From the freedom of the open road to events like a Gran Fondo, Ruby riders want to cover long distances in control and comfort, but they still demand quick and efficient bikes. These enthusiast road riders want to enjoy every minute on their bikes, so they appreciate the benefits of carbon and a high-quality spec package.
WHAT Ergonomic and size-specific components
including cranks, handlebars, and women’s Body Geometry saddles.
WHY To ensure that female riders get the most comfort and best fit at every contact point.
HOW We spec each bike individually based on frame size, geometry, and fit research. Through pressure mapping tests with Dr. Roger Minkow, we optimize the foam densities
and cutaways in our saddles to relieve soft tissue discomfort.
NEW WOMEN’S FACT
WHAT FACT carbon frame with carbon OSBB and women’s Endurance geometry.
WHY Maximizes control and stability, while minimizing fatigue.
HOW The frame’s FACT Triple Monocoque construction moves joints away from high-stress areas, resulting in fewer redundant materials and a lower overall frame weight (1,000gms for S-Works).
WHAT Viscoelastic dampers integrated into the Ruby seatstays and fork.
WHY Absorb road vibration to minimize fa-
tigue and provide a more comfortable ride.
HOW Vibrations travel from the road through the wheels and up through the frame and fork. Putting dampers at the mid-section of each seatstay
and fork leg helps dissipate these vibrations before they reach the rider’s hands and body.
WHAT One-piece full-carbon fork.
WHY Helps reduce weight and increase stiffness while maintaining a smooth ride.
HOW Full-length EPS mandrel increases layup precision and molding results. By molding in one piece, the dropouts are molded with the fork legs rather than bonded in afterwards.
