Ridley Elite Carbon

Our carbon is manufactured by world market leader: Toray. The Japanese manufacturer is leader in every aspect of carbon development and supplier to absolute top world brands in many industries. For the Elite Series, we use every type of available carbon: 60T, 50T, 30T and 24T.

The higher the 'Ton', the higher the tensile strength of the carbon fibers and the more intensive the development and processing. With 60T, you may need fewer layers of carbon to achieve the desired stiffness as well as the lightest possible bike, but if you built the whole frame with 60T you'd have a very uncomfortable, over-responsive ride. Hence, a mix of 24T, 30T, 50T and 60T carbon is essential as each carbon serves a certain purpose in perfectly balancing stiffness, weight and comfort.

Each bike's unique carbon mix is dependent on its purpose, such as climbing, endurance, etc. In addition, each area of each frame requires its own unique mix depending on its function such as to provide comfort or stiffness. It is here, in the unique carbon compositions, where Ridley makes the difference!

As all our professional teams ride our Ridley Elite Series bikes - including the likes of Tim Wellens, Caleb Ewan or Thomas De Gendt, this means that your bike is treated with the exact same care as theirs.

F-Tubing & F-Surface Plus

How can you ride faster without pedaling harder? How do objects "cut" through wind? While researching ways to improve aerodynamics, the bicycle industry began to gather knowledge from the aviation industry. From this, well-known NACA flight profiles, for designing wings and other components, began to be applied to the tubes of a bike frame.

With further research, our engineers found many additional potential optimisations. By shortening the end of the NACA profiles (F-Tubing), we discovered that drag was reduced. We also created a groove in the frame called the F-Surface Plus. By applying this technique, we created an airflow that flows more efficiently along the tube.

UDH Hanger

The universal derailleur hanger (UDH) is the new standard in the cycling world. Not only is this derailleur hanger compatible with all modern shifting groups, it also protects against derailleur breakage and chain drops. In mountain biking, UDH has long been very common, and Ridley is bringing the technology to other segments as well.

Aero-To-Weight tube shapes

The focus in the road bike market used to be on stiffness versus weight, but has recently shifted towards the balance between aero and weight. Ridley decided to combine the best of both worlds with the Falcn RS, meaning that the Falcn RS has been made as aerodynamic as possible without sacrificing the weight of the bike. The Falcn RS has a similar aero performance to their aero bike Noah Fast Disc and a weight comparable to their climbing machine the Helium SLX Disc, meaning cyclists no longer have to choose between lightweight and aero.

Removable front derailleur clamp

The removable front derailleur clamp will give your bike a clean and neat look when using a 1x setup. We have designed a specific cover to replace the clamp when not used.
Bikes with Removable front derailleur clamp

Diffuser fork crown

The fork crown has an integrated diffuser to reduce drag. The airflow passes more easily through fork crown while extra energy is added to it. The result is that the airflow passes the downtube more easily without pushing the bike back. At the same time there is less drag in the area behind the fork and headtube.

Less resistance, more speed!

Bikes with Diffuser fork crown

Optimized tire clearance

Over the years cyclists have seen a growing trend in the use of wider tires on road bikes. The Falcn RS is developed around 28mm tires and has a max tire clearance of 34 mm, offering a bigger tire clearance than the standard maximum 28mm found on most current road bikes. This allows for greater comfort and lower rolling resistance, as wider tires can be run at lower pressures.

With its increased tire clearance, the Falcn RS offers superior performance on tarmac roads and more. The Falcn RS even excels on broken tarmac roads and cobble sections. It’s the perfect companion for taking on new challenges and performing at the highest of levels in road racing.

Bikes with Optimized tire clearance

"Best In Test" & "Best Performance Road Bike"

Already before the official launch, the Falcn RS participated in a test of Cycling Plus with top-end road bikes and got nominated testwinner!

According to Cycling Plus “the Falcn RS delivered the fastest and most entertaining ride, which is what race bikes are all about”.

