Tom Boonen Edition

The S-Works Roubaix Boonen Frameset delivers our lightest frame and smoothest possible ride, plus a paint job that commemorates Tom Boonen’s four Paris-Roubaix victories. The design includes four wing-tip feathers to represent each win, and guardian wings that’ll hopefully carry him safely to a fifth win on the cobbles.

The frame is one of the lightest that we’ve ever made, and it’s been constructed from our top-tier FACT 11r carbon fiber. Its stiffness levels are also off the charts, and compared to the SL4 iteration of yesteryear, you’ll experience a whole new, faster, and more efficient geometry. Through some engineering sorcery, however, we’ve managed to keep the same fit, feel, and position that we’ve all come to love from the SL4, and kept it consistent throughout the size-range due to our Rider-First Engineered™ construction.

Of course, you’re probably thinking, “get on to the suspension thing up front.” We call it Future Shock, and essentially, it’s a piston in the head tube with 20mm of travel. We developed this technology in partnership with McLaren Applied Technologies, and the result of this are a host of drastic performance improvements, namely in the vertical compliance department. Without giving a physics lecture, we found that focusing on vertical compliance, instead of fork splay, meant that we could improve smoothness, speed, and comfort in one fell swoop. And of all the bikes that we’ve tested with our Rolling Efficiency Model, the new Roubaix outperforms anything on the market.
