More traction gives you more confidence, and with the Specialized Ruze 6Fattie, 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 its nickname as "the ultimate trail hardtail". Its 650b x 3.0-inch tires put out more traction, more flotation, 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, they spec'd it with strong Stout XC 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 Specialized's 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.
