Ridley Helium X Ultegra Road Bike
The Helium X shares the same geometry and technology as Ridley's top-level Helium SLX model with all the same benefits to the rider but a slightly different carbon grade and layup with a mixture of 30/24-ton high-modulus carbon fibre means Ridley have been able to hit a more affordable price point. The Ridley engineers have struck the perfect balance between light weight and stable, predictable handling; riding the Ridley Helium X there’s no nervous skittish feeling on descents and high-speed turns, only a confidence-inspiring ride that leaves you focused on race tactics and what's going on around you in the bunch.
 
The Helium is not just built for the pros though, it's designed for anyone who wants to get the very best out of their riding, helping you to be fast on the climbs so you can target those illusive Strava KOM's, fly on the flats and rolling terrain, and sprint like a pro. With a sensible amount of compliance engineered to the frame the Helium X is also comfy enough to keep you motivated during long distance rides and is built to conquer the most demanding Sportifs or Gran Fondos.
 
The Ridley Helium X features the brilliant Ultegra R8000 11-speed mechanical groupset providing crisp, predictable gear shifts every time. A Rotor 3D30 chainset featuring 36/52T chainrings combined with a Shimano 105 R7000 cassette gives you a generous spread of gears that will enable to you conquer the hardest, hilliest rides imaginable; Ridley have also specced Forza RC23 wheels to keep you rolling fast and enable you to accelerate instantly up steep climbs.
