Ridley Fenix Disc 105 Carbon Road Bike - 2023

Are you looking for a high-performance endurance bike, but with a less considerable price? Meet the Fenix Disc: the more affordable sibling of our Fenix SLiC. With this all-round road bike, you’ll be able to tackle anything: from steep climbs and long descends to challenging cobblestones.

The Fenix Disc has similar riding quality and characteristics to the Fenix SLiC. The frame offers internal cable routing for a tidier look, it features the same diamond shaped down tube which provides extra stiffness and durability, and it has the same geometry.

We decided to focus on keeping the retail price down during the development of the Fenix Disc while maintaining the stiffness and ride comfort of the Elite level Fenix SLiC, using other components and a different carbon fiber technology. Due to this modified carbon lay-up, the Fenix Disc frame is only 120 grams heavier than our Fenix SLiC frame

Fenix tubing

The Fenix has a unique tube profile. When you slice the frame lengthwise in half, you'll see a clear distinction between 'comfort' and 'stiffness'.

The oversized headset provides extra stiffness and stability which is instantly felt when accelerating or in its pinpoint handling. The massive downtube increases stiffness while adding strength. Its BB86 bottom bracket and asymmetrical chainstay deliver max power transfer.

The slightly curved top tube becomes narrower and rounder when moving towards the seat tube. Like a leaf spring, it helps absorb bumps in the road. The 27.2mm seatpost filters out vibrations, along with slim, oval-shaped seat stays which provide the perfect balance between stiffness and comfort. Learn about the seat stays HERE.

Ridley Essential Carbon

Our carbon is manufactured by world market leader: Toray. The Japanese manufacturer is leader in every aspect of carbon development and supplier to absolute top world brands in many industries.

For the Essential Series, we use two types of carbon: 24T and 30T. The Elite Series, though, goes one step further and also uses 50T and 60T carbon. With the addition of these two carbons, combined with great effort, we can get the weight extremely low without compromising comfort and stiffness.

The Essential Series directly benefits from the carbon layup knowledge gained through the creation of the Elite Series. This means that our Essential Series reaches that same level of stiffness and comfort, albeit a slight bit heavier due to the use of 24T and 30T only which require more layers compared to 50T and 60T to reach the desired stiffness.

Cables at the front of your bike have a major impact on its aerodynamic performance. On the flipside, getting rid of cables at the front has an aero advantage of a whopping 10 to 14%, depending on the bike.

That's why our R&D department dedicated much time and effort into developing the D-shaped steerer tube, which integrates all front-end cables.

This uniquely shaped steerer tube allows all cables to pass through the handlebar and stem, along the flat front area of the steerer tube and down into the frame. Here the cables are completely hidden from the wind - and from your eye, leaving you with a clean looking bike that wins you speed.

Comfort seatstays

The rear end of a bike is crucial for both adding comfort and maximizing power transfer.

For added comfort, the seatstays are connected lower down on the seat tube. Due to this lower point of contact, both the seat tube and seatpost can more effectively filter out vibrations. In addition, the seatstays can provide more vertical flexibility. All this results in a more comfortable bike ride.

As for winning watts, the shape of the seatstays is oval with the widest side on the horizontal axis. This is key to maximizing power transfer. By placing this wide side horizontally, every watt produced is converted into speed, without losing power on the way to the rear wheel.
