The Roubion is designed for one purpose: to give you the best ride possible. 27.5” wheels and 150mm of travel strike a perfect balance between gobbling up bumps and not gobbling up your legs on the climb back up.
The geometry isn’t a radical departure from the previous Roubion — it didn’t need to be. The head tube is a little slacker. The bottom bracket is a little lower. The chainstays are still short, but the ride is still amazing.
The Roubion C R takes the exact same build kit as the AL R and upgrades you to a carbon frame. Who cares about carbon? Well, if shaving off almost 2.5 lbs and getting better power transfer sounds appealing, then upgrading to carbon is a must. Carbon construction allows engineers to put more material where they need it and less where they don’t. Less weight + better power transfer = less effort to get to the top… and more energy on the way down.
