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 disc brake-equipped bike weighs in at just 780 grams for the frame (size M). Fully built, it can easily drop below 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 Elite Carbon
We use a combination of the very best Torayca carbon: 60T, 50T, 30T, 24T. Toray carbon gives these Ridleys an exceptional cycling feel.
Ridley developed seatstays using oval tubes. The result is maximized comfort and perfected power transfer!
Thanks to a D-shaped steerer tube, we can fully integrate all cables. A huge aerodynamic advantage that looks so sleek!
Geometries based on gender are outdated. Everyone is unique! Ridley recommends bike-fitting and a custom build with our Ridley Configurator.
