Ridley Helium SL Limited Edition 58

To celebrate the launch of their 2013 Helium SL frameset Ridley have created a special edition - the Helium SL Limited 58. Called the 58 because the bike weighs only 5.8kg with pedals & will be sold as a limited edition of 58 bikes with each frame being numbered.  The frame still features a tapered 1-1/8” - 1-1/4” head tube, oversized press fit BB30 bottom bracket, flattened seatstays to give a bit of comfort without sacrificing stiffness, carbon rear dropouts reinforced with steel plates for increased durability and dual purpose internal cable routing for both mechanical and electronic shifting wires, all joined together with tubes designed with what Ridley calls their “form follows function” philosophy, which means no unnecessary kinks, lumps or bendy bits to create a clean and simple looking bike.

Ridley didn’t want to produce the lightest bike in the world with the Limited 58, but to build a superlight bike that still meets the high demands of the peloton re stiffness and day-on-day durability. That’s why there aren’t any exotic or dangerously light components in the build, just parts with a proven WorldTour background. The bike is assembled with the new Sram Red groupset, 4ZA Cirrus Pro finishing kit and a Zipp 202 Tubular wheelset with Continental tubulars. The total weight of 5.8kg is below the UCI limit.  Pedals not included 

The price for the Helium SL Limited 58 edition is 7999 euros (without pedals) and will be available to pick up on 10th February 2013 at your local Ridley dealer. If you’re keen to make a reservation then click on the Ridley Limited’s mini-website, but only for the next 58 days.
