Plus, it travels upon fast and stable DT Swiss ER1600 wheels wrapped in high-grip Vittoria Rubino Pro tyres.
The Helium frame is Ridley's ultra-gourmet bike. It’s simply at the highest level when it comes to stiffness to weight ratio. They've designed it to be as light as possible to tackle the longest, steepest climbs. Yet it is stiff and durable enough to expertly handle the likes of Thomas De Gendt’s one-minute at 500W early breakaway effort.
The Helium is not only built for the pros but is designed for anyone who wants to get every bit of performance out of their bike. It’ll help you to be fast on the climbs to grab those Strava KOM’s, fly on the flats and rolling terrain, and sprint like a pro. It’s also comfy enough to keep you motivated to ride long distances to tackle Gran Fondos.
The Helium SLX Disc is the top of Ridley's ultra-gourmet Helium line of bikes. It’s extremely lightweight. The frame tips the scale at 780gr for a size small, which is only 50g heavier than the rim brake model.
By using disc brakes, you don’t only have a bike that expertly helps you count altimeters but provides you with full control in the descent as well. The straight blade fork adds to that sublime handling taking hairpin bends. Furthermore, the use of disc brakes increased the frame’s stiffness, thanks to the 12 mm thru-axles.
The Ridley Helium SLX Disc Ultegra Road Bike got aerodynamically optimized as well, by using F-Steerer technology as Ridley did on the Noah Fast. That way every cable can be integrated to create a clean cockpit.
The Ridley F-Steerer, with half-moon curvature, ingeniously allows for fully internal cabling. Cables run straight from handlebar, through stem and directly inside the steerer tube where they have room to move freely as bar is turned from left to right. Not only does this decrease air friction from cable drag, but it gives your bike a very clean look. In addition, by adjusting the cross-section of the steerer, we were able to increase its lateral stiffness, which comes in handy when sprinting.
Its slightly longer rear triangle increases the bike’s wheelbase for added stability and comfort. It also allows for larger tyres up to 28mm for further increased comfort and versatility. Now you know how André Greipel can easily remain seated up the arduous Oude Kwaremont cobbled climb.
Disc brakes are one of the newest game-changing evolutions in road cycling. They add that extra level of security to any ride, knowing that you can always stop on demand. They are equally reliable in all weather conditions. The ease of braking is a real bonus, especially when your hands are frozen and barely functional. Just a light pull on the lever to modulate your speed. With no need for braking on the rim surface, wear and tear are reduced. This gets you much more mileage from your wheelset.
Rest assured that each bike is fully built and tuned by Wiggle's team of qualified bike mechanics to ensure your bike arrives in perfect condition. We supply all bikes with a set of plastic pedals, a pedal wrench and a multi-tool kit. Find out which size fits you by clicking the size chart tab.
Flanders, the Flemish region of Belgium is infamous for serving up the harshest cycling conditions where driving rain, cobbled non-category climbs, snow and ice are the norm for its 6,000 racing clubs. This place, the pounding heart of a passionate cycling nation where the most revered Spring Classics unfold, is the cold steel anvil where flesh and bone are forged into the greatest racers of all time. This is Belgium, home to Ridley Bikes, and it is here where our products are engineered, hammered into raw form by the roads themselves, and where we refine them in competition. This is Ridley. We are Belgium.
