About Fenix SLiC

The Fenix SLiC is the result of the continuous evolution of 3 generations of endurance bikes. Back in 2012, Lotto Soudal was looking for a real cobblestone bike. A comfortable bike but with aggressive handling. Hence, the Fenix was born.

This Fenix SLiC is our top endurance bike. It combines aerodynamics, thanks to fully concealed cables, with comfort and sublime power transfer.

The rear and top areas of the bike are completely dedicated to comfort: thin rear triangle, 27.2mm seatpost and curved top tube. The wide bottom bracket, diamond-shaped down tube, wide head tube and reactive fork are designed to directly convert all your power into speed. Every Watt = Max Speed

Perfect for any rider who wants one bike that shines on any course.

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.

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.

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.
