Show Description

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, equally at home rallying crit corners or establishing KOMs. Ridley gave it the Shimano® Ultegra R8000 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 channelling your inner Greipel.

  • Wind tunnel-tested frame blends multiple carbon fibre grades for stiffness, lightness and durability.
  • Droplet-shaped tubes and F-Surface coating increases laminar flow by 4.16%.
  • Unique textured frame surface on drag-heavy locations brings aero gains.
  • Aggressive race-ready fit results in an aero yet comfortable riding position.
  • Tapered headtube shaves grams while improving stiffness.
  • Lowered seatstays aid aerodynamics.
  • Pressfit BB increases power transfer without adding weight.
  • Internal routing aids aerodynamics while keeping cables silky smooth.
  • F-Split carbon fibre fork features cut-outs that act as aerofoils to drag wind away from wheels for reduced drag.
  • Fulcrum Racing Quattro wheelset is ultra-stiff and svelte.
  • Vittoria Zaffiro Pro 25mm tires are stellar all-arounders.
  • Shimano Ultegra R8000 11-speed groupset.
  • Rotor 3D30 crank is light and features 52-36T chainrings.
  • Shimano Ultegra R8000 brakes feel as good as they perform.
  • Cirrus and Cirrus Pro saddle, seatpost, stem and other components are light and stiff.
  • 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.
