Ridley unveils new Noah SL at Eurobike
The Noah SL is all about speed and performance. It's racing heritage, combined with superior aerodynamic technology and beautiful design sets a new benchmark in the aero category. It stays true to the Ridley form-follows-function design principle where every detail has been studied and tested to reach ultimate performance. The Lotto Belisol riders wanted an all-round aerodynamic frame that is also light, Ridley provided the Noah SL.
André Greipel: "There is a very good communication with Ridley Bikes. I have a close contact with them, so we can exchange ideas. They want to supply us with the best material and we can make suggestions. I suggested an adjustable seat post, to easily change the height, that's also positive for the buyers. It's important that Ridley Bikes supports us. There's a constant evolution in the bike world, so you need the best engineers. At Ridley Bikes they are always looking for innovations to make the bikes even better."
"As a rider I appreciate that Ridley Bikes takes our advice to heart. The good relationship between the riders and Ridley Bikes is necessary for the future. The Noah SL is the next step in the development. I already did a training with the Noah SL and a first impression never deceives. The frame looks good and is lighter. It's also stiff, which is very important. This is a fast bike. I'm looking forward to race with it."
