The Noah range incorporates years of experience in developing aerodynamic standards in the cycling industry. Synergies between experienced in-house R&D engineers and top sprinters in the pro peloton have led to industry-leading breakthroughs. Proven by world-class performances like Robbie McEwen’s Green Jersey win and André Greipel’s victories on the famous Champs-Elysées. The Noah has become a synonym to aerodynamic performances, and the Fast is certainly no exception.
The Noah Fast Disc is Ridley’s top-level aero model, and was built from scratch with every feature rebuilt. This powerhouse is unrivalled when it comes to cutting through wind thanks to component integrations of the fork, handlebar, seat post clamp, thru axles and cables, next to F-Surface Plus, F-Wings and spacer profile updates. On this bike every rider is able to find his perfect position accurate to 1mm as result of our whole bike approach, where every part needs to fit together perfectly.
Thanks to adaptations in the fork, seat post and handlebar the bike's total weight is about 250 grams lighter than its predecessor. Subsequently the rim version is able to stay below 7 kg on the scale, without the need of exotic lightweight components. Light as a feather, when speaking aero.
The disc model adds about 500g because of the heavier groupset, brakes & wheels. The stiffness of the bottom bracket & head tube is further increased to its predecessor. You’ll keep feeling the power you’ll put on those pedals. At the same time, the lowered seat stays also create vertical compliance to enhance comfort.
Equipped with disc brakes, it is ready to conquer everything in its path no matter the weather conditions or terrain. Compatible with both mechanical and electronic shifting.
The Ridley Noah Fast is now available for pre-order, for a late September release.
