If you want to chew up the miles when the roads aren’t quite ideal, you want a women’s road bike that mixes comfort, performance and value like the Ruby.

Thanks to our superlative FACT 9r carbon fibre, it’s one of the lightest frames we’ve ever built. It’s also incredibly stiff, and compared to the previous SL4 you’ll find a brand new geometry that’s even faster and more efficient. Despite the tweaks, by using a little engineering wizardry we’ve kept the same fit, feel and position that we know everyone loved about the geometry of the SL4.

By now though you’re probably wondering what the thing up front that looks suspiciously like suspension is.

To us, it’s the Future Shock, a piston in the head tube giving 20mm of travel. We developed this bit of tech in co-operation with McLaren Applied Technologies, and in a nutshell it allows us to deliver a whole raft of benefits to performance when it comes to vertical compliance.

Without delving too deeply into the physics of it all, we found that by prioritising vertical compliance instead of fork splay we could give a smoother, faster and more comfortable ride with just one little change. Compared with all the other bikes we’ve tested with our Rolling Efficiency Model, the Ruby is streets ahead.

Adding the last touches to the Future Shock technology and the lightweight frame, we’ve included Shimano components with hassle-free Tektro Spyre mechanical disc brakes, plus women’s-specific touch points so you can stay on the road without a care in the world–for as many miles as you like.

  • Featuring our Rider-First Engineered™ design that ensures every frame size has the same legendary responsiveness and smooth ride quality that you'd expect from a Ruby. The FACT 9r 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.
