•Significantly lighter than comparable-level wheelsets, the Ruby rides on easy-rolling Axis 1.0 wheels that are quick and strong.
•Designed and engineered with Women’s Endurance Geometry that improves stability and handling, giving you confident control when climbing and descending, while also putting you in a comfortable position. Result? A lifetime of efficient, comfortable riding.
To optimize fit, pedaling efficiency, comfort and control, Specialized tailors the geometry and components on their women’s bikes to fit women's bodies. Size-specific frame tubes decrease weight and increase compliance. Short top tubes provide a better reach for shorter arms and torsos, while greater stand-over clearance allows for easy on/off. And, for a truly custom feel, Specialized includes small-diameter grips, shallow-drop handlebars, and women's saddles that make every ride fun and comfortable.
This frame utilizes Specialized’s advanced FACT IS (Integrated Structure) construction method. By separating the frame into four main parts — the front triangle, seat tube/bottom bracket, chainstays and seatstays — Specialized is able to optimize each carbon piece for its specific purpose and create a structure that’s incredibly light, impeccably stiff and impressively strong.
