Ridley Liz CR2 Road Bicycle - Women's


See available road bikes


Developed in collaboration with female pro riders, this sleek frame gives recreational and competitive riders a lightweight option that climbs like a beast and accelerates effortlessly. Its punchy performance is, in part, due to its exceptional strength-to-weight ratio. The high-modulus carbon is able to withstand 24 to 30 tons of pressure, giving you the confidence to push as hard as you want on a frame that weighs just over 1kg. A slightly curved top tube lowers the stand-over height and shortens up the reach to better fit female proportions. Flat-sectioned seatstays and asymmetric chainstays absorb road buzz, and a tapered head tube improves stiffness for more precise handling. Added bonus: the Liz CR2 provides a solid frame foundation that is upgrade-ready in the event you ever want to build up the ultimate women's road and race bike.

  • Ridley Liz carbon frame packs lots of strength into a lightweight frame, using both 30 and 24-ton high-modulus unidirectional carbon fibre (1 square centimetre of carbon withstands pressure up to 24 and 30 tons). An unpainted size small frame weighs in at 1150g
  • Flat-sectioned seatstays add comfort to the rigid frame, dissipating and absorbing road vibrations
  • Diamond tube-shaping has proven strength with high impact resistance, making a very strong, very stiff head, top, and down tube
  • Oversized tapered head tube increases front end stiffness and steering precision
  • Pressfit 30 bottom bracket allows the use of wider down tube and bottom bracket shell, providing maximum power output
  • 105 group set delivers the quality and reliability you expect from Shimano® components
  • Cable routing is clean, aero, and compatible with mechanical and electronic shifting. Mechanical cable stopper can be removed for conversion to electronic shifting
  • Velocity is handled by Tektro caliper brakes
  • Alex Race 28 wheelset
  • Continental Ultra tires have race-oriented tread
  • 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 its own branded component line, 4ZA