This is exactly what we had in mind when developping the bike!

In 2024, the Dutch magazine Bicycling named the Falcn RS the 'Best Performance Road Bike' at the 2024 Bike Awards! During this annual ceremony, the jury took into account the price, features, and preferences of the rider! For our product developers, this recognition is the icing on the cake after the Falcn RS has already proven its qualities in many areas!

Hydro tubing

Our aluminium bikes go through an extremely careful, high-tech process before rolling out of our Belgian assembly line as complete bikes.

We select a 6061-T6 aluminium alloy commonly used in the aircraft industry as it scores very well on stiffness, metal fatigue, weight and welding precision. All our tubes are triple-butted where central wall thickness is 3x thinner than at the ends. This minimizes weight and maximizes stiffness.

The tubes are also hydroformed - a process in which water under pressure gives the tubes the desired shape, without potential damage that mechanical shaping can cause.

Lastly, we use a “double-pass flat weld” in crucial places for extra strength and clean finish - an absolute must for modern aluminium bikes.

Bikes with Hydro tubing

Fenix tubing

The Fenix has a unique tube profile. When you slice the frame lengthwise in half, you'll see a clear distinction between 'comfort' and 'stiffness'.

The oversized headset provides extra stiffness and stability which is instantly felt when accelerating or in its pinpoint handling. The massive downtube increases stiffness while adding strength. Its BB86 bottom bracket and asymmetrical chainstay deliver max power transfer.

The slightly curved top tube becomes narrower and rounder when moving towards the seat tube. Like a leaf spring, it helps absorb bumps in the road. The 27.2mm seatpost filters out vibrations, along with slim, oval-shaped seat stays which provide the perfect balance between stiffness and comfort. Learn about the seat stays HERE.

Ridley Essential Carbon

Our carbon is manufactured by world market leader: Toray. The Japanese manufacturer is leader in every aspect of carbon development and supplier to absolute top world brands in many industries.

For the Essential Series, we use two types of carbon: 24T and 30T. The Elite Series, though, goes one step further and also uses 50T and 60T carbon. With the addition of these two carbons, combined with great effort, we can get the weight extremely low without compromising comfort and stiffness.

The Essential Series directly benefits from the carbon layup knowledge gained through the creation of the Elite Series. This means that our Essential Series reaches that same level of stiffness and comfort, albeit a slight bit heavier due to the use of 24T and 30T only which require more layers compared to 50T and 60T to reach the desired stiffness.

Bikes with Ridley Essential Carbon


Cables at the front of your bike have a major impact on its aerodynamic performance. On the flipside, getting rid of cables at the front has an aero advantage of a whopping 10 to 14%, depending on the bike.

That's why our R&D department dedicated much time and effort into developing the D-shaped steerer tube, which integrates all front-end cables.

This uniquely shaped steerer tube allows all cables to pass through the handlebar and stem, along the flat front area of the steerer tube and down into the frame. Here the cables are completely hidden from the wind - and from your eye, leaving you with a clean looking bike that wins you speed.

Download the manual here to find out how to properly guide all cables through all components.

Comfort seatstays

The rear end of a bike is crucial for both adding comfort and maximizing power transfer.

For added comfort, the seatstays are connected lower down on the seat tube. Due to this lower point of contact, both the seat tube and seatpost can more effectively filter out vibrations. In addition, the seatstays can provide more vertical flexibility. All this results in a more comfortable bike ride.

As for winning watts, the shape of the seatstays is oval with the widest side on the horizontal axis. This is key to maximizing power transfer. By placing this wide side horizontally, every watt produced is converted into speed, without losing power on the way to the rear wheel.

Bikes with Comfort seatstays

Kanzo Specific Tire Clearance

The tire clearance of a frame is determined by the use and terrain for which the frame is designed. An AllRoad gravel bike is designed for mixed use on paved and unpaved roads. Adventure gravel bikes have to be able to tackle more extreme terrain as you never know what trails you will encounter. This means that different frames will have a different tire clearance.

