Specialized Ruby Expert Udi2 Womens Road Bike 2019 – Gloss/Acid Kiwi/Black
Erases any shadow of a doubt that smoother is indeed faster.
If you thought that a bike had to be jarring and unforgiving in order to be fast we apologize in advance for bursting your bubble.
The more comfortable you are in fact the faster you'll go.
And if you need proof of this look no further than our Ruby Expert with Ultegra Di2.
Its revolutionary design erases any shadow of a doubt that smoother is indeed faster.
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 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 engineering sorcery 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 awesome components like Shimano Ultegra Di2 shifting 8070 hydraulic disc brakes Roval C38 Disc carbon wheels and a host of comfortable women's-specific components.
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 Ultegra Di2 with hydraulic disc brakes not only offers exceptionally smooth and crisp shifts but it also provides incredible stopping power and modulation.
Yep that's right—carbon wheels on an Expert-level bike.
The Roval C38 Disc carbon wheels bring performance to the masses.
They're lightweight durable and ready for just about anything.
