Rainbows Over Roubaix: The Bike

Lotte Kopecky won the 2024 Paris Roubaix Femmes classic on April 6. Paris Roubaix is a testing ground for bicycles given the difficulty and damaging nature of the cobbled sections. Here, we present a gallery of her bicycle, the Tarmac SL8 by Specialized.

Instead of the World Champ’s colorway we’ve seen her on all year, Lotte Kopecky chose a blacked out Tarmac SL8 with a special Paris-Roubaix build. She chose Roval Rapide CLXII wheels with S-Works Mondo 32mm tires. Mondos are renowned for their industry leading combination of durability and efficiency and when paired with the super quick Rapide wheels, that feature hooked rims and almost double UCI impact standards, it proved the winning combo over the cobbles. Not just fast and bullet proof, but SD Worx Protime as a team suffered zero flat tires.

Lotte also chose round bars with extra padding to take the edge off the cobbles and a SRAM RED AXS 1X group vs the 2X she ran at Flanders.
