2016 Ridley Helium Frameset

The Helium is everything you don’t see. No remarkable shapes and extra’s, but just an excellent bike that does what it needs to do. It combines lightness with comfort while its shape goes way back, making it a no-nonsense classic beauty. Because we all know that less is more.

Superlight race bike, approximate weight: 950g. The oversized tube shape is engineered with the use of extremely high modulus carbon. This results in a very light frame, without compromising stiffness. The dual purpose internal cable routing uses the same holes for mechanical and electronic shifting, resulting in a very clean design without excess holes. Flex seat stays increase vertical compliance for additional comfort, without reducing lateral stiffness
