A little more comfort is never a bad thing except when it slows you down. Fortunately that's not something you need to worry about with the Ruby Comp, which uses a design that's frankly revolutionary to gives you top-shelf comfort on a women's frame that's one of the lightest we've ever put together.

We've created that delightfully light frame by using our very own FACT 10r carbon fibre, which offers amazing stiffness levels into the bargain. It's built around a fresh new geometry that's faster and more efficient than the previous SL4. That's not to say we trashed the much-loved fit and feel of the SL4 model that came before this one though our frame designers made sure to preserve all the characteristics that made the Ruby Comp's predecessor such a firm favourite.

With all these improvements in geometry and efficiency you might be forgiven for missing a cool new toy we've included, a little something we call Future Shock.

Future Shock is essentially a piston inside the head tube that gives the front end 20mm of travel. We developed it in partnership with McLaren Applied Technologies.

This means a boatload of significant performance improvements thanks to the added vertical compliance. By zoning in on that vertical compliance ahead of fork splay we realised we could give you a more smooth ride that's both faster and more comfortable. By placing the suspension above the fork, we ensure that the bike handles just the same, regardless of whether you're cruising over smooth tarmac, or hitting sketchy turns on gravelly back roads.

We did some extensive testing on the Ruby Comp using our Rolling Efficiency Model and found it to be in a different league compared with other similar bikes on the market.

It's topped off with a component spec for top level performance with rock solid reliability. The 11 speed Shimano Ultegra shifting is coupled with solid 8020 hydraulic disc brakes and sleek-but-strong Roval SLX 24 wheels. Perched on top is a women's specific saddle for all-day comfort.

  • Featuring our Rider-First Engineeredâ„¢ design that ensures every frame size has the same legendary responsiveness and smooth ride quality that you'd expect from a Ruby. The FACT 10r frameset is exceptional in every way, offering the ideal blend of light overall weight and targeted stiffness. Meanwhile, the all-new Future Shock "suspension" system at the cockpit delivers a revolutionary degree of comfort and control.
  • The Ruby Disc fork is built from our extraordinary FACT carbon fiber for supreme stiffness, strength, and reactivity, while a thru-axle design only stands to bolster all of the above.
  • Comes equipped with a 25lbs spring installed (color: black, weight: medium), and also includes both 13lbs (color: blue, weight: soft) and 40lbs (color: yellow, weight: firm) springs that can be installed to match the terrain you're riding.
