Ridley Helium SLX Disc Ultegra Di2 Carbon Road Bike
The Helium SLX Disc is absolutely the best performance road bike for every challenge you want to take on. Perfect for those who are looking for the ideal machine to conquer climbs like a real pro.
This incredibly lightweight frame weighs in at just 780 grams for size medium. Fully built, this build with Shimano Ultegra R8170 Di2 and Merlin carbon wheels is an incredible 7kg.
The Helium is incredibly stiff, which is why Thomas De Gendt, AKA Breakaway King master of one minute 500W blasts, repeatedly races it to great success. The ultra-thin seat stays provide comfort without sacrificing a single watt. Thanks to the ingenious F-Steerer Technology, that allows for integrated cable routing, you gain 15 watts without even having to pedal.
Ridley Helium bikes are the very best all-round road bikes for the most demanding cyclists. These high-performance machines are incredibly stiff and durable yet ultra-light to dance up impossibly steep climbs. They also handle like a dream when flying at top speed on challenging descents. This is what makes them frame favourite for pro cyclists.
While their classic, round tubing may deliver the best balance of weight vs stiffness and reactivity vs comfort, it surely doesn't help them to stand out from the crowd. What instead earns them their insanely high performance marks in every bike test are their sublime riding characteristics. In a nutshell, this bike instantly lifts the cycling level of every rider in every way.
Ridley Elite Carbon
Ridley use a combination of the very best Torayca carbon: 60T, 50T, 30T, 24T. Toray carbon gives these Ridleys an exceptional cycling feel.
Thanks to a D-shaped steerer tube, Ridley are able to fully integrate all cables. A huge aerodynamic advantage that looks so sleek!
Comfort Seatstays
Ridley developed seatstays using oval tubes. The result is maximized comfort and perfected power transfer!
Helium tubing
The Helium has classic round tubes... Wrong! It has a slightly ovalized tube profile that perfectly balances stiffness, comfort and weight.
