Ridley Noah Fast Disc Brake Road Frameset. Ridley was an early adaptor to “aero is faster” offering a Noah aero frameset that’s seen steady upgrades since its introduction way back in 2006. Those early frames proved fast indeed and went on to help Robbie McEwen pull on the green jersey as the most consistent sprinter at the Tour as well as later versions piloting Andre Greipel to numerous race wins. Those victories didn’t go unnoticed and the Noah’s aerodynamic advantage quickly became the beacon that guided the frame development of many other builders. Over the years, the Noah has also improved, thanks to the experience Ridley engineers gained while developing new aerodynamic structures learned from in-house computer aided design, finite element analysis, and wind tunnel testing, along with real-world feedback from its sponsored pros on Team Lotto Soudal. We’re honored to be carrying Ridley’s latest version, the Noah Fast Disc Road Frameset, it’s latest top-level aero model that brings refinements including more stiffness, better comfort, less weight, and of course the whole reason it was built in the first place, better aerodynamics. The new Noah Fast is a stunning machine indeed. Every line, shape, curve, and detail is designed with aerodynamics in mind. While we’re used to seeing Ridley’s dedication to aero details in the past stem from integrated seat masts, cutouts at the fork blades and seatstays to reduce turbulence, and hidden, integrated brakes, this new design eschews such features as the engineers have learned how to build a faster Noah thanks to the firm investing in a state of the art wind tunnel (along with a couple of other Belgian brands in a collaborative effort dubbed “Flanders Bike Valley”) and the time spent there. What we do notice immediately with this updated version is an ultra-slick seat post clamp, and an all-new fork, designed to work with the intergraded handlebar and stem combo to hide the cables. The key piece to this new fork design is Ridley’s new F-Steerer. Instead of a…