Bikes with Kanzo Specific Tire Clearance

Integrated cable routing rear light

The frame offers the possibility to route the cable for a rear light internally inside the top tube where it will exit near the the seattube. At the same time these cable ports are nicely hidden so when not using them, you will hardly notice them on your frame.

Bikes with Integrated cable routing rear light

Hidden Top Tube Mounting Points

The recessed top tube mounts combined with the flush fitting cover result in hidden mounting points when the mounts are not used. No bolt head sticking out to clutter the sleek looking top tube profile. 

A spacer is provided to fill the recess when using a top tube bag. This spacer also doubles as a strap mount so that you can strap various accessories to the top tube. 

Bikes with Hidden Top Tube Mounting Points

Bikepacking Optimized Frame Mounts

The frame has different mounts on the downtube, under the downtube and the seattube. Depending on the frame model, this can be 2, 3 or 4 mounts. These mounts will give you the opportunity to adapt your setup to the use of the bike: position your bottles in combination with a frame bag, using a toolmount in combination with a bottlecage. We have spent a lot of time to determine the optimal position for these mounts on the frame so you can optimize your personal setup

Bikes with Bikepacking Optimized Frame Mounts

Internal Dynamo Routing

The fork is equipped with internal cable routing for a dynamo hub. No more hassle with tape or tie-wraps to guide the cable from the dynamo hub to the front light as the cable is now nicely hidden inside the forkleg.

Design & Innovation Award 2022

The jury agrees: the Grifn can do it all. "If there was one word that Ridley had in mind when developing the Grifn allroad bike, it was versatility. Whether its gravel roads or alpine passes, with the right tires, the bike can do it all. Added to that is the Grifn’s low-key, classic looks", is what the jury concludes.

We’re very proud to be awarded the Design & Innovation Award, the Oscars of the bike and outdoor industries.

Kanzo Optimized Geometry

The geometry of a bike has to support the scope of the bike. The geometry determines how a bike will handle, react. Different terrains, different riding styles require a different handling. That’s why Ridley has developped a specific geometry for each Kanzo model. An adventure gravel bike needs a stable, confidence inspiring geometry while an aero  gravel bike needs to react directly to the input of the rider. Choose your terrain and use and pick the bike that suits you best.

Mahle X20: a natural ride experience

The Mahle X20 drive unit is a compact and proven system that makes the impossible possible. The assistance is proportional to the force applied to the pedals, made possible by a torque sensor in the bottom bracket communicating with the software. Importantly, the system provides power only when you pedal, maintaining the feeling of riding a bike with a gentle breeze at your back. Additionally, the X20 motor operates virtually without additional mechanical resistance above the 25 kilometers per hour limit, ensuring a fluid riding experience.  In summary, Mahle stands for three pillars: light, sport, and smart! 

Bikes with Mahle X20: a natural ride experience

Mahle battery with the largest capacity (350Wh)

For the E-Grifn, Ridley has opted for the battery with the largest capacity (350Wh), with the option to expand it further with a 171 Wh range extender that replaces a water bottle holder. Based on user data from Mahle, engineers know that the 350 Wh battery is sufficient for most rides in this all-road segment. The battery can be charged to 80% in 2 hours and fully in 3.5 hours. Integrated neatly into the frame, the battery results in the appearance of a sporty bike with the added support of an e-bike.

Bikes with Mahle battery with the largest capacity (350Wh)

Custom mapping

With the Mahle X20, you have three levels of bike assistance, specifically tailored for the Grifn by our product managers in collaboration with Mahle. We chose to determine these levels ourselves rather than opting for the standard settings, conducting various test sessions with different types of riders until the ideal three levels were found. This custom mapping exemplifies our eternal pursuit of perfection. Switching between the different assistance levels can be done via the satellite buttons on the handlebars or via the controller on the top tube, which also visually displays the battery capacity and assistance level. The system is ANT+ compatible, allowing battery status, support level, and personal power to be available to other ANT+ compatible devices.

