Product Details

Specialized Ruby Comp 2019 Women's Road Bike

This Comp version of the Specialized Ruby endurance road bike range is complete with a full carbon frame and fork, Shimano Ultegra 2x11 drivetrain and matching hydraulic brakes!

Shimano Ultegra 8000

Shimano's latest Ultegra 8000 STI 2x11 shifters and gear mechs are even closer to Dura-Ace level in terms of their smooth, slick and precise performance - whisper it but this analogue drivetrain will have you questioning the need to spend more on Di2.

Better still, this 8000 group introduces us to the first pure Ultegra flat mount hydraulic disc brake.

Ruby

Specialized coined the term endurance road bike to describe the game-changing bike they launched in 2004 - the original Roubaix. (Men's version)

Their goal was to create a road bike with engineered-in comfort features that didn't compromise its speed potential.

Specialized really did create a carbon road bike you can ride over cobbles without feeling every bump.

In 2017 Specialized raised the bar by several notches by retiring the Ruby's original Zertz 'jelly' shock absorbers. Instead, compliance is achieved via its lighter weight carbon layup and an all-new Future Shock - that is a 20mm-travel lightweight shock inside the top of the head tube that suspends the rider, not the bike.

Within a few months of it's launch, Cycling Plus reviewers hailed the Future Shock-equipped Specialized Roubaix Comp (which had the same set up)as their 2017 Road Bike of the Year. To put this award in context, the Roubaix was chosen from a long-list of the 25 best road bikes this magazine's most experienced testers had reviewed over the previous year.

Here's how Specialized describe the Ruby Comp

We all benefit from comfort, but all too often, it comes at the expense of performance. Not anymore, though. With the Ruby Comp, you get next-level comfort from a design that's nothing short of revolutionary.

The frame is among the lightest that we've ever made, and it's been constructed from our superlative FACT 10r carbon fibre. Its stiffness levels are excellent, and compared to the SL4 iteration of yesteryear, you'll experience a whole new, faster, and more efficient geometry. Through some advanced, dedicated engineering, however, we've managed to keep the same fit, feel, and position that we've all come to love from the SL4's Women's Endurance Geometry. Of course, you're probably thinking, "get on to the suspension thing up front."

We call it Future Shock, and essentially, it's a piston in the head tube with 20mm of travel. We developed this technology in partnership with McLaren Applied Technologies, and the result of this are a host of drastic performance improvements, namely in the vertical compliance department. Without giving a physics lecture, we found that focusing on vertical compliance, instead of fork splay, meant that we could improve smoothness, speed, and comfort in one fell swoop. And of all the bikes that we've tested with our Rolling Efficiency Model, the new Ruby outperforms anything on the market.

Lastly, we spec'd it with a host of components that blur the lines between steadfast reliability and outright performance, like Shimano Ultegra 11-speed shifting, powerful Shimano Ultegra hydraulic disc brakes, svelte and sturdy DT R470 Disc wheels, and a women's-specific saddle that provides all-day comfort.

  • 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 10r frameset holds its own with our highest-end carbon offerings, with the ideal blend of light overall weight and targeted stiffness, while the all-new Future Shock "suspension" system at the cockpit delivers a revolutionary degree of comfort and control.
  • Shimano's no-fuss Ultegra shifting with hydraulic disc brakes provides precise shifting and plenty of stopping power.
  • DT R470 Disc wheels feature reliable, sealed cartridge hubs, and 24 front and rear spokes that keeps weight low and durability high.
