Ridley Fenix SL40 Road Bicycle - Unisex


See available road bikes


With its light, layered carbon fibre frame, the Fenix SL40 is a responsive, comfortable ride that blurs the line between race bike and endurance bike. On high-spirited KOM attempts or finishing sprints, the tapered head tube and massive pressfit BB create a direct transfer between you and the road. Detour onto backroads, and the Fenix's endurance roots come to the fore. When descending, the flattened chainstays and tire clearance (up to 28mm) offer a compliant ride without sacrificing race-ready stiffness. Mavic Ksyrium wheels are proven performers – durable, adventurous, responsive when you need extra punch, and they won't weigh you down on climbs. Equipped with one of the best gruppos around, it gets a workhorse 11-speed Shimano Ultegra shift setup that balances performance and reliability. When coming in hot to technical hairpins, the Ultegra brakes produce confidence-inspiring catch-free power and nuanced modulation.
