The roll disc steel fork also lends to the frame by providing a great steel reinforced fork that holds the lower parts of the bike in a sturdy and tough grip to give the bike that overall tough build.
Great Nimbus Sport Tire
The 650bx2.3 inches Nimbus sport tire is another interesting feature of the Specialized Roll sport bike. The tires are very stable on both smooth pavements and rough trails. These tires are not just wide, but they have a good grip and are durable as well. It also comes with the reflective feature that enables visibility of rider in the dark.
