The Belgians know what is needed for a bike to handle the toughest of roads, and they also have a heritage of long distance epic races that, from the very start, demanded that bikes protected riders from the worst that the roads could throw at them – we call these endurance bike, the Belgians call them “all-rounders” – bikes that can carry you for miles in comfort, tackle any kind of road conditions, and still have the performance needed to race on. The Fenix draws on all of this experience and expertise to deliver a fast and super reliable bike for any kind of riding.
The development of the Fenix began way back in 2010 and has carried riders like Cadel Evans and André Greipel to world-beating success. This summer, Ridley launched their latest model, the Fenix SLX Disc – the lightest all-round road bike with disc brakes on the market. This true pro-level product sits alongside the already lightweight Fenix SL Disc. The difference between the two bikes? The new Fenix SLX Disc weights less than 850 grams – the lightest endurance/all-round disc frame on the market. But this is no fragile show bike – it is a brilliant piece of engineering with all of the Belgian toughness you would expect from Ridley. “Ridley is very proud of this product. We designed it at our own headquarters and factory in Belgium. We feel proud about being Belgian and we want to improve our products continuously. That’s the only way to bring the best products on the market. We definitely succeeded in this purpose with the Fenix SLX”, Jochim Aerts, CEO and founder of Ridley.
