The Aethos line promises three things: unprecedented weight savings, perfectly-balanced ride quality, and undeniable style. For the Aethos Pro, we threw out the rulebook to create the ride of your life. - The Aethos frame has been designed with the perfect combination of ultimate ride feel, light weight, and style—from accelerating up steep pitches and descending technical descents, to all-day saddle comfort on even the longest coffee rides, the Aethos hits the mark. But how, you ask? By reinventing the traditional road shape found on bikes of the past, we've subtly altered these shapes to deliver massive gains in stiffness and balance, all without affecting weight or durability. Pair that with an entirely new layup and process that we've perfected over multiple decades, and you have the lightest frame out there (585 grams, S-Works, size 56cm). The Aethos is more than just a new bike, it's the first of a new breed. - A featherweight frame is useless without confidence-inspiring ride characteristics, which is why we've developed the Aethos to have the perfect balance of front and rear stiffness combined with exceptional ride quality. By studying the flexing and breathing of carbon fiber, we were able to discover groundbreaking findings about how forces flow through frames. Just a few pedal strokes and you'll realize this sublime ride sets a new standard. - Every detail, from the derailleur hangers to the fork expander plug have been designed with style, weight, and durability in mind—everything in pursuit of the perfect ride.

Specialized has been saying it for years—smoother is faster. But with the all-new S-Works Roubaix Frameset, this philosophy is taken to new, remarkable heights. The frame is the lightest that they've ever made, and it's been constructed from the top-end 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, Specialized has managed to keep the same fit, feel, and position that you've come to love from the SL4. Up front, Specialized has integrated its new Future Shock—it's a piston in the head tube with 20mm of travel. They have developed this technology in partnership with McLaren Applied Technologies, and the results are a host of drastic performance improvements. It focuses on vertical compliance, instead of fork splay, which means they improved smoothness, speed, and comfort in one fell swoop. Plus, Specialized's S-Works CG-R carbon seatpost and FACT 11r carbon fork invite you to add more miles to every ride.
