The Specialized Ruby Comp is constructed from Speciaized's FACT 10r carbon and is much stiffer than the previous iteration, both faster and more efficient.
The big news is the "front suspension". Speciailzed call it Future Shock, and essentially, it's a piston in the head tube with 20mm of travel. This technology was developed in partnership with McLaren Applied Technologies, and the result of this are a host of drastic performance improvements, namely in the vertical compliance department. Focusing on vertical compliance, instead of fork splay, meant that Specialized could improve smoothness, speed, and comfort in one fell swoop. They use the Future Shock on the Roubaix and on the Diverge as well, and it's been really well received.
The CG-R seatpost sucks up further vibration really effectively, you really notice it at speed.
Hydraulic disc breaks and Ultegra groupset keep the efficiency tip-top. Note the 165 crank length here, making sure the fit is perfect.
