WHY RUBY?

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:
FACT IS carbon frame with women’s Endurance Road geometry, layup, and tubesets.

WHY:
Maximizes control and stability, while minimizing fatigue.

HOW:
Frame layup uses oversized tubing–down tube (with a flare at the head tube), proprietary uniquely shaped head tube, BB, and chainstays–for outstanding torsional and BB stiffness, while triangulated seatstays increase vertical compliance.


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 optimise the foam densities and cutaways in our saddles to relieve soft tissue discomfort.


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.
