Some of the great Belgian cycling stories have humble beginnings. The athletes, the races, they all had to start somewhere on their paths to glory. So it is with a great Belgian bike brand. Ridley started quietly in 1990, subcontracting custom made frame construction. It became a separate brand in 1997. Through it all, the heart of Belgian spirit guides the decisions we make and the bikes we offer.The result is a bike brand recognized among pro-tour teams for bringing innovative solutions and unparalleled craftsmanship to the industry. Ridley & cycling: one family, one passion.
The Helium offers the lightweight advantages of the Helium SL at a very aggressive price. Optimized for stiffness to weight, the Helium offers unparalleled performance and comfort in its range. Brutal Belgian pave and Tour de France hors category climbs are no match for the Helium.
- Superlight race bike.
- Oversized tube shape is engineered with the use of extremely high modulus carbon. This results in a very light frame, without compromising stiffness.
- Dual purpose internal cable routing uses the same holes for mechanical and electronic shifting, resulting in a very clean design without excess holes.
- Flex seat stays increase vertical compliance for additional comfort, without reducing lateral stiffness.
