Ridley Fenix CR1 Ultegra Road Bike - 2015 Performance Exclusive. The Ridley Fenix is about the closest you'll find to a do-it-all bike on the market. The Fenix is designed to deliver both comfort and performance to cyclists of all ability levels. Designed to tame the Pave of northern France and Flanders, the Fenix is the go to bike of choice for Pro Tour teams when they need a bike that can withstand 160 miles of brutal cobbles without wearing out the riders. The carbon fiber tubes on the Fenix are diamond shaped for strength and durability, while the geometry and taller headtube promise plenty of comfort and exceptionally stable handling. According to Ridley, the bike offers comfort, stiffness, and strength in equal measure, but this is no take-it-easy weekend path and pavement bike. This is one of the toughest, race-ready bikes you'll find anywhere, with plenty of get-up and go. It also just happens to deliver an amazingly comfortable ride as well. 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 new Ultegra 6800 features newly redesigned ergonomic hood and lever shapes that draw inspiration directly from the company's superlative Di2 systems. Ultegra 6800 also features a fundamental redesign of the front derailleur, with a longer lever arm for more effective and precise front shifts. And, of course, there is the revolutionary new 4-arm design crankset. The new Shimano design is a fundamental rethink of how forces are distributed across the crankset spider. Rounding out this impressive package is a build kit from Ridley's own 4Za brand. 4Za is in many ways unlike some other company's house brand component arms. The bike rolls on a set of lightweight Fulcrum Racing 7 clinchers, which spin up quickly, climb like they mean it, and deliver superb braking performance.
