Save $900.02 (47%) $999.97 MSRP $1,899.99
In a world gone mad for carbon, it's refreshing to see Ridley not only embrace aluminum, but leverage its best qualities to bring you a superior ride quality. The 6061 aluminum frame and carbon fork are easy to maneuver in tight spots and they stay true and fast on a wide open course. Further, we asked Ridley to go with a set of low spoke count Alex Race wheels and Continental Ultra Sport II tires for improved acceleration and grip.
There's no doubt about it, Shimano Ultegra can win races and crush big climbs and descents on group rides. While enhancing your performance by manipulating your body is cheating, nobody said anything about your bike. Make it light. Make it fast. That's why Shimano Ultegra was the perfect choice for the Fenix AL. It adds instant precision and performance to any ride. Even better, you don't have to race to enjoy its benefits. After all, do most people by sports cars for sports? Nope. Same rule applies to the Fenix AL. You may not want to hit 60mph on a descent, but it's nice to know that you could.
Finally, 4ZA, Ridley's go-to brand for durable and lightweight components, supplies the handlebar, stem, saddle, seatpost, and cork grip tape.
