And so the aero road bike market gains yet another new entry in the shape of the new Ridley Noah. There wasn’t a whole lot of detailed info released with the bike, but the most salient point would have to be a claimed 250 weight savings over the previous (rim brake) version.
As with most aero road frames, the new Noah (which has its own celebrated Tour de France race win history) has been tested both in CFD modeling and in the wind tunnel to ensure optimum wind cheating benefits. The Noah will be available is five sizes from XS (51 cm) to XL (63cm).
This was a prototype bike that had special graphics, but not used in production.
The new Ridley Noah will be available in either rim or disc brake versions.
By far one of the most slender one-piece handlebar/stem combos we’ve ever seen, the Noah’s stem is available in six different stem lengths with three different stack heights (3, 5 and 10mm).
