SPECIALIZED - RUZE
NEW FOR 2018
More traction not only increases confidence, but it also takes fun to another level—and with the Ruze, you get just that. It's specifically designed from the ground up to give women of all skill levels an advantage on the trail, earning it the nickname of "the ultimate trail hardtail."
Our 6Fattie Wheel/Tire System is the hallmark feature on the Ruze, as it puts out more traction, more floatation, and better handling without sacrificing anything to efficiency on climbs. And to solidify itself as a proper trail machine, this iteration of the Ruze places a focus on blending durability with performance. To do so, we spec'd it with strong alloy rims, a bulletproof one-by drivetrain with plenty of hammering and climbing ability, and a SR Suntour fork with 80mm of travel.
Of course, you also get a host of women's-specific components, plus our Women's Trail Geometry with an ultra-low standover height. It has everything you need to ride harder and go faster, and nothing that you don't.
