The Ridley Noah Fast Disc is a first rate aero machine, with Ridley using its aerodynamic expertise and its own wind tunnel to really hone the bike’s aero features and high speed stability. It’s not quite as smooth a ride as some aero bikes though and transmits more vibration through the frame on bumpy UK roads.
The Ridley Noah Fast Disc is available in the UK in just two specs: Ultegra Di2 and mechanical Ultegra. The Ultegra Di2 spec tested uses a Rotor Flow aero chainset with Rotor’s NoQ round chainrings, although it’s easy to swap out for elliptical Q-Rings if you prefer.
Gear ratios are 52/36 with an 11-30 cassette, rather than the more standard 11-28, adding the lower gears to get up hills more easily, while still giving you the top end ratios to take advantage of the fast aero ride on flat and downhill roads.
There’s a bar-end Di2 junction box and as with all Shimano’s latest electronic groupsets, you can set up synchronised and semi-synchronised front and rear mech shifting.
This Model is a Medium, so approximately a 56cm, Suit 5ft 10in to 6ft 2in
