Hitting a sweet spot between performance and value, Specialized's Ruby SL4 Sport - Rim Brake was designed to thrive on long rides where the roads are, well, less than ideal. It features a wonderful FACT 9r carbon fiber frame that's been outfitted with Shimano's durable and precise 105 components, an ultra-stiff Praxis crankset, and smooth-rolling Axis Elite wheels. Of course, you'll also benefit from their proprietary technology that's been tested and proven on the cobbles of Northern France, like the vibration-absorbing Zertz inserts throughout the frame and fork and a compact race design that's specifically designed for women. So go ahead and push it to the limits—this Ruby will make sure that you don't feel the burn.
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.
