2012 Specialized Roubaix SL3 Expert Compact

Thanks to a velvety-smooth and incredibly efficient carbon frame and fork, Specialized's Roubaix SL3 Expert could be the perfect ride. Your two-wheel adventures will be more enjoyable than ever as you reap the benefits of Specialized's back-friendly geometry and Zertz inserts that damp road vibration for a whole new level of road-riding comfort. The Roubaix also boasts super-speedy DT Swiss wheels and a Shimano 20-speed Ultegra component group with a compact crankset that provides premium shifting and the low gears to summit any hill in record time. Plus, you can't beat the Specialized carbon seatpost, Body Geometry seat and ergonomic handlebars for outstanding comfort and fun.

Features and Information

  • View the geometry chart.
  • This frame utilizes Specialized’s advanced FACT IS (Integrated Structure) construction method. By separating the frame into four main parts — the front triangle, seat tube/bottom bracket, chainstays and seatstays — Specialized is able to optimize each carbon piece for its specific purpose and create a structure that’s incredibly light, impeccably stiff and impressively strong.
  • Specialized's Zertz viscoelastic inserts damp vibrations for a velvety smooth ride so you stay comfortable and refreshed mile after mile.
  • Choose your preferred pedals (sold separately) from our wide selection.

      I've rode this bike for 2 yrs now, and I still love it. It rides so smooth, fast and most important of all, a very comfotable ride. I occasionally have back problems, but after a 25 plus mile ride, my lower back pain is very minimal to none. Great price for a top quality bike.

        This is a great bike. Lightweight. Very responsive. Extremely comfortable ride. Staff at my LBS was very helpful and professional. I test rode numerous bikes but always came back to the Roubaix Expert. Well worth the price!!

        I bought this bike last week and took it for test drive on SART from Corona to HB, 60 miles and the bike is very comfort, fast, responsive; now I'm convince I can do longer ride with this bike, I have other bikes before but none is as comfort as this bike. I changed seat, wheels, tires. Stem is adjustable, so I have it more upright; the bike fits me perfect, I'm 5'7 & 52cm bike

        Comments:

        Heard about this bike from my racer friends - I have never had a good road bike (only mountain bikes up to this bike). I asked the racers for the best all around bike - and they said get the Roubaix because it is comfortable, fast, versatile and a long term investment. All turned out to be true (so far). One downside - some other bikers are anti-Specialized bikes (too mass market I guess). That's their problem.[...]

          I am using the Roubaix for commuting as well as club rides. It's the most comfortable, stable, lightest, best handling bike I've ever had. The black carbon is beautiful. Love it!

            2nd season completed, a few centuries, some on some rougher roads, and the bike is holding up great! New Conti tires by mid season, but otherwise flawless ride! I'm 6'0" and 200lb, love to climb, and no problems with this frame. Previous comment on broken fork- must have cracked some how, and not noticed.....
