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.

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.
