Whether you're just getting into cyclocross or exploring the road less traveled, the Specialized CruX Sport E5 is the perfect bike to help you get out there and get after it. Specialized designed it around a durable E5 Premium Aluminum frame and FACT carbon fork that are equal parts lightweight, rugged, and responsive. For the build, it take a no-nonsense approach to performance, utilizing a mix of components from Shimano and Praxis, so you'll benefit from a durability-first design when the terrain gets rough. Further along these lines, you'll find powerful hydraulic disc brakes and Tracer Sport tires that were hand-selected for their all-condition abilities. So start practicing your barrier hops, because this bike will be ready to go just as soon as you are.

'Cross is notorious for being hard on equipment. Mud, rain, snow, crashes— they all take their toll. That's why with the CruX Sport, Specialized took their FACT 11r carbon frameset and spec'd it with Shimano's reliable, yet affordable, 105 groupset. Beginning with the frame, they implemented their Rider-First Engineered frame technology into the new frame. Using size-specific tubes and layups, the CruX features the same ride characteristics across the size range. Not only this, but Rider First-Engineered technology also allowed us to significantly drop the frameset weight—coming in at a scant 900 grams for a 56cm—over 400 grams lighter than the previous frameset. A light, stiff frame though isn't useful in a cross race if it isn't compliant, which is why the CruX meshes stiffness and compliance in all the right places. They also lowered the seat collar by two centimeters, allowing for more exposed seatpost and therefore cushion from big hits. Cyclocross races are often won in the corners and over the barriers, and the CruX geometry takes this into account. When hopping off to clear the barriers, the easy-to-shoulder top tube, with a large opening to the front triangle and flat bottom, is smooth and comfortable. The CruX geometry also features a low bottom bracket, to help with stability in hard corners and off camber sections, as well as a sharp front end to help initiate corners regardless of the terrain. With maximum mud shedding ability in mind, the CruX has eight-millimeters of clearance on all sides of a 33mm tire, providing plenty of clearance in even the worst conditions. After all, it's great to have a light weight bike, but if it's covered in 10 pounds of mud, frame weight is irrelevant. The carbon frame and Shimano 105 groupset is completed with Shimano hydraulic disc brakes and Axis Sport Disc wheels to get you on the 'cross course or explore that dirt road you've been meaning to check out. - Specialized's FACT 11r carbon frame features a race-ready 'cross geometry, and comes equipped with thru-axles, 142mm rear spacing, and takes advantage of their highest quality carbon production methods in order to create a bike that's as responsive as it is lightweight. - The internally routed S-Works FACT carbon disc fork features a thru-axle design that increases steering response and rider input for the tight turns and the all-out efforts 'cross demands. - Shimano shifters, derailleurs, and brakes deliver reliable shifting and superb braking, so you can focus on the race ahead—not on your gear.

Who said that performance and comfort don't mix? It sure wasn't us, because our Ruby Elite combines the two in one seamless, unprecedented package. The frame is among the lightest that we've ever made, and it's been constructed from our superlative FACT 10r carbon fiber. Its stiffness levels are also off the charts, and compared to the SL4 iteration of yesteryear, you'll experience a whole new, faster, and more efficient geometry. Through some engineering sorcery, however, we've managed to keep the same fit, feel, and position that we've all come to love from the SL4's Women's Endurance Geometry. Of course, you're probably thinking, "get on to the suspension thing up front." We call it Future Shock, and essentially, it's a piston in the head tube with 20mm of travel. We developed this technology in partnership with McLaren Applied Technologies, and the result of this are a host of drastic performance improvements, namely in the vertical compliance department. Without giving a physics lecture, we found that focusing on vertical compliance, instead of fork splay, meant that we could improve smoothness, speed, and comfort in one fell swoop. And of all the bikes that we've tested with our Rolling Efficiency Model, the new Ruby outperforms anything on the market. Lastly, we spec'd it with a host of components that blur the lines between steadfast reliability and outright performance, like Shimano 105 11-speed shifting, powerful RS505 hydraulic disc brakes, strong DT R470 wheels, and a women's-specific saddle. - Featuring our Rider-First Engineered design that ensures every frame size has the same legendary responsiveness and smooth ride quality that you'd expect from a Ruby. The FACT 10r frameset is exceptional in every way, offering the ideal blend of light overall weight and targeted stiffness. Meanwhile, the all-new Future Shock "suspension" system at the cockpit delivers a revolutionary degree of comfort and control. - The Ruby Disc fork is built from our extraordinary FACT carbon fiber for supreme stiffness, strength, and reactivity, while a thru-axle design only stands to bolster all of the above. - Comes equipped with a 25lbs spring installed (color: black, weight: medium), and also includes both 13lbs (color: blue, weight: soft) and 40lbs (color: yellow, weight: firm) springs that can be installed to match the terrain you're riding.

We all benefit from comfort, but all too often, it comes at the expense of performance. Not anymore. With Specialized's Ruby Comp, you get next-level comfort from a design that's nothing short of revolutionary. The women's endurance geometry frame is among the lightest that they've ever made, and it's been constructed from superlative FACT 10r carbon fiber. Its stiffness levels are also off the charts, and you'll experience a fast and efficient geometry. The FACT carbon fork features a suspension system called Future Shock, which consists of a piston in the head tube that delivers 20mm of travel. The result of this system are a host of drastic performance improvements, namely in the vertical compliance department. Rolling beneath the cutting-edge frame are DT R460 Disc wheels that provide the a balance of weight and rigidity. Shimano's Ultegra drivetrain delivers shifts that are precise as it gets. Lastly, they spec'd it with awesome components, like Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, a plush CG-R carbon seatpost and a women's-specific Ruby saddle.
