Helium Disc & Fork HED90Fs(XL)
The Helium Disc performance road bike contains all the unprecedented cycling qualities and superb technology that go into the top-of-the-line Helium SLX Disc, but with a much lower price tag.
The Helium Disc road bike incorporates the unique oval tube shape which perfectly balances stiffness, weight and comfort. In addition, all cables are fully integrated in the Helium thanks to the F-Steerer technology. This gives it a clean look that's maintenance-free.
What you'll feel is how light, reactive, stiff and comfortable it is to ride - from first to last pedal stroke. What you won't feel is that extra 120 grams on the frame (as it's made of Essential Carbon) which allows it to be much more affordable than its big brother, the SLX.
Geometries based on gender are outdated. Everyone is unique! Ridley recommends bike-fitting and a custom build with our Ridley Configurator.
The Essential Series of Ridley bikes uses exceptional carbon by Toray, taking key features of the Elite Series to a more affordable level.
The Helium has classic round tubes... Wrong! It has a slightly ovalized tube profile that perfectly balances stiffness, comfort and weight.
Ridley developed seatstays using oval tubes. The result is maximized comfort and perfected power transfer!
Thanks to a D-shaped steerer tube, we can fully integrate all cables. A huge aerodynamic advantage that looks so sleek!
The Helium bikes are the very best all-round road bikes for the most demanding cyclists. These high-performance machines are incredibly stiff and durable yet ultra-light to dance up impossibly steep climbs. They also handle like a dream when flying at top speed on challenging descents. This is what makes them frame favourite of the Lotto Soudal pro cyclists.
While their classic, round tubing may deliver the best balance of weight vs stiffness and reactivity vs comfort, it surely doesn't help them to stand out from the crowd. What instead earns them their insanely high performance marks in every bike test are their sublime riding characteristics. In a nutshell, this bike instantly lifts the cycling level of every rider - in every way.
