McLaren collaborates with Specialized for the S-Works Roubaix bicycle

Californian bicycle manufacturers Specialized have teamed up with McLaren to create a $11,500 bicycle. The Specialized McLaren S-Works Roubaix is painted McLaren’s “Heritage Orange” and is a celebration of McLaren’s 50 years of Grand Prix racing.

Made with Specialized’s FACT 11r carbon, it boasts 12×100 and 12×142 thru-axles, along with rear hydraulic cat-mount disc brakes and an S-Works carbon fiber crankset.

Other details include the custom leather bar tape with Heritage Orange stitching and the silver head badge.

The silver hubs are a throwback to the silver wheels found on the McLaren race cars of yesteryear.

McLaren’s data logging software was used to create the Rolling Efficiency Simulator, a separate software used to design this special bike.

Incidentally this isn’t the first collaboration between McLaren and Specialized. The companies have previously united to create the special edition Venge, S-Works Tarmac, and Venge ViAS bikes.
This bike may be impressive to look at but with a price tag of $11,500, it may only tempt serious McLaren fans.
