Ridley Aura SLA60 - Women's



Show Description

A benchmark in cost-effective performance, the Aura has the latest tech in aluminum frame construction. Retaining the stiffness-to-weight ratio that distinguished the original Helium, the Aura SLA uses exceptionally thin-walled tubing sections with double-pass welding on the head and seat tubes for a frame that's both tough and light. Worried about the bone-shattering stiffness that used to characterize aluminum? Don't be. Thin, strong seat stays, a svelte seatpost and the beautiful carbon fibre fork keep it comfortable and responsive, like carbon bikes twice its price. A sweet sprinkling of Shimano and 4ZA components makes this ride a special one. A Shimano Tiagra groupset creates a classy build, while 4ZA RC30 wheels provide everyday performance.

  • Frame uses 6000-series aluminum with double-pass welding to produce a light, stiff and durable frame.
  • 1100g frame weight is on par with carbon fibre bikes.
  • Tapered, reinforced head tube shaves grams, aids aggressive handling and provides excellent impact protection.
  • Ultra-thin chainstays provide shock absorption for a comfortable, buzz-free ride.
  • Full carbon fibre fork with carbon steerer keeps the weight low.
  • Internal routing aids aerodynamics while keeping cables silky smooth.
  • 4ZA RC30 wheels with 25mm Vittoria Zaffiro Pro tires.
  • Shimano Tiagra 10-speed groupset.
  • Compact Shimano Tiagra crankset is at home climbing or sprinting.
  • 4ZA brakes provide solid performance.
  • 4ZA Stratos handlebars, seatpost, stem and other components are durable performers.
  • 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.
