PRODUCT OVERVIEW
About the Fenix range
Our Fenix is the quintessential “all-round” bike. It offers the perfect blend between performance, weight, strength, stiffness and especially comfort for long days in the saddle. Its unique diamond shape tubing creates reinforced edges for a robust frame with increased impact-resistance.

For these reasons, it is the top choice for our Lotto-Soudal pro men when tackling the Spring Classics. In fact, the women’s team races with it all year long. It is lightweight and stiff with built-in comfort to handle the roughest of terrains.

While this bike expertly handles top competition, it is also perfectly suited for the part-time racer or recreational rider in terms of performance, comfort and cost. It’s the optimal bike for tackling your next Gran Fondo or extended tour through the Flemish Ardennes.

Compatible with both mechanical and electronic shifting.

About the Fenix SL
The Fenix SL is almost completely modelled after our Fenix SLX design for that ultimate “all-round” bike feel. The only differences are that this frameset is built for caliper brakes and its high-modulus carbon fibre layup consists of 30/24-ton. The Fenix SL is the only bike you need for all jobs. Go from tackling the climbs and hitting the cobbles to competing for town line sprints.

Also available as a frameset.
FEATURES
DIAMOND SHAPE: The Fenix is the quintessential “all-round” bike. It offers the perfect blend of performance, weight, strength, stiffness and comfort for long days in the saddle. Its unique diamond shape tubing creates reinforced edges for a robust frame with increased impact-resistance.

For these reasons, it is the top choice for our Lotto-Soudal pros when tackling the Spring Classics. In fact, the women’s team races with it all year long. It is lightweight and stiff with built-in comfort to handle the roughest of terrains. It even smooths out cobblestones.

Its slightly longer rear triangle increases the bike’s wheelbase for added stability and comfort. It also allows for larger tires up to 28mm for further increased comfort and versatility. Now you know how André Greipel can easily remain seated up the arduous Oude Kwaremont cobbled climb.

While this bike expertly handles top competition, it is also perfectly suited for the recreational rider in terms of performance, comfort and cost. It’s the optimal bike for tackling your next Gran Fondo or a tour through the Flemish Ardennes.

RIDLEY CARBON: Here at Ridley, we set extremely high standards for ourselves. And it all starts with our choice of raw materials. We use only the best quality carbon available, sourced from Toray. They are the world’s leading carbon manufacturer, supplying mainly to the aerospace industry. The grades of high-modulus carbon we use vary from our most pliable 24-ton, which gives the frame flex and comfort, to 60-ton which is our stiffest.

When developing our carbon products, we strictly follow the principle of “form follows function”…down to the last detail. When creating a frame, we first analyse the exact function it needs to serve – how it will be used, how it needs to feel in every possible scenario. Next we design the shape of the frame, taking extreme care of the exact curves, lines and varying thickness of each tube. Lastly is the carbon layup. Combining the grades of carbons to get the exact feel of the bike is like piecing together the most intricate 3-D jigsaw puzzle. It usually involves hundreds of pieces of carbon, assembled in a few dozen layers.

Once this puzzle is complete, what you have is a piece of machinery that is perfectly tuned for its task at hand. Every single one of our carbon bikes exemplifies this extreme attention to detail.
