Innovative, Stable & Responsive
The Ruze is a brand new model from Specialized and it’s also a new concept in the MTB world. What makes the Ruze so new is the wheel size. 650B+ started to appear this year, it has the same outside rim diameter as a normal 650B rim but it’s a lot wider. This allows a much bigger 3” tyre to be fitted. This tyre size offers a few key benefits; the larger air volume gives you more cushioning and it complies better over rough ground. This also helps give you more grip as does the bigger footprint the larger tyre offers.
The Ruze has what Specialize class as their trail geometry, slack head angles and low bottom bracket combined with a short back end. This makes the bike feel very stable and responsive on descents and technical terrain.
As it’s part of the women's Specialized range all the contact points are designed for women. The frame is dropped on the down tube to give a greater stand over height.
