Just like we did with the mountain bikes, we put our Park Tools scale through the paces weighing all the 2011 Specialized road bikes, too. Like the MTB post, this one’s all about weights, and we’ve covered the entire line of men’s and women’s road, cyclocross and triathlon bikes.
Above is the totally redesigned Roubaix SL3. This is their top of the line S-Works Di2 model, which I rode for about 31 miles up Ute Pass near Keystone. Most of the bikes weighed are size medium unless otherwise noted, and for this one we had to grab a Large, which weighed in at 15lbs 7oz.
Hit more to see the rest of the line…
2011 Roubaix Pro SL3 Dura-Ace: 15lbs 15oz
It’s also available in Orange/White which looks awesome in person.
2011 Roubaix Expert SL3: 17lbs 8oz
With paint, above, and slightly lighter without paint, below:
2011 Roubaix Elite SL2 Apex: 19lbs 11oz
Don’t let the weight fool you. This is last year’s top of the line frame, and if you built it up with a higher end group, it’d get down around 15lbs easily.
2011 Tarmac S-Works SL3 (SRAM Red): 14lbs 9oz
2011 Tarmac S-Works SL3 (Dura-Ace): 15lbs 3oz
2011 Tarmac Pro SL3 M2 (SRAM Red): 15lbs 5oz
2011 Tarmac Pro SL3 (Dura-Ace): 15lbs 3oz
2011 Tarmac Comp SL2: 18lbs 4oz
2011 Secteur Comp: 20lbs 1oz
2011 Crux Pro Carbon: 18lbs 14oz
2011 Crux Comp Alloy: 20lbs 6oz (size Small)
No, I didn’t weigh the TriCross bikes…no particular reason, just didn’t get to them. The Crux is the new hotness, though.
