in 2010, Fabian Cancellara of Switzerland won Paris-Roubaix riding a Specialized Roubaix.
