Does it feel like the roads are wearing you out before you can wear yourself out We felt like that once, but we've done something about it, and that something comes in the form of the Ruby Expert.

Compared with the Ruby SL4, the wildly-popular predecessor to the 2018 version, you'll find geometry that's faster, more comfortable and more efficient. These gains are built into a frame that's one of the lightest we've ever put together, thanks largely to our brilliant FACT 10r carbon fibre.

That FACT 10r carbon fibre also means the frame's stiffness is off the charts, but fear not, we haven't thrown the baby out with the bathwater thanks to a little magic from our engineers we can give you the same fit, position and feel that everybody loved about the SL4's Women's Endurance Geometry.

One of our other little bits of magic is of course that suspension thing up at the front, something we like to call the Future Shock.

Developed with McLaren Applied Technologies, this piston inside the head tube gives 20mm of travel, which in turn gives the ride a whole bunch of performance gains making every ride on the Ruby both smoother and faster.

Simply put, we discovered that focusing purely on vertical compliance instead of fork flex, we could make the ride smoother and more speedy, as well as more comfortable, with just this one change. And of all the bikes we've put through testing with our Rolling Efficiency Model, this new Ruby is in a class of its own.

Finishing it off, we used a fantastic set of components hand-picked for whatever the road throws at you. To that end, the Expert has Shimano Ultegra 8000 mechanical shifting, strong 8020 hydraulic disc brakes and a host of other women's specific components, all sat on a strong pair of low profile Roval SLX 24 wheels.

  • 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 the lightest possible weight, 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.
