i am about to purchase one of them, due to indication of a retul bikefit.
but then came the question:

Which is lighter: Specialized SWorks Amira 56 or SWorks Roubaix 54?

both have almost identical geometry (despite the difference in nominal size)
i guess the Roubaix will be heavier than the Amira...

Same color, same components, same wheels, I'd say Roubaix is slightly heavier since the Zertz inserts add weight since they need to beef up the carbon to maintain strength lost from the holes.

Amira- but get the Roubaix. The satin carbon with white lettering is sick!

although i am a "boy", amira 56 and roubaix 54 have almost identical geometry, that's why i am opting for the lightest (despite the gender indication)

I have no idea how to quantify this but I understand that the woman specific frames are built around a much lighter and less powerful rider than the "mens" bikes. The Amira should be lighter in part due to a lighter and less built up layup of the carbon where as the Roubaix is overbuilt in high stress areas.

The Amira is the female version of the Tarmac, so I would guess that it would be lighter than the Roubaix.
