Description

With a mix of comfort, performance, & value, the Ruby is the perfect steed for exploring roads that are, well, less than ideal.

The frame is among the lightest that we've ever made, & it's been constructed from our superlative FACT 9r carbon fiber. Its stiffness levels are also excellent, & compared to the SL4 iteration of yesteryear, you'll experience a whole new, faster, & more efficient geometry. Through some engineering sorcery, however, we've managed to keep the same fit, feel, & 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, & essentially, it's a piston in the head tube with 20mm of travel. We developed this technology in partnership with McLaren Applied Technologies, & 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, & comfort in one fell swoop. & of all the bikes that we've tested with our Rolling Efficiency Model, the new Ruby outperforms anything on the market.

Topping off the lightweight frame & Future Shock technology is a predominantly Shimano component spec, hassle-free Tektro Spyre mechanical disc brakes, & women's-specific touch points that are sure to keep you rolling, worry-free, for many miles to come.
