Product Description
Helium SLX Road Frameset by Ridley
Ridley's Helium SLX Road Frameset epitomizes the ideal all-around road bike. It possesses a serious stiffness to weight ratio to make it a favorite amongst the pros on Lotto-Soudal in GC efforts as well as on tricky surfaces like the Strada. During the Grand Tours, the frameset doesn't fear scaling high mountains or careening off them at warp speed. Hailing from the spiritual home of cycling, this road weapon is a beast of technology, packing in an featherweight and tough carbon layup, and aggressive, racy geometry that keeps you ready to attack at any moment. You'll be chomping at the bit to go off the front on the group ride or dive into the last corner of a crit at full speed with the confidence that the Helium SLX will deliver you to your intended goal in total control and with less effort than on sub-standard steeds. You'll find a climb-happy personality from this elegant ride, starting with a blend of 60, 40, and 30-ton high modulus carbon fiber. The result is a World Tour-worthy frame that efficiently transfers power while shaving about 30g of claimed weight compared to the SL. The front end sees a slightly different curvature at the tube junctions, a small change that Ridley claims boost stiffness by 15% and translates into even snappier, more responsive handling while carving high-speed turns in the canyons or climbing hard out of the saddle. As with the SL, the SLX features rounded tubing emanating from the seat tube juncture, which slowly becomes box-shaped as it approaches the head tube and bottom bracket junctures. As Ridley puts it, this system creates a clean transition from stiffness to comfort. Supporting this ideology, the rear triangle blends the two shapes. The asymmetric, flat chainstays provide a stiff platform for power transfer to the rear wheel, while the ultra-thin seatstays create a vertically compliant ride quality without sacrificing rigidity.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
