September 2017 BOM: Specialized Roll

There are two types of personal trainers in the world—drill sergeants and cheerleaders. The Roll Elite is the latter kind, in bicycle form—kindly inspiring you to get out and break a sweat.

With its lightweight alloy frame and fork, eight speeds of “go fast” gearing, stable and wide 650b tires, and powerful Tekgtro hydraulic disc brakes, the Roll does everything in its power to encourage and motivate you to keep fit in comfortable, efficient style.

If you’re looking for excuses to get out of riding in the city, the Roll is designed to address your every complaint. There are always more reasons not to exercise than to actually do it. Now when it comes to getting a ride in, you have no excuses.

There’s a feeling people get when everything just clicks on a ride, and the Specialized Roll Elite is a bike that pulls it all together for you. Take it out on a bike path—dirt or paved—and enjoy the smooth, efficient ride afforded by the lightweight A1 aluminum frame and unique Ground Control Positioning, which puts you in a more upright ride position and provides maximum comfort while keeping your back and neck feeling fine.

Cruise with the confidence and stability of the stable 650b wheels, wrapped in wide, cushy 2.3 inch tires. The hill-topping 24-speed Shimano drivetrain makes sure you enjoy easy spinning up steep hills, and let’s you go fast if the mood strikes.

Ride longer thanks to the Body Geometry science that’s gone into saddles, grips and pedals that keep you comfortable for mile-after-mile.
