Why We Like the Fenix SLiC Disc Road Frameset

As Ridley's quintessential all-around road bike, the Fenix SLiC Disc Road Frame is suited for any terrain along your route. It receives a few significant upgrades to add cleaner lines, better aerodynamics, and a more responsive ride. With endurance-focused geometry, the Fenix SLC is designed to comfort extended base-miles training while maintaining an affinity for aggressive, challenging terrain. Considering the rolling terrain of Ridley's home territory of Flanders, Belgium, it's no surprise that Ridley continues to push the limits of the Fenix SLiC. It floats across cols and steep bergs that speckle the countryside while maintaining a stable ride quality across rough terrain and cobbles.


Ridley utilizes a blended layup for the Fenix SLC with a precision mix of 30T and 24T high-modulus carbon that maintains stiffness needed for race-pace accelerations and precision steering on technical descents. Yet the Fenix SLC manages enough compliance to extend comfort for the to be a daily driver. Out front, the Fenix SLC receives a fresh carbon fork. The fork uses a similar blended carbon design as found in the frame, and is straightened to provide improved frontend stiffness and more responsive steering. Ridley claims this upgrade moves the Fenix SLiC towards the riding qualities demanded by modern riders who explore deeper and further into lesser-maintained terrain.


The Fenix SLiC also supports a fully integrated cockpit should you decide to make use of the aerodynamic potential of the new design. A Forza N1 integrated handlebar and stem neatly conceal the shifting and brake housing. This integration tidies up the front end and sets a distinct tone to showcase Ridley's intent to elevate the Fenix SLC's aerodynamics towards the front of the peloton. A 27.2mm standard seatpost is used on the Fenix SLC. However, to further improve aerodynamics, the seat collar is covered and hidden beneath an aero-shaped cap that gracefully flows from the top tube to the seatpost.


Please note that this frame is not compatible with SRAM mechanical front derailleurs, only SRAM eTap AXS derailleurs. It works fine with Shimano mechanical front derailleurs.
