Description

Show Description

With its light, layered carbon fibre frame, the Fenix SL 40 is a responsive, comfortable ride that blurs the line between race bike and endurance bike. Detour onto back roads, and the Fenix's geometry soaks up vibration and smooths out washboard. When descending, the flattened chainstays and tire clearance (up to 30C) offer a compliant ride without sacrificing race-ready stiffness. DT Swiss E 1800 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 R8000 drivetrain that balances performance and reliability. When reviewing the Fenix SL 40 Disc in Italy, Matthew Pioro from Canadian Cycling Magazine was greeted with heavy rain and hail while descending Passo Pordoi. "The Shimano Ultegra R8020 hydraulic disc brakes allowed me to descend in that mess comfortably," he writes. The storm washed out part of the following day’s route, resulting in a longer day in the saddle than he'd expected. "At the end of our detour day, my fatigue was the result of all the pedalling, not from getting rattled by the road," he explains. "I’ve tested a few endurance bikes that feel less race-oriented and less agile in the corners. Not the Fenix."

  • High-modulus carbon fibre frame with diamond-shaped top and head tubes is engineered for comfort, stiffness and performance in all conditions.
  • Slightly raised head tube adds a bit of endurance comfort to an otherwise race-ready fit.
  • Tapered, reinforced head tube shaves grams, aids aggressive handling and provides excellent impact protection.
  • Flattened chainstays and lowered seatstays provide shock absorption for a comfortable, buzz-free ride.
  • Pressfit bottom bracket aids power transfer without adding weight.
  • Frame design allows for tires up to 30mm in width, should you want bigger tires.
  • Carbon fibre fork with carbon steer tube integrates into frame for aerodynamic gains.
  • Internal routing aids aerodynamics while keeping cables silky smooth.
  • Carbon fibre dropouts help cut overall weight, while stainless steel inserts add protection.
  • DT Swiss E 1800 Spline db 23 brings the durability needed for gravel roads at a road racing weight.
  • 25mm Vittoria Zaffiro Pro tires are hard wearing.
  • Shimano 11-speed Ultegra R8000 drivetrain shifts perfectly every time.
  • Shimano Ultegra R8020 hydraulic disc brakes provide great modulation and braking power.
  • Rotor 3D30 crankset is equipped with 52-36T chainrings for versatile gearing options.

  • 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 its frame construction, race technology, tube profiles, and its own branded component line, 4ZA.
