RIDLEY DEVELOPMENT PHILOSOPHY: “FORM FOLLOWS FUNCTION”

For all Ridley frames, we follow one development philosophy – ‘FORM FOLLOWS FUNCTION.’ Every tube shape, frame construction and geometry is chosen for a specific reason. From the beginning, reliability, stiffness and strength have been the essence of our design. Why take risks in designing when nature offers some solid and well proven examples? Most of our tube shapes are inspired from shapes found in nature. In our road range, a water droplet shape is featured in our aero shape, an oversized circle is the basis for our stiffness to weight range, and a diamond is the foundation for our strength range. Reinventing and optimizing nature’s examples has led to a range of top performance bicycles. These are the fundamentals required to resist the toughest cycling conditions in the world, our home ground - BELGIUM
