Tired of rough roads wearing you out? We were too. But where we see a problem we can't help ourselves but to make a solution. And in this circumstance that solution takes the shape of 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 an awesome set of components that are hand-selected to endure harsh roads. Along these lines you'll find the Expert outfitted with the likes of Shimano Ultegra 8000 mechanical shifting powerful 8020 hydraulic disc brakes low profile Roval SLX 24 wheels and a host of 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 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.
  • The Ruby Disc fork is built from our extraordinary FACT carbon fiber for the lightest possible weight, supreme stiffness, strength, and reactivity, while a thru-axle design only stands to bolster all of the above.
  • 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.
