Ridley 525 Ultegra Carbon Road Bike - 2019

525. That is the number of victories Eddy Merckx achieved in his career. This bike is a tribute to Merckx's insatiable hunger to win.

Our 525 is ready for his next victory. This bike is the optimal balance between weight, aerodynamics and comfort. It is fast and snappy and made to go fast. It is the favourite weapon of the pros of the UCI ProTour Team Flanders - Baloise.

The front of the bike is stiff and aerodynamic due to the integrated cabling and aero handlebars, while the seat stays with their recognisable curves ensure maximum ride comfort. This results in a performance-oriented and responsive bike that guarantees a smooth ride.

Built for performance

The 525 frame set was designed with aerodynamic performance in mind by using aero optimized tube shapes, a fork crown integrated into the down tube and a single piece aero cockpit. The aero seat post is held in place by an internal seat post clamp. The high-end carbon fiber lay-up used in this frame brings the weight down despite all aerodynamic features.

Built for performance
Faster and cleaner

The fully integrated cable routing has multiple benefits. The biggest performance benefit comes from improved aerodynamics, because there are no cables disturbing the airflow. Moreover, the cables are hidden and tucked away, so they don’t interfere with accessories like handlebar bags. Lastly, it makes for a beautiful, clean cockpit.

Faster and cleaner
Perfectly balanced
The 525 is fast and feisty. And it is perfectly balanced. At the front of the bike, the focus is on stiffness and aerodynamics, in part due to the aero handlebars with integrated cable routing. The S-shaped rear fork, on the other hand, provides extra comfort during long rides. For the frame, we use Ultra High Modulus Carbon: extremely stiff carbon for optimal performance.
Perfectly balanced
Optimal power transfer

The distinctive s-curved seat tubes of Eddy Merckx improve comfort and compliance while ensuring optimal power transfer and stiffness. This seat tube design is characteristic of Eddy Merckx bikes, contributing to their unique look and feel.
