The durability of the Fenix alloy meets the game-changing power of disc brakes. The A20 is built around a triple-butted aluminum frame with diamond-shaped tubing for long-term durability. Its skinny, flat seat stays take the buzz out of gravel or less-than-ideal road surfaces. Like Ridley's carbon fibre models, the tapered head tube shaves grams and boosts stiffness, while the carbon fork improves ride quality. As for those disc brakes? TRP Spyre mechanical calipers hit the sweet spot between all-out power and excellent braking control. Wet, dry or muddy, you can expect consistent performance regardless of conditions. Rounding out this minty build is an assortment of Shimano Tiagra components for solid shifting performance and pro-peloton good looks.

How to measure
- Standover (J)
- Distance from the ground surface to the top of the top tube. Measured at the mid-point of the top tube, or where the rider would be standing when straddling the bike. This measurement should be 2-3cm shorter than your inseam.
