Belgian bike manufacturer Ridley are responsible for the ridiculously light Helium SL LTD, the frame weghing a mere 750g and the full build tipping the scales at just 5.5Kg.
As another celebration for Campag’s 80th anniversary, Ridley are releasing a super limited run of 80 models with special edition colour scheme which features red accent along with the full Campagnolo 80th anniversary groupset.
Last week Campagnolo celebrated its 80th Anniversary, an occasion for which they launched a special, limited run 80th Anniversary groupset. Such a unique groupset deserves a bike which not only matches its technological qualities, but also its outstanding design. We have therefore created a Helium SL that truly lifts the 80th Anniversary Collection to a higher level. Of this exclusive bike a maximum of 80 will be built.
Our Helium SL is the bike used by the WorldTour riders of Lotto-Belisol. It is renowned for its excellent stiffness to weight ratio. Because of this and because of its classy, elegant look it’s the ideal bike to mount the Campagnolo 80th Anniversary Collection on. Our design team came up with a stealthy paintjob for the frameset with just the right amount of red accents to complement the design of the groupset.
Ridley is going to build a maximum of 80 Helium SL’s in this configuration. Whoever wants one, will have to decide quickly and contact his Ridley dealer as soon as possible to pre-order his Helium SL Campagnolo 80thAnniversary Collection.
The advisory retail price for the bike is 8.999 euro. (£7700!)
