Louiewrote a review of Ridley Fenix SLX Disc LE Red AXS 12 Complete Road Bike on August 12, 2019
Familiarity: I've used it several times
This Fenix SLX Disc build is a curation that was well thought out and rides wonderfully.
I fall right between a small and medium and sizing down to the small made for a more responsive and aggressive fit. The carbon was stiff but forgiving and I really felt it excel when I hammered on it out of the saddle. It still felt really comfortable on longer rides and handled well when the roads got rough. For a racy, one bike quiver, this would be a great choice.
I wasn't sure at first if I liked the frame colors but it looks so good in person. The branding is subtle and the black really shines. Coupled with the Zipp wheels, this is a bike that people stop to admire and looks completely custom.
The SRAM AXS groupset brings it all together. Shifting is smooth, quick and effortless. I don't think I'll be going back to mechanical anytime soon.
