Who said that performance and comfort don't mix? It sure wasn't us because our Ruby Elite combines the two in one seamless unprecedented package.
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 a host of components that blur the lines between steadfast reliability and outright performance like Shimano 105 11-speed shifting powerful RS505 hydraulic disc brakes strong DT R470 wheels and a women's-specific saddle.
