Specialized's Ruby Sport delivers all the benefits of carbon with a component spec that's both lightweight and economical. With its hard-working wheelset and always-reliable Shimano 105 drivetrain, the Ruby will have you out there soaking up the miles comfortably and efficiently. So plan that epic ride, steal two or three hours to explore, or block off your Saturday—the Ruby will make sure you're out there performing confidently, as comfortably as possible.
•Enjoy a comfortable and responsive ride thanks to the lightweight Specialized FACT 9r carbon frame. Featuring Zertz to help reduce road chatter, it provides a responsive and smooth ride with no compromise on performance.
•The agile and responsive Specialized FACT carbon, full-monocoque fork features Zertz inserts to absorb road roughness and give you a smoother ride.
•Significantly lighter than comparable-level wheelsets, the fine Axis 2.0 wheels are a smooth-rolling, great-value package.
•Designed and engineered with Women’s Endurance Geometry that improves stability and handling, giving you confident control when climbing and descending, while also putting you in a comfortable position. Result? A lifetime of efficient, comfortable riding.
To optimize fit, pedaling efficiency, comfort and control, Specialized tailors the geometry and components on their women’s bikes to fit women's bodies. Size-specific frame tubes decrease weight and increase compliance. Short top tubes provide a better reach for shorter arms and torsos, while greater stand-over clearance allows for easy on/off. And, for a truly custom feel, Specialized includes small-diameter grips, shallow-drop handlebars, and women's saddles that make every ride fun and comfortable.
This frame utilizes Specialized’s advanced FACT IS (Integrated Structure) construction method. By separating the frame into four main parts — the front triangle, seat tube/bottom bracket, chainstays and seatstays — Specialized is able to optimize each carbon piece for its specific purpose and create a structure that’s incredibly light, impeccably stiff and impressively strong.

- Confidence Inspiring
- Womens' Specific Geometry
Not given anything to write this review - just in love with this bike and feel it addresses many area of Womens' specific geometry and needs where other brands are totally lacking or call their "unisex" bikes "good enough." This bike is balanced, compliant, comfortable, and just an overall joy to ride for both short and longer trips; mine is my best adventure, fun, and pleasure-seeking buddy!
- Very Responsive
- Super Light And Comfy
- Road Biking
Bought Ruby March 2014 and since then have clocked almost 3000kms! I like everything about it, lightweight, the gears are so smooth to change, is comfortable on those long rides. It great for big hill climbs and is very responsive. I took a tumble one day just after I bought the bike; me and a set of train tracks did not get along! There was no damage to Ruby, so she is durable however, I needed physio on my knee! It was a great investment and can't wipe the smile off my face when I go for a ride! I like the fact that the bike is designed by women for women.
