Description

Rise above categories.

While we're grateful for the endurance trend in the peloton, which moves away from the tendency to privilege aggressive aerodynamics and weight loss at the cost of rider comfort, we aren't necessarily keen on adding weight in order to achieve a more comfortable ride. Ridley's Fenix Carbon Force Complete Road Bike, which limits its claimed frame weight to just 1,230 grams for a size medium, addresses this issue by combining a geometry that's proven podium-worthy at Flanders with an efficiency and weight that also recommend it for a multi-summit day in the high mountains. In an overly-specialized industry, the Fenix rises above limiting categorization.

The key to the frame's limitless ride is Ridley's artful layup of vibration devouring 30 and 24 ton unidirectional carbon fibers. While the harsher, purely weight-focused frames in Ridley's line use 50 to 60 ton moduli, the Fenix's carbon strikes a balance between smoothing the road and promoting rigid efficiency. Potholes, cobblestones, and other road hazards — which may feel like repeated hammer blows to the kidneys on 60 ton carbon — take on all the disagreeability of crosswalk paint. Just in case you ever do get tired of wantonly riding over road obstacles, the stiff, tapered head tube nets responsive steering to dodge through debris with ease.

Comfort and handling aside, the Fenix is meant to get angry when the road turns up or when you start turning the screws. The built-up bottom bracket junction, PressFit 30 bottom bracket, and burly chainstays address your power transfer needs, ensuring that comfort doesn't come at the cost of a uselessly wagging drivetrain spine during hard efforts. The seat tube is also squared-off at the bottom with gradually softening edges as it rises to the seat collar. This makes for less lateral flex where you're putting power into the road and a more compliant ride where the road's putting impact into you.

  • An endurance machine proven on the cobbles of Flanders
  • Geometry blends racing aggressiveness with long-mile comfort
  • Carbon fiber ensures low weight and comfort can coexist
  • Oversized bottom bracket shell reduces flex
  • Tapered head tube tracks confidently through corners
  • SRAM's Force and Rival components add to the bike's versatility

Is it possible to change out the cassette for the same grade just different gearing

If you’re changing to larger cogs you may also need a longer cage derailleur and chain. I think this is also a preconfigured package deal so I would ask competitive directly

A Lot For A Little

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I'm 45, and 6'4" and 178 pounds (I bought the large), and I've put in just about 500 Bend, OR miles on the Fenix over the first two weeks. At this price point, I'm not sure that you can get a better bike, as the SRAM Rival components shift crisply (I will replace the crankset with a Force 53/39, just because I like that setup) and the wheelset is solid. Having ridden both a Damocles and a Helium over the past 15 years, I can definitely feel that the Fenix is a more "relaxed" set-up, which makes the chip seal roads a lot more bearable. That said, when I hit climbs, the Fenix, like all Ridley's I've owned, reacts quickly. This is a really, really excellent bike. I swapped the saddle for my Arione, but that's really a personal preference thing; pushed it all the way back on its rails, I was able to make my set-up work without swapping the stem out for a longer one. Also, see that I'm 45, I prefer the rim brakes to a disc, so I don't see any downside to this bike build.

George,
Thanks for the detailed review! I'm glad the bike arrived as expected and psyched you've already got 500+ miles on the new ride.
Nice to know there's other Arione lovers out there as well.
