McLaren x Specialized S-Works Roubaix

Despite the fact that they make two very different machines, McLaren and Specialized have a lot in common. They are dedicated to racing, obsessed with engineering, and admired by their peers. Now, with the release of the Specialized S-Works McLaren Roubaix the two have yet another thing in common.

Released in celebration of McLaren’s 50th year in the Grand Prix, this bicycle boasts the marque’s buoyant papaya paint job (dubbed ‘Heritage Orange’ by Specialized), fine leather handlebar tape with yellow stitching, and custom Roval CLX32 wheels. All of these details were chosen to reflect different aspects of McLaren’s vehicles – whether it be their sparkling race wheels, fine leather interiors, or their loud and proud colorways. Underneath all of this styling is a beast of a bicycle. The frame is made from carbon fiber (as are the forks and crankset) and is fitted with both the Shimano Dura Ace Di2 groups and hydraulic disc brakes. Now, if only it could go as fast as a McLaren.
