Specialized Ruby Disc Womens Road Bike 2019 – Gloss/UV Lilac/Holo Reflective
Looking for a bike to explore the road less traveled
Looking for a bike to explore the road less traveled while also keeping room in your wallet for a mid-ride cappuccino? Look no further than the Ruby Sport.
The frame is among the lightest that we've ever made and it's been constructed from our superlative FACT 9r carbon fibre.
Its stiffness levels are also off the charts 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 Tiagra shifting powerful RS505 hydraulic disc brakes strong Axis Sport Disc wheels and a women's-specific saddle.
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 9r 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 RS505 hydraulic disc brakes deliver plenty of stopping power along with the superior modulation that hydraulic disc brakes are known for.
With Shimano Tiagra taking the reins on shifting you'll experience crisp shifts for many miles to come.
