Show Description

A full-blown carbon race bike with endurance bike tendencies. Featuring featherweight carbon fibre, the Liz C50 combines a unique diamond-shaped frame with intentional flex areas to make it responsive under power and forgiving on rough terrain. With performance at the forefront, Ridley worked with professional female riders to produce a unique women's frame. The slightly curved toptube helps lower standover height and shorten the reach, allowing a confident position for aggressively railing crits or cruising fondos. Equipped with Shimano's excellent 11-speed 105 R7000 groupset and a host of proven 4ZA aluminum components, the Liz C50 takes your ride to the next level.

  • 24-ton high modulus unidirectional carbon fibre packs lots of strength into a lightweight frame.
  • Flat-sectioned seat stays add comfort to the rigid frame, dissipating and absorbing road vibrations.
  • Diamond tube-shaping has proven strength with high impact resistance, making very strong, very stiff head, top and down tubes.
  • Oversized tapered head tube increases front-end stiffness and steering precision.
  • 4ZA Stratos saddle, seatpost, stem and handlebars are race-ready.
  • Shimano 105 R7000 11-speed drivetrain allows smooth power transfer from rider to road.
  • Shimano RS510 crankset with 50/34 chainrings is at home climbing or sprinting.
  • Asymmetric chainstay achieves superior bottom bracket and chainstay stiffness without compromising crankset interference.
  • Narrow seat stays improve comfort by soaking up vibrations on rough roads.
  • Speed is handled by 4ZA brakes.
  • Cable routing is clean, aero and compatible with mechanical and electronic shifting. Mechanical cable stopper can be removed for conversion to electronic shifting.
  • 4ZA RC31 wheels offers all-around performance.
  • Pedals sold separately.
  • 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.
