Ridley Fenix C40 Bicycle - Unisex


See available road bikes


The stately Fenix rises to glory with the combination of two very successful frames, the Excalibur (comfort, lightweight ) and Damocles (sharp-edged design). The Fenix brings the best of both frames to long distance riders and high-level competitors. A high-modulus carbon fibre frame stands up to the cobbled climbs and wild weather of northern Europe. For everyday North American riders, it translates into a deliciously stiff, yet comfortable, frame. Ridley relies on the time-tested strength of sharp-edged, diamond-shaped tubes to add strength to the tube profile. Its strength and rigidity are balanced with flattened seatstays so you're not left vibrating at the end of a long ride. A wide top tube flows into an oversized head tube, creating a seamless transition between comfort and stiffness – a give and take that continues throughout your ride.

Shimano® components, 4ZA RC 30 wheelset, and Continental Ultra Race tires round out the C40 as an excellent gateway bike, with a solid group set and great performance.

  • Frame uses both 30 and 24-ton high modulus unidirectional carbon fibre (one square centimetre of carbon withstands pressure up to 24 and 30 tons)
  • Flat-section seatstays provide vertical flex and lateral stiffness to take the edge off of road vibrations
  • Diamond tube-shaping has proven strength properties with high impact resistance, making for a very strong, and very stiff head, top, and down tube
  • Oversized tapered head tube increases front end stiffness and steering precision
  • Cable routing is clean, aero, and compatible with mechanical and electronic shifting. Mechanical cable stopper can be removed for conversion to electronic shifting
  • Pressfit bottom bracket allows the use of wider down tube and bottom bracket shell, providing maximum power output
  • Full arsenal of classic Shimano 105 Components offer up consistency and durability
  • Wheels have a front spoke count of 28 radial laced, and a rear count of 28 cross laced for maximal power output
  • This model is not equipped with pedals
  • 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 their own branded component line, 4ZA
