Belgian brand Ridley will be making its Lotto Soudal Fenix SL frame available to buy from the end of April.
The Soudal Fenxi SL is the same frame that is used by the professional team as they compete in some of the biggest races in the world. Lotto Soudal has some of the world’s leading riders including Andre Greipel.
Visitors to the iceBike* and Sportline Show back in February may well have seen this exact frame on display on the Ridley stand and at the end of this month if will be available to members of the public.
The Ridley Fenix SL is the upgraded Fenix frame that took third under Jurgen Roelandts at the Tour of Flanders in 2013, and includes a number of noticeable improvements. Now a pure Classics bike, the Lotto Soudal team tested out the frame at last year’s Classics – it was the same Fenix SL that Andre Greipel was riding as he crested the Koppenberg ahead of the peloton at the Tour of Flanders.
Ridley brand manager John Harris said: “We are really excited to be making this stunning Lotto Soudal replica frame available to members of the public. Both the bike and the brand itself has so much history with the Classics, it is great to give keen riders the chance to ride such an iconic frame. Ridley put in a lot of work to developing the Fenix SL and it is right that everyone should have the opportunity to ride like the pros.”
The frame will be available to buy at the end of April with an RRP of £1,399.99.
