Specialized Ruby Comp Womens Road Bike 2019 – Gloss /Sunset/Acid Kiwi/Black
Next-level comfort from a design that's nothing short of revolutionary.
We all benefit from comfort but all too often it comes at the expense of performance.
Not anymore though.
With the Ruby Comp you get next-level comfort from a design that's nothing short of revolutionary.
The frame is among the lightest that we've ever made and it's been constructed from our superlative FACT 10r carbon fibre.
Its stiffness levels are excellent and compared to the SL4 iteration of yesteryear you'll experience a whole new faster and more efficient geometry.
Through some advanced dedicated engineering however we've managed to keep the same fit feel and position that we've all come to love from the SL4's Women's Endurance Geometry.
Of course you're probably thinking 'get on to the suspension thing up front.' We call it Future Shock and essentially it's a piston in the head tube with 20mm of travel.
We developed this technology in partnership with McLaren Applied Technologies and the result of this are a host of drastic performance improvements namely in the vertical compliance department.
Without giving a physics lecture we found that focusing on vertical compliance instead of fork splay meant that we could improve smoothness speed and comfort in one fell swoop.
And of all the bikes that we've tested with our Rolling Efficiency Model the new Ruby outperforms anything on the market.
Lastly we spec'd it with a host of components that blur the lines between steadfast reliability and outright performance like Shimano Ultegra 11-speed shifting powerful Shimano Ultegra hydraulic disc brakes svelte and sturdy DT R470 Disc wheels and a women's-specific saddle that provides all-day comfort.
Featuring our Rider-First Engineered™ design that ensures every frame size has the same legendary responsiveness and smooth ride quality that you'd expect from a Ruby.
The FACT 10r frameset holds its own with our highest-end carbon offerings with the ideal blend of light overall weight and targeted stiffness while the all-new Future Shock 'suspension' system at the cockpit delivers a revolutionary degree of comfort and control.
Shimano's no-fuss Ultegra shifting with hydraulic disc brakes provides precise shifting and plenty of stopping power.
DT R470 Disc wheels feature reliable sealed cartridge hubs and 24 front and rear spokes that keeps weight low and durability high.