All-road geometry

The geometry of the Ridley Grifn is the superb overlap of a stiff racing- and a tolerant off-road frame! The goal is a reactive and nimble riding feel while keeping a stable handling on off-road terrain. The head tube angle of the Grifn is slightly flatter than the head tube angle of a road bike. Compared to a gravel bike, the head tube angle is sharper. This results in a completely new geometry, specifically designed for the all-road segment. The riders of Classified Ridley were also consulted and gave positive feedback on this all-roader.

Cable routing for lights

Like every bike in the Grifn family, you have the option to route the cable for a rear light through the top tube. This internal cable routing for the dynamo hub is also concealed in the fork leg, eliminating the need for tape and protruding cable ties. This enables you to install lighting on your bike, which is a highly convenient addition when you want to venture into the darkness.

Personalized setup

The frame features three mounting points on and under the downtube, as well as on the seattube, allowing you to customize the positioning of your bottle cages in conjunction with a frame bag. Additionally, there are two mounting points on the top tube for a top tube bag or toolkit, cleverly concealed under a cover. Furthermore, we have designed specific mudguards for the Grifn, enabling you to use your bike in all weather conditions.

Lightweight carbon frame

The lighter weight of the Grifn RS is the result of an optimized carbon structure and the use of lighter and stiffer carbon fibers, resulting in a weight improvement of 140 grams compared to the Grifn.

Bikes with Lightweight carbon frame

Triple-butted technique

Ridley opts for a 6061-T6 aluminum alloy for the Grifn A due to its excellent scores in stiffness, metal fatigue, weight, and welding precision. Each tube has a wall thickness at its center three times thinner than at the ends, employing the ‘triple-butted’ technique to minimize weight and maximize stiffness. The clean welding of each tube ensures that the Grifn A is a thoroughly modern aluminum bike. 

Bikes with Triple-butted technique

Helium tubing

At first glance, the tubes of the Helium look very classic - like ordinary round tubes. But upon closer inspection, you'll quickly notice that we actually opted for slightly oval profiles. The cross section is slightly larger on the vertical axis than on the horizontal axis. In this way, we maximize both power transfer and comfort, while keeping the weight as low as possible. We're talking next-level development!

While there certainly are advantages to be gained by using round tubes as they can achieve a perfect stiffness to weight ratio (when wall thickness of tubes is thin at the center, becoming slightly thicker towards the ends), our oval tubes win you that extra element of comfort without compromising power transfer or weight.

Bikes with Helium tubing

Internal Cables

All cables run through the inside of the frame on our mountain bikes. Not only does this reduce their risk of damage during cycling, but it also has a positive effect on maintenance and service life of all components.

In addition, with no external cables, there is less mud build-up to keep the bike light. It also wins you watts due to improved aerodynamics and ensures for a clean, sleek-looking machine. 

Bikes with Internal Cables

MTB Geometry

Our cross country mountain bike delivers the perfect balance of responsive handling and extra confidence at high speeds.

For both our hardtails and full suspensions we've chosen a slightly sharper seat angle. This gives you a more compact seating position for more efficient pedaling while seated.

By combining a larger head angle with a (slightly) shorter wheelbase, you get an aggressively handling mountain bike. Yet you feel that the MTB lets you to take fast descents with full confidence due to its slightly longer rear triangle.

The geometry of the Ridley MTBs is truly designed to maximize your pleasure. Whether your preference is ultra-technical trails or fast flowing surfaces, our MTBs are always ready for your adventures!

Bikepacking Optimized Fork Mounts

The fork has different mounts to take mudguards and different types of bottle cages, cargo cages or a lowrider. This gives you plenty of options to position your luggage on the bike. They are also positioned as low as possible to keep the center of gravity low. This improves also the handling of bike when fully packed.

Kanzo Fast geometry

Ridley launched its first gravel bike in 2016, kicking off the European gravel market. The Kanzo Fast geometry is therefore the result of five years of focused research and evolution.

