Wallays wins Paris-Tours

With 50 kilometers to go, Jelle Wallays sentenced all other riders to compete for the second and third spot on the podium. Fighting against the elements and the gravel section, but nothing could stop him.

The story behind our Gravel bikes | #Kanzo

Ridley was into gravel bikes even before it was a big ‘thing’. When we launched our first-generation X-Trails we didn’t know the segment would be called ‘Gravel’, so we named it ‘All-Road’. Now we know better. Gravel has grown into one of the most promising markets within cycling. And let’s be honest, one of the […]

The Noah has gone #FromMcEwenToEwan

From Robbie McEwen to Caleb Ewan. Our Noah has come a long way. Launched for the first time in the 2006 Tour de France, with an immediate Green Jersey podium in Paris. Much has changed, but some things didn’t. The Noah has evolved into the Noah Fast, but is still the preferred bike of Australia’s […]

Fenix SL Disc Classics: Muur van Geraardsbergen

The ‘Muur van Geraardsbergen’, perhaps one of the most famous climbs in the Tour of Flanders. This climb contains so much history, we don’t really know where to start. In those early years, they climbed the Kloosterstraat, behind the town center. Some say the race wasn’t important enough back then and therefore not allowed to […]

Fenix SL Disc Classics: Oude Kwaremont

Do you know what’s the most difficult about the Oude Kwaremont? The part after the actual climb. Every time we ride it, we swear on the first part, but we die on the second. If you’re riding towards the Kwaremont, the road suddenly changes from concrete to cobblestones. Really bad cobblestones. Higgledy-piggledy paved or just […]

Fenix SL Disc Classics: Koppenberg

Flanders. Cobbles. Steep slopes. Cycling champions. Few can use the “Made in Belgium” or “Made for cobbles” quality mark. We can. To celebrate that, we headed for the Flemish Ardennes with our Fenix SL Disc. We took a Lotto Soudal pro with us and drummed a “regional de l’étape” for a day of devouring cobblestones.

The Flying Moustache

Take a look at Victor Campenaerts’ record bike, isn’t she a beauty? We think it’s time, with 3 weeks to go, to take a deep dive into Victor’s bike and explore the technology behind the Flying Moustache (thousands of Belgians voted for this remarkable name on the leading Belgian sports media website sporza.be).

Why Campenaerts has gone to Namibia to beat the World Hour Record, timed by Tissot

Namibia, not your everyday cycling destination. But exactly the place where Victor Campenaerts spent his time preparing for his World Hour Record (timed by Tissot) attempt on April 16 or 17. Not just for the exotics, the European ITT champ had some very specific reasons to choose that spot for his training camp. “Definitely not […]

The story behind the development of the Noah Fast

Designing the fastest road bike with the best fit ever. That was the goal of the prestigious project named ‘Noah Fast’. With this in mind, our R&D engineers set out to give it their absolute best effort to investigate the borders of aerodynamics. This would require our engineers to create something new. Something better. Something […]

#thefinalbreakaway: Recap of a bikepacking trip on the X-Trail Carbon

Pro cyclists travel the world for cycling. They train, they race and they’re always on their bike. But never without a strictly predefined schedule in mind. Working towards goals and preparing for the next big race they meticulously plan their daily habits in function of their training scheme. But make no mistake, sometimes they would […]

Gravel or Cyclocross: Which choice would you make?

You like riding off-road. It can be muddy, or dry as dust. Through forests, over fields and back on the road. You prefer drop handlebars. That means you’re a CX enthusiast. Or, no wait, maybe you’re an all-road lover. Perhaps both? What is the difference between a cyclocross bike and an all-road bike? They both […]

2x Silver and a first ever professional Bronze at the Worlds

Three World Championship medals. Never have the UCI Worlds been so fertile for Ridley. A silver medal for Brent Van Moer’s Dean FAST in the U23 ITT on Monday and another silver for Bjorg Lambrecht’s Helium SLX in the U23 road race on Friday. But the cherry on the pie was Victor Campenaerts’ Belgian Blue bullet time with his Dean FAST on Wednesday. […]

Thomas De Gendt crowns himself Vuelta King of Mountain

Choosing the right escape. Attacking. Don’t look back. This is Thomas De Gendt. De Gendt isn’t just an ordinary cyclist. He’s anatypical rider without attitude who rather prefers to attack than to hide in the peloton’s belly. Doing the lead-out for Greipel’s sprint? Too much wriggling. Warming up for a time trial? He doesn’t believe […]

Vuelta stage win for Wallays on the Helium SLX

A flat stage with a traditional scenario. The La Vuelta 18th stage from Ejea de los Caballeros to Lleida was an excellent opportunity for sprinters to show their fast legs after the hills of the last exhausting days. A trio with the Belgian Lotto Soudal rider Jelle Wallays, Sven Erik Bystrom (UAE) and Jetse Bol (Burgos) […]

3 out of 3 for Marianne Vos at the Ladies Tour of Norway

Marianne Vos, a phenomenon in women’s cycling and the last few weeks clearly growing to her best form. She already proved this by winning the Crescent Vargarda for the third time and a stage during the Giro Rosa. This rising form level reached a peak last weekend.

Giro Rosa stage victory for Marianne Vos on her Aura SLX

The Giro Rosa, the female counterpart of the Giro d’Italia and the longest multiple stage race in female cycling. Every stage is raced like a classic: hectic and fast. After a hard day on Italian soil, Marianne Vos took the victory during stage 8 on her Aura SLX.
