Specialized Roubaix Pro Tire

Specialized's Roubaix Pro Tire is built for riders in search of speed, comfort, and handling.

    Comments:

    Swapped out the OEMs on my Sport Roubaix after a 1000 miles or so, the duel sizing is definitely an upgrade to the ride on lesser quality road surfaces. They seem to wear similar to the original Specialized skins the bike was outfitted with from the factory. Didn't notice any weight or rolling resistance penalty at all, in fact they seem lighter than the OEMs.

    This is my favorite all-round tire right now--I even like it better than Schwalbe and Continental tires costing nearly twice as much. More tire, less money = Win.

      Had a lot of problems with flats on my wide rim road rims (HED Ardennes+) on Conti, Michelin, and Challenge tires. These have been great - roll almost as fast as the Pro4 Service Course, but much much more durable. 800 miles on them on pretty terrible roads, one flat, lots of life left.

          I have gone through two sets of these tires and have had flats. Everytime it was because of something picked up in the road. It really is unfortunate the Specialized makes such an inferior tire. I have a 2008 Roubaix Expert Triple that came with the "Pro" series tires, you'd think Specialized would put a top quality tire on this bike. After one flat I bought another set of these tires, only to have another flat a few weeks later. I switched back to a tire that I used in the past and loved them--Continental Ultra GatorSkins.