Even though our gravel geometry has evolved, its essence remains the same: "off-road confidence." Helping to deliver this strong feeling of stability is a lower bottom bracket and fork angle that's slightly more 'open'.

The Kanzo Fast has a stack that's 22mm higher than our Noah Fast (across all sizes). While its geometry is still very aero, this extra height allows for a slightly more comfortable overall position, and a much more comfortable position while in the drops.

Further adding to its comfort is a shorter reach of 5-9mm (XS-XL) compared to Noah Fast.

Bikes with Kanzo Fast geometry

Kanzo Fast Aero Handlebar

With the Kanzo Fast gravel handlebar, our engineers combined their Noah Fast integrated handlebar knowledge with the unique characteristics of a gravel handlebar. Needless to say, round tubing was never considered as it causes an anti-aero strong pressure drop. And much effort was put into avoiding that flat, angular feeling where off-road riding is painful.

What they created was the ideal gravel handlebar, where responsiveness and aerodynamics are at an unprecedented level.

Its redesigned carbon layup absorbs more vibration, making the handlebar even more comfortable. We also added more flare to the drops and reduced both drop and reach to allow for swift changes in hand position.

The details:

-Drop: 120mm

-Reach: 70mm

-Flare: 16°

-Stem: 10°

Bikes with Kanzo Fast Aero Handlebar

Kanzo Fast tubing

The Kanzo Fast contains lots of exceptional technology such as our F-Tubing, F-Wings, lowered seat stays, D-shaped seatpost, Kanzo aero gravel handlebar and the 1x Only.

Another remarkable feature is its seamless integration of fork and handlebar with the frame.

Most developers thoroughly test each part for aerodynamics, but forget to test the bike as a whole. Our testing method, in contrast, ensures that all aspects of the bike are tested as well as the perfect integration of all essential components.

In addition, the massive bottom bracket and dropped chainstays play an important role in converting every watt into maximum speed. You'll feel it from the very first pedal stroke, and especially when getting back up to speed after every turn.

Bikes with Kanzo Fast tubing

D-shaped Seatpost

The D-shaped seatpost on our aero bikes has a dual function of aerodynamics with a strong emphasis on comfort. Its aerodynamic influences are clearly seen as its profile and groove are both features of our F-Tubing. The cross profile of the seatpost is also shorter than that of the shortened NACA profile of, for example, the down tube.

While very aerodynamic, we certainly built much comfort into this unique D-shaped seatpost design. The flat backside filters out a lot of shock by incorporating flex into the seatpost. This is an important extra feature that we added to our aero bikes as comfort can certainly improve performance, especially during those extra-long rides.

Bikes with D-shaped Seatpost

Best Gravel Race Bike of 2023

Our Kanzo Fast has been voted the best gravel race bike of 2023. The Gran Fondo jury agrees: “Kanzo Fast bike offers a majestic combination of aero optimization and comfort, not just allowing professionals to fly along the gravel roads of this world, but also gravel beginners”.

Gran Fondo cycling magazine is very appreciative of the performance of our Kanzo Fast: “No other bike seemed to encourage us to push ourselves quite as much as the Kanzo Fast”.

We are very proud of this award from Gran Fondo cycling magazine.

1x Only Kanzo Fast

With any bike development, you have to make decisions. Do you opt for the standard? Or dare to innovate? When designing the Kanzo Fast, we were faced with this very crucial decision. Do we configure the seat tube for a front derailleur, thereby reducing possible tire width and aerodynamics? Or do we ditch the front derailleur? With the development of 12-speed and 13-speed groupsets, and new technology such as Classified, we were able to successfully do away with the front derailleur.

Since we no longer had to consider dual chainrings, we could design the chainstays to our liking, while still having plenty of room for 42mm tires. As proven by extensive wind tunnel testing, removing the front derailleur also had a major effect on aerodynamics.

Bikes with 1x Only Kanzo Fast


At the bottom of the bike’s fork there are small, aerodynamic “wings” – hence, the name F-Wings.

