Specialized have known for years that smoother is indeed faster, but until the S-Works Ruby with SRAM eTap came along, we had no idea just how right they were. The frame is among the lightest that Specialized has ever made, constructed from top-end FACT 11r carbon fiber. Its stiffness levels are also off the charts, and compared to the SL4 iteration of yesteryear, you'll experience a whole new, faster, and more efficient womens geometry. Also incorporated is the Future Shock, essentially a piston in the head tube with 20mm of travel. Specialized developed this technology in partnership with McLaren Applied Technologies, and the result of this are a host of drastic performance improvements in smoothness, speed, and comfort. Lastly, it's spec'd with awesome components, like SRAM's revolutionary eTap shifting, hydraulic disc brakes, the new CLX 32 Disc wheels, and a whole host women's-specific comfort features.
- The S-Works FACT 11r frameset is Specialized's highest quality carbon frame, offering 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.
- An S-Works Ruby Disc fork is built from top-end FACT 11r carbon fiber for supreme stiffness, strength, and reactivity, while a thru-axle design only stands to bolster all of the above.
- SRAM Red® eTap 11-speed shifters provide a glimpse into the future of shifting, and double as brake levers for the SRAM Red hydraulic disc brakes. They communicate wirelessly with the front and rear derailleurs for a ground-breaking level of performance, while offering new, intuitive shift capabilities.
