Ridley Liz SL40 Disc Bicycle - Women's


See available road bikes


With its light, layered carbon fibre frame, the Liz SL 40 Disc is a responsive, comfortable ride that blurs the line between race bike and endurance bike. Detour onto back roads, and the Liz's geometry soaks up vibrations and smooths out washboard. When descending, the flattened chainstays and tire clearance (up to 28C) 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. The Shimano Ultegra R8020 hydraulic disc brakes are designed to help you maintain in control in any weather.
