With a mix of comfort, performance, and 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, and it’s been constructed from superlative FACT 9r carbon fibre. Its stiffness levels are also excellent, 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.

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