Want to join the ranks of the Flandrian hardmen, or at least feel like one?
To pay homage to this year’s Spring Classics, Ridley has launched a limited edition version of its popular Fenix SL Disc road bike, aptly called the Fenix SL Disc Classics, along with a special contest.
What differentiates the limited edition bike from the standard version are two things, a special paint scheme and some exciting upgrades to the bike’s build such as a Forza Cirrus Pro R45 carbon wheelset, Vittoria Corsa 25c tires, a Deda Zero 100 cockpit and a Selle Italia SLS Team Edition saddle.
However, the homage to the Spring Classics comes in with a special contest, wherein Ridley will be routinely placing the Fenix SL Disc Classics along famous cobbled locations leading up to this season’s Paris-Roubaix Classic, all the while asking followers along social media to name that famous Flandrian landmark.
Those successful in naming the location will be entered to win signed jerseys from Ridley pro riders such as André Greipel, Marianne Vos, Tiesj Benoot and others.

March and April are the months the whole cycling world is focused on the Spring Classics. Belgian races take the majority of the racing calendar and cycling enthusiasts from across the world are visiting this holy cycling ground. As a company rooted in Belgium it’s our highlight of the year as well.
To celebrate this month of cobble madness we are launching a special campaign around the Fenix, which is specifically designed to ride over the local cobble sections and long-lasting Gran Fondos. The Fenix SL Disc Classics will put you in the best position to finish your Flemish Ardennes ride.
During this period between Danilith Nokere-Koerse (March 14) and Paris-Roubaix (April 8) we are also launching different photo contests. We took the Fenix SL Disc Classics to different famous cobble stone sections or climbs. Before every Spring Classic we will release a photo (5 p.m. local time) to trigger your knowledge. A correct answer may bring you a signed jersey from one of our pro riders. Here’s what you need to do:
Everyone has 9 chances to win a jersey. The winner will be announced one hour before the release of the next photo.
About the Fenix SL Disc Classics
This bike is temporarily offered as a limited edition spec’d with a Deda Zero100 handlebar, stem and seatpost and a Selle Italia SLS Team Edition Saddle. The Forza R45-19c full carbon wheels and Vittoria Corsa 25c tires will keep you at speed on that demanding cobble section.
The frame got a team edition paint job to make you feel like a pro when you ride your Classics Gran Fondo the day prior to the pros or when scouting the terrain during your training ride in the Flemish Ardennes.
But there’s more. You have the advantage the pros can’t use: disc brakes. The Fenix SL Disc Classics is ready to conquer everything in its path, no matter the weather conditions or terrain. The lowered seatstays that compensate for the absence of caliper brake bridge increase the frame’s stiffness for that extra boost in power-transfer.