Our engineers developed these fairings after extensive testing in the wind tunnel, where they noticed that the hub and its connection to the fork were causing turbulence. These F-Wings fairings ensure that this turbulent airflow flows smoothly again.

You can compare the F-Wings with the modern wings of an airplane, which are also referred to as 'broken wings' because their tips fold upwards. The tips allow aircrafts to save a lot of fuel because it significantly reduces turbulent air behind the wings. Now you see how our F-Wings have a significant impact on your fuel economy!

Bikes with F-Wings

Noah Fast Tubing

The Noah Fast is our most technological bike, and it has lots to do with its tube shapes. This includes its F-Tubing, F-Wings, lowered seat stays, D-shaped seatpost and aero handlebars.

In addition, the Noah Fast features many other outstanding tech advantages such as integration of fork and handlebar with the frame.

Many developers thoroughly test each part for aerodynamics, but forget to test the bike as a whole. Our testing method, in contrast, ensures that all aspects of the bike are tested as well as the perfect integration of all essential components.

In addition, the massive bottom bracket and lowered chain stays play an important role in converting every watt into maximum speed. Now you see why Caleb Ewan relies on this bike!

Bikes with Noah Fast Tubing

Noah Fast Aero Handlebar

It's all about shape and material! Round handlebar tubes cause a stronger pressure drop which kills aerodynamics. But they can be more comfy than an aero bar which, when not designed properly, can feel very flat and angular. This alone can easily ruin a 200km Gran Fondo effort.

That's why our engineers spent a lot of time on the Noah Fast integrated handlebar. It has a distinct aerodynamic profile and not overly wide. The carbon lay-up adds to its comfort, but becomes incredibly stiff and responsive when accelerating.

We use a classic, round bend with drops that are flared by five degrees so you're easily in an aero position. No annoying pressure points or impossible hand positions!

The details:

-Drop: 130mm

-Reach: 75mm

-Flare: 5°

-Stem: 10°

Dropper Post Ready

A dropper post is one of the biggest cycling innovations in the last decade. It has made riding all types of bikes easier, safer, and more efficient. The main benefit of a dropper post is increased safety while riding the lever system allows you to quickly move the saddle out of the way when approaching descents or trail obstacles. With the saddle out of the way, you’re able to be in the appropriate riding position to handle upcoming variations in terrain without fear of your saddle pitching you over the handlebars.

Disc brakes

Disc brakes are one of the newest game-changing evolutions in road cycling. They add that extra level of security to any ride, knowing that you can always stop on demand. They are equally reliable in all weather conditions. The ease of braking is a real bonus, especially when your hands are frozen and barely functional. Just a light pull on the lever to modulate your speed. With no need for braking on the rim surface, wear and tear is reduced. This gets you much more mileage from your wheelset.

Race Proven CX

This Ridley cross bike, relied upon by the Pauwels Sauzen-Bingoal team, offers unmatched precision and agility for competitive cyclocross racing. With a lightweight frame, aggressive geometry, and responsive handling, this cross bike is designed to tackle even the most demanding courses with ease.
Bikes with Race Proven CX

CX geometry

As cyclocross is such a specific sport, we've developed over the years, together with our champions, a geometry that's completely specific to cross.

We opted for a classic non-sloping top tube to significantly increase the angle between seat tube and top tube for more comfortable shouldering space.

The bottom bracket is slightly higher off the ground for smoothly jumping barriers and creating that feeling of champing at the bit, where the bike wants to quickly sprint back up to speed after every turn. The risk of hitting the pedal on the ground is minimized, so pedal through turns and off-cambers and drop your competition!

Further increasing your advantage is its slightly shorter head tube designed to achieve that aggressive riding position.

Do note that when choosing bike size, due to this cyclocross-specific geometry you cannot simply choose your road bike size for your CX bike. Most athletes actually opt for one size smaller, but be sure to check with your bike fitter.
