HOME > BIKES > ROAD > 2018 RUBY SPORT

The Ruby Sport is the machine for you if you're looking for a bike that'll thrill you on rides across varied terrain, without stinging you in the wallet so badly you can't afford a slice of cake at the mid-way cafe stop.

The frame is just about the lightest we've ever made, which has a lot to do with the super-light, super-stiff FACT 9r carbon fibre we built it out of. The frame is also constructed around a more efficient and speedy geometry. Lucky for you fans of the 2018 Ruby's predecessor, the new model retains all the great characteristics of the SL4 model of yesteryear, including the fit, feel and position of the SL4 Women's Endurance Geometry.

The Future Shock technology that features at the front of the Ruby is a new development that we put together while working alongside motorsport tech masterminds, McLaren Applied Technologies. Put simply, the tech functions like a spring or piston, providing 20mm of travel above the head tube, so bumps in the road are absorbed, without compromising the way the bike handles by lengthening the wheelbase (which is what happens with traditional fork-based suspension systems most often found on mountain bikes). The result is a smoother, faster and more efficient bike that knocked spots off the competition when we tested it against our Rolling Efficiency Model.

To do the bike justice, we've specced it with Shimano 105, for smooth and reliable shifting; low-maintenance mechanical disc brakes; Axis Sport Disc wheels, for that bombproof, easy-rolling speed; plus a women's-specific saddle as the final cherry on the cake.

  • 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 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.

    First road bike and I'm loving it - so manageable and lightweight. Female specific geometry really works for me. Purchased after buying an Ariel for commuting. And everyone loves the glittery paintwork
