Frame set Ridley Helium SLX Design 06AS
The Helium frame is a ultra-gourmet frame. It’s simply at the highest level when it comes to stiffness to weight ratio. Ridley 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 André Greipel putting all his power on it in a sprint. Hence, weight as well as performance is built into this frame as it must satisfy the most demanding of our pro cyclists.
The Helium is not only built for the pros, but is designed for anyone who wants to pull everything 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.
Compatible with both mechanical and electronic shifting.
Helium SLX is the top of our ultra-gourmet Helium line of frames. It’s the lightest frame of them all, barely tipping the scale at 750g for a size medium. It’s a mixture of 60/40/30-ton high-modulus carbon fibre. If vertical speed is your thing, this is the ideal bike for you. Simply tap on the pedals and up you go! It is also incredibly stable through high speed turns and descents.
