The 2016 Ridley Noah brings aero performance to more accessible pricepoints Ten years ago, the Ridley Noah was one of the first aero road bikes to hit the market. Since then, the Belgian brand has evolved the original idea with the Noah FAST and Noah SL iterations, which have been raced at the Tour de France and elsewhere on the world stage. For 2016, the Ridley Noah is available for those of us who aren’t racing the Tour, and at more down-to-earth prices than the FAST and SL machines.
Similarly, the 2016 Ridley Dean is a mix of trickle-down aerodynamics and real-world functionality, being offered at three price points from a Shimano Ultegra Di2 level down to Shimano 105.
"These bikes are a bit of a departure, brining tech to the the everyman," said Richard Wittenberg, Ridley’s vice president of international operations. "These bikes are for the guy who is not just a cyclist, but who is a cyclist and a runner and a skier, or is saving for his kids’ college. He wants performance but doesn’t need 100%… maybe 85%."
