Experience the joy and thrill of road riding with Specialized's Ruby Apex Compact. This high-tech women's-specific ride sports Specialized's super-light and comfortable FACT 8r-carbon frame with a full-carbon fork up front — a stellar setup that gets up to speed effortlessly, handles like a dream and also takes the sting out of rough roads for ride-all-day fun. Plus, this roadster boasts a wide-range 20-speed SRAM Apex drivetrain that shifts like a dream and a hill-flattening compact crankset, too. You'll also love the easy-rolling DT Swiss wheels and Specialized's women's-specific components like the awesome Body Geometry seat.
To optimize fit, pedaling efficiency, comfort and control, Specialized tailors the geometry and components on their women’s bikes to feminine physiques. The frames are engineered with smaller-diameter tubes to decrease weight and increase compliance. Shorter top tubes provide a perfect fit and greater stand-over height on small frames allows for easy on/off. And, for a truly custom feel, Specialized includes small-diameter grips, narrow handlebars and women's saddles that make every ride more fun and comfortable than you could ever imagine.
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.
Specialized's Zertz viscoelastic inserts damp vibrations for a velvety smooth ride so you stay comfortable and refreshed mile after mile.
