As past seasons of racing have played out, the Ridley Fenix has become well known for both its durability and higher performance. So what’s better than to build the Fenix out with a new 2015 Shimano Ultegra 11 speed road component group. While the Fulcrum Racing 7 clincher wheels complete that perfect Ridley all-rounder, ready to deal with whatever’s out there.
The historical Tour of Flanders and Paris-Roubaix are two mythical bike races to say the least, both of which make even the strongest riders hold their breath. With horrible tarmac, and fierce weather conditions, along with grueling cobble sections mated to brutally steep climbs put enormous pressure on everything. As Ridley knows all to well with their home located in Flanders, they have set out to create a road bike that is set up to the task of these epic all day long rides. With a Ridley CR1 setup and their own 4ZA parts that were developed to provide both best-in-class durability and Ridley’s astounding performance.
The Fenix has oversized sharp edged tubing, which guarantees that that you will feel a high level of stiffness along with being extremely durable and strong. You will also notice the flat sections in the saddle on the Fenix have seatstays that will absorb road vibrations to give you a higher amount of comfort and increased stability on rougher tarmac.
The Fenix arrives at your door complete with the new Shimano 11-speed package, that generously comes with a whole load of technology being incorporated from the latest Dura Ace groupset… trickle down technology!
