Description

Show Description

Described as "the fastest bike in the world," Ridley backs up their modest claim with weight-cutting innovations, wind-cheating tricks, and seconds-shaving technology. Making the difference between a podium finish and being left in the pack, the split in the Ridley F-fork channels air away from the rotating wheels and spokes to diminish turbulence, reducing drag by an estimated 7.4%. To make it easier for the air to flow around the bike's profile, Ridley has designed droplet-shaped tubes with strategically placed textured surfaces to keep the wind travelling close where the angles are severe. A clean, aero profile is enhanced with internal cable routing, and don't be shy about dropping your elbows low to further advance the Noah's anti-drag mission. When paired with the Noah's race-ready, ultra-light full carbon frame, Fulcrum's agile Racing Quattro wheelset makes manoeuvring the bike effortless and instantaneous.

  • 50-40-30 ton high-modulus unidirectional carbon frame is built from the ground up, using a blend of differing strength carbon fibres, from 50 to 30-ton high-modulus unidirectional fibres. A higher ton rating means stronger carbon, and stronger carbon means a stiffer and lighter frame.
  • F-surface technology strategically places textured surfacing in areas where the air slips off the frame, to smooth overall airflow and reduce drag by approximately 4.1%.
  • Droplet shaped, aero-optimizing tubes to make it easier for the airstream to closely follow the profile of the bike.
  • Shimano Ultegra 11 speed drivetrain delivers smooth power transfer from rider to road to make an exceptionally efficient ride.
  • Splits in the F-split fork act as aerofoils and help to pull air away from the wheels (and spokes) reducing turbulence and drag.
  • Integrated seat mast increases stiffness, reduces weight, and adds to the bike's aero profile.
  • Reinforced chainstays, top tube junctions, and seat mast to increase strength and power transfer.
  • Oversized tapered headtube increases the contact area of the lower headset bearing to add rigidity and dissipate vibrations.
  • Pressfit 30 bottom bracket allows the use of wider down tube and bottom bracket shell, providing maximum power output.
  • RotoR 3DF Semi-Compact Cranks are designed to be extremely stiff and lightweight; a necessary combination for both sprinting and climbing.
  • Racing Quattro wheelset is entirely hand-assembled by a specialized Fulcrum technician, with every nuance double checked via electronic instrumentation.
  • Internal cable routing is clean, aero, and compatible with mechanical and electronic shifting. Mechanical cable stopper can be removed for conversion to electronic shifting.
  • Pedals sold separately.
  • 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.
