Why We Like The Ridley Noah Fast Disc Red AXS Exclusive Road Bike
Synonymous with aerodynamic performance, the Ridley Noah Fast is designed to give us maximum speed and comfort with minimal effort. Ridley’s engineers turned to the wind tunnel to optimize this lightweight race machine resulting in details that save every possible watt of power so we can stay out longer and push the pace. The F-Wings at the bottom of the fork divert the turbulent wind caused by the wheel hubs, while the uniquely shaped tubing and integrated cockpit combine for a carbon powerhouse that is just plain fast. Not wanting to sacrifice a single watt, the integrated cockpit also allows us to route all of the cables internally for a fast, clean look. And just because it’s light, doesn’t mean that we can’t put the hammer down. The Torayca carbon layup of the Noah Fast is reinforced where we need it most to perfectly balance power transfer and comfort.
For this exclusive Ridley Noah Fast build, we started with SRAM’s top-of-the-line RED eTap AXS drivetrain to create our dream race machine. The RED AXS drivetrain features a 46/33t powermeter crankset with a 12-speed 10-28t cassette out back for an excellent combination of climbing range and flat line speed. The ZIPP 353 NSW carbon tubeless wheelset features a sawtooth design that slices through the air with relentless speed and also offers excellent crosswind stability for when race day conditions are just a bit blustery. We chose the Pirelli P Zero Race SL tires to keep us rubber side down on the race course and a pair of SRAM RED hydraulic disc brakes so we can stop on a dime when the paceline gets a little sketchy. Leaving no small detail untouched, a Selle Italia Model X Superflow saddle and Easton Microfiber bar tape make sure that our touchpoints are comfortable for all-day epics. We can’t wait to swing a leg over the Ridley Noah Fast Disc Red AXS Exclusive Road Bike and make a break for it.
