Tired of rough roads wearing you out? So are we and that’s why made the Ruby Expert. 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 6800 shifting hydraulic disc brakes and a women’s-specific saddle.The FACT 10r frameset is exceptional in every way offering the ideal blend of light overall weight and targeted stiffness. Meanwhile the all-new Future Shock “suspension” system at the cockpit delivers a revolutionary degree of comfort and control.A Ruby Disc fork is built from our extraordinary FACT carbon fibre for supreme stiffness strength and reactivity while a thru-axle design only stands to bolster all of the above.Shimano Ultegra hydraulic disc brakes serve up tremendous stopping power and incredible modulation.Comes equipped with a 25lbs spring installed (color: black weight: medium) and also includes both 13lbs (color: blue weight: soft) and 40lbs (color: yellow weight: firm) springs that can be installed to match the terrain you’re riding.Technical SpecificationsFRAME FACT 10r carbon Women’s Endurance Geometry Rider-First Engineeredâ„¢ 12x142mm thru-axle Future Shock suspension 20mm of travelFORK Ruby disc FACT 11r carbon 12x100mm thru-axleFRONT WHEEL DT R470 Disc Pro thru-axle 2Bliss ReadyREAR WHEEL DT R470 Disc Pro thru-axle 2Bliss ReadyINNER TUBES 700×20/28mm 48mm Presta valveFRONT TYRE Turbo Pro 700x26mm 60TPI folding bead BlackBelt protectionREAR TYRE Turbo Pro 700x26mm 60TPI folding bead BlackBelt protectionCRANKSET Shimano Ultegra CompactCHAINRINGS 50/34TBOTTOM BRACKET Threaded SRAM GXPSHIFT LEVERS Shimano ST-RS685 11-speedFRONT DERAILLEUR Shimano Ultegra braze-onREAR DERAILLEUR Shimano Ultegra long cage 11-speedCASSETTE Shimano Ultegra 11-speed 11-32tCHAIN Shimano Ultegra 11-speedFRONT BRAKE Shimano 805 Flat-Mount HYD resin pads w/finsREAR BRAKE Shimano 805 Flat-Mount HYD resin pads w/finsHANDLEBARS Specialized Hover Expert Alloy 15mm rise 125mm drop 75mm reachTAPE S-Wrap Roubaix w/stickygelSTEM Specialized Pro SL alloy 4-boltSADDLE Ruby Expert Adaptive Edge design hollow titanium rails 155mmSEATPOST Specialized CG-R FACT carbon single bolt 27.2mm
