Smoother is faster. And more fun. For women riders who want to cover long distances in control and comfort, and want their bikes to be quick and efficient, the Ruby offers high performance for centuries and the freedom of the open road.
WHAT Viscoelastic dampers integrated into the
Ruby seatstays and fork.
WHY Absorb road vibration to minimize fatigue
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 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.
Women’s FACT IS Carbon
WHAT FACT IS carbon frame with new women’s
Endurance Road geometry, layup, and
WHY Maximizes control and stability,
while minimizing fatigue.
HOW The new frame layup uses an oversized
down tube (with a flare at the head
tube), BB, and chainstays for a total of
15% more torsional and 13% more BB
stiffness, while the triangulated seatstays
increase vertical compliance by 9%.
