Ridley Orion C10 Bicycle - Unisex


See available road bikes


Using their pedal response and long-distance know-how, Ridley packed as much as budget would allow into this 24-ton, high modulus carbon fibre package. Being able to withstand 24 tons of pressure per sq. cm makes for a stiff, light frame, which comes in handy when you're stomping to the finish line. An oversized downtube helps you corner precisely, and a reinforced bottom bracket shell optimizes power output for more efficient pedal strokes. Flat-sectioned seatstays and asymmetric chainstays relieve your century ride of road buzz and provide a buffer against the rutted and cobbled surfaces of a spring classic. Shimano's reliable 105 group does the majority of the heavy lifting, rounded out by Ridley's own 4ZA component line.

  • 24-ton high modulus unidirectional carbon frame with stainless steel drop out protection plates. Medium-sized frame weighs in at 1220g when painted
  • Flat-sectioned seatstays add comfort to the rigid frame, dissipating and absorbing road vibrations before they get to your body
  • Shimano 105 components are known for their reliability, durability, and great performance
  • Rear "mono stay" engineered for comfort enhancing vertical compliance and lateral stiffness
  • Continental Ultra tires are race orientated, flexible and protect against punctures to optimize comfort demands and performance
  • Velocity control is handled by Tektro caliper brakes
  • Pedals sold separately
  • Orion 24-ton carbon frame is compatible with mechanical groupsets only
  • Bikes are covered by MEC's Rocksolid Guarantee and Bike Service Agreement. You can bring your bike to any MEC Bike Shop for free adjustments and minor maintenance for a year after purchase
  • Ridley was born in Flanders, Belgium, a region infamous for harsh cycling conditions. Against this backdrop Ridley engineers, tests, and refines their frame construction, race technology, tube profiles, and its own branded component line, 4ZA
