Ridley Helium SL 2013 Frameset

Superlight race bike, approximate weight: 750g. 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.

  • Use of extremely high modulus aerospace carbon in combination with nano resin to save weight without reducing stiffness.
  • Tubes, designed following Ridley’s “form follows function” philosophy.
  • Carbon rear dropouts with a reinforced steel plate for increased durability.
  • Specially designed oversized press fit BB30 bottom bracket offers a very high level of stiffness for maximal power transfer.
  • Tapered 1-1/8 1-1/4 head tube with angular contact bearings.
  • Flex seat stays provide comfort without sacrificing stiffness.
  • Compatible with electronic and mechanical shifting
  • Curved fork blades, specially designed to combine good stiffness, low weight and the right amount of comfort.

Frame: 60, 40, 30 ton high modulus carbon
