Show Description

"A true enthusiast’s bike, the Fenix combines 2 of Ridley's very successful frames: the Excalibur (comfortable and light) and the 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.

  • Fenix C HM carbon frame packs lots of strength into a lightweight frame, using both 30 and 24-ton high modulus unidirectional carbon fibre (one square centimetre of carbon withstands pressure up to 24 and 30 tons).
  • Flat-sectioned seatstays add comfort to the rigid frame, dissipating and absorbing road vibration.
  • 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.
  • Shimano Ultegra 11-speed drivetrain allows smooth power transfer from the rider to the road.
  • Asymmetric chainstay achieves superior bottom bracket and chainstay stiffness without compromising crankset interference.
  • Speed is handled by hydraulic disc brakes.
  • Cable routing is clean, aero, and compatible with mechanical and electronic shifting. Mechanical cable stopper can be removed for conversion to electronic shifting.
  • DT Swiss R24 wheelset gets your power to the road.
  • 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 their own branded component line, 4ZA."
