Ridley Noah SL40 Road Bicycle - Unisex


See available road bikes


Stiff, TDF stage-winner, light and ridiculously quick, the Noah SL40 is anything but slow. A meticulously crafted carbon fibre frame slices through the air, with aero shaped tubes and a cut-out fork to reduce drag. Next-level details make the difference between fast and blistering fast: dimpled frame surfaces, F-Split fork that pulls air away from the wheel, and dropped seatstays for decreased exposure. Fulcrum Quattro wheels are proven all-rounders, at home rallying crit corners or establishing KOMs. Ridley gave it the Shimano® Ultegra 11-speed groupset with a gear range for sprint-line finishes or gradient heavy suffer-fests. Precise and powerful Ultegra brakes provide performance and nuanced modulation. And the aluminum 4ZA Cirrus components won't get flexy when sprinting hard and channeling your inner-Greipel.
