A PF30 bottom bracket and oversized, tapered head tube enhance frame stiffness. The PF30 bottom bracket allows the use of a crankset with a shorter, beefier spindle for less flex and improved power transmission. The bottom bracket shell is also burlier, which means that the frame is stiffer, so more watts go into forward movement, and less into frame flex. The tapered headtube enables the frame to be stiffer for improved handling and control on even the roughest terrain. The full carbon fiber fork features a medium rake that gives the bike the ability to dive into turns without feeling twitchy or unstable. The carbon fiber arms and steerer help absorb road vibrations and smooth out the ride.
The Ultegra 6800 groupset is more than just an 11-speed evolution of Ultegra 6700. Ultegra 6800 front derailleur has a longer lever arm for more effective and precise front shifts. While the rear derailleur is lighter and more responsive; shifting across the entire cogset feels snappy, with no chain rubbing or hesitation. And the 4-arm crankset is a stiffer overall then the previous model, with one BCD measurement for all chainring sizes, so you no longer have to choose between race or compact. Dual-pivot brakes round out the groupset.
A build kit from Ridley's own 4Za brand provides the finishing details. Ridley engineers every 4Za component to integrate seamlessly with their bikes, ensuring optimized performance at every level. The bike rolls on a set of lightweight Fulcrum Racing 7 clincher wheelset, which spins up quickly and provide that extra climbing punch.
