The Noah is the answer to those with a strong need for speed. Every aspect of this aero road frame is designed with watt-to-km/h transfer in mind. Ridley integrate the FAST-technology throughout the frame and fork to create a machine that expertly cuts through wind in both tunnel testing and on the road. So go out, get aero and hammer on it! Nail those Strava sections as you hit your favourite rollers or fly alongside the canal. You’ll return home with that nice high average speed as the bike is made to easily get you up to speed and hold you there.
The Noah SL is the lightest of the Noah range. It’s a mixture of 60/40/30-ton high-modulus carbon fibres. Lighter weight means extra speed, especially when hitting the rollers or climbs. Comes equipped with our innovative F-Split Fork which counteracts wind turbulence generated by the turning wheels.
About the Noah Range
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.
About the Noah SL
The Noah SL is our lightest of the Noah range. It’s a mixture of 60/40/30-ton high-modulus carbon fibres. Lighter weight means extra speed, especially when hitting the rollers or climbs. Comes equipped with our innovative F-Split Fork which counteracts wind turbulence generated by the turning wheels.
Our innovative F-Split Fork counteracts wind turbulence generated by the turning wheels. It does this by expertly guiding airflow through the split, down the fork arms, and away from the spokes. Decreased air friction means more speed!
Here at Ridley, we set extremely high standards for ourselves. And it all starts with our choice of raw materials. We use only the best quality carbon available, sourced from Toray. They are the world’s leading carbon manufacturer, supplying mainly to the aerospace industry. The grades of high-modulus carbon we use vary from our most pliable 24-ton, which gives the frame flex and comfort, to 60-ton which is our stiffest.
When developing our carbon products, we strictly follow the principle of “form follows function”…down to the last detail. When creating a frame, we first analyse the exact function it needs to serve – how it will be used, how it needs to feel in every possible scenario. Next we design the shape of the frame, taking extreme care of the exact curves, lines and varying thickness of each tube. Lastly is the carbon layup. Combining the grades of carbons to get the exact feel of the bike is like piecing together the most intricate 3-D jigsaw puzzle. It usually involves hundreds of pieces of carbon, assembled in a few dozen layers.
Once this puzzle is complete, what you have is a piece of machinery that is perfectly tuned for its task at hand. Every single one of our carbon bikes exemplifies this extreme attention to detail.
