Specialized Ruby Elite Womens Road Bike 2018
Specialized's Ruby Elite Womens Road Bike is perfect for those riders looking for a high-performance frame that allows you to remain comfortable, however long the ride.
One of Specialized's lightest frames, thanks to the FACT 10r carbon fibre construction, and exceptionally stiff, for an efficient and responsive ride, so you'll be spinning up those hills and smashing sprints in your quickest times yet. The FACT carbon fork is extremely strong, stiff and reactive, and come in a thru-axle design.
The Women's Endurance Geometry improves stability for improved confidence when climbing and descending, whilst allowing you to stay comfortable in a slightly less aggressive position. Rider-First Engineered™ design means that, no matter what size frame you require, you will reap the same benefits in terms of responsiveness.
Future Shock suspension is a new Specialized technology that enhances vertical compliance and, ultimately, performance. This is a piston in the head tube providing 20mm of travel and comes installed with a 25lb spring, with the option for switching this out for either the 13lb or 40lb springs that are included, to match the specific terrain of your ride.
You'll be able to depend on Shimano's 105 components for smooth shifting, and when you're descending at speed, the RS505 hydraulic disc brakes will give you the confidence that you can stop as and when you require, even in the wet. The DT Swiss R470 Disc wheelset is strong and reliable and a great mid-level, all round option. Finished with Specialized Turbo Pro clincher tyres with a 28mm width, you can be sure of great cushioning and comfort and excellent Black Belt protection against punctures.
- Specialized's Rider-First Engineered™ design ensures every frame size has the same legendary responsiveness and smooth ride quality
