We are still open and shipping as quickly as possible, however due to the current pandemic and social distancing measures in our warehouse/offices orders are experiencing delays due to overwhelming demand. We are hoping to have all orders shipped within 5 working days of them being placed. Please do not contact us within this time frame unless you need to cancel or amend an order - Our phone lines and emails are exceptionally busy resulting in slower order processing times.

Some people might think you can't get comfort and performance in the same bike
Cyclestore.co.uk carries the full range of Specialized bikes and accessories. To find out more about Specialized bikes and accessories, go to the Specialized Bikes homepage.

Some people might think you cant get comfort and performance in the same bike. But when it comes to the Ruby Elite, those people are to put it simply just plain wrong.

The frame is one of the lightest weve ever built, thanks to the brilliant FACT 10r carbon fibre which also benefits from unmatched stiffness levels. Our engineers devised a geometry thats even more efficient and fast than our previous model, the SL4. Dont worry though, SL4 fans, despite those tweaks to the geo and courtesy of a little engineering wizardry, weve held onto the same position, feel and fit youve come to expect from the SL4 Womens Endurance Geometry.

And speaking of wizardry, one of the best tricks weve come up with this time is that suspension-looking thing youll have noticed up front.

Thats what we call the Future Shock, a piston in the head tube that gives the Ruby 20mm of travel, allowing you to float smoothly and efficiently over rough terrain. Its a tech weve developed in partnership with McLaren Applied Technologies, harnessing their motorsport expertise for some impressive performance gains in vertical compliance.

Without going too far into the mechanics of it all, we discovered that by looking for that vertical compliance instead of fork splay we can add more smoothness and speed as well as comfort in one go.

What this boils down to is that of all the bikes on the market weve tested with our Rolling Efficiency Model, this new Ruby beats them all hands down.

Its built up with components for undeniable performance as well as reliability, with Shimano 105 11-speed shifting, rock solid RS505 hydraulic disc brakes and a womens specific saddle all rolling on strong DT 470 wheels.

  • Featuring our Rider-First Engineeredâ„¢ design that ensures every frame size has the same legendary responsiveness and smooth ride quality that youd 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 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 youre riding.

Note - this bike is an ex demo and is a 51cm frame.
