Ridley Fenix SL Ultegra Complete Road Bike 2017

In an industry of niches and ever narrower specialization, it's refreshing to see a bike that can handle it all. All at once channeling a lightweight climber, long endurance mile workhorse, and a super stiff racer, the 2017 Ridley Fenix SL Ultegra Complete Road Bike is a one bike quiver to cover all your road riding needs. While it's not the bike's defining feature that would be the Flanders tested geometry and carbon construction, the Ultegra 6800 drivetrain is certainly no detriment. Ultegra is a favorite around the Competitive office because, except for a few grams of added weight, it's functionally equal to pretty much any drivetrain we've ridden. And we've ridden a few. Ridley doesn't skimp on the build kit, either, finishing it with an Ultegra crankset where most manufacturers opt for a cheaper third party option. The Fenix SL carries over Ridley's 2016 updates to this venerable frame, and is built from the same 30t and 24t high modulus carbon fiber as its pre 2016 predecessor. Ridley claims this version of the Fenix SL is 15% lighter and 18% stiffer, and any number of First Ride impression articles from across the industry assure us that these gains don't come at the cost of cobblestone worthy comfort. It's a rare mix of a more upright, stable geometry for long mile comfort, a high modulus carbon lay up for sprint worthy stiffness, and an overall lightweight package that can soar or at least not hold you back on the climbs. The Fenix SL maintains that plush ride in a lighter, stiffer package than the previous Fenix thanks to a few design updates. These include narrower, flat section seat stays that absorb power sucking road noise while maintaining lateral stiffness. The stays feed into a seatpost that's reduced from the previous model's 31. 6mm to a more vertically compliant 27. 2mm. The flat, curved top tube is another significant redesign, serving as a leaf spring of sorts that works in conjunction with the seatstays and slimmed down seatpost to disp...
