Specialized's Ruby Compact balances comfort with speed and stability. The secret is Specialized's super-light, comfortable FACT 9r-carbon frame and fork that get up to speed effortlessly, handle like a dream, and take the sting out of rough roads for ride-all-day fun. The Ruby is decked out with a wide-range Shimano Sora drivetrain so you can fly up the climbs. Quick-rolling Axis wheels wrapped in Specialized tires handle nimbly and inspire confidence as you climb, descend, and power through turns. Body Geometry components from Specialized round out this bike, offering incredible all-day comfort.
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.
