Road star Emma Pooley rides the Specialized women-specific designed S-Works Ruby.

No surprises that the Team Specialized rider is fully kitted out with Specialized components, although she does use lighter wheels in certain events.

She must be a candidate for a 26-inch wheel bike given her diminutive height and how little seat set-back she has.

Ultegra rear mech and brakes prove that Shimano?s number two groupset really is cut out for top-level racing.
