Description

The Fenix is a gateway bike for 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. The C50 features a smooth and efficient Shimano 105, 11-speed drivetrain with 105 hydraulic brakes to control your speed.

  • Unidirectional carbon frame packs lots of strength into a lightweight frame, 24-ton high modulus unidirectional carbon fibre (one square centimetre of carbon withstands pressure up to 24 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
  • 4ZA Stratos seat, seatpost, stem and other components are race ready
  • Shimano 105 11-speed drivetrain allows smooth power transfer from rider to road
  • Compact FSA Gossamer Pro crankset is at home climbing or sprinting
  • Asymmetric chainstay achieves superior bottom bracket and chainstay stiffness without compromising crankset interference
  • Speed is handled by Shimano 105 hydraulic brakes
  • Cable routing is clean, aero, and compatible with mechanical and electronic shifting. Mechanical cable stopper can be removed for conversion to electronic shifting
  • Mavic Aksium Disc wheelset combines disc braking ability with the Aksium's all-around performance
  • 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."
