Ridley Aura SLX Ultegra Di2 Ladies Bike
The Aura frame is Ridley's ultra-gourmet women's bike. The female-spec'd version of their Helium frame, it is simply at the highest level when it comes to stiffness to weight ratio. Designed it to be as light as possible to tackle the longest, steepest climbs yet stiff and durable enough to expertly handle racers putting all their power thorough it in a sprint. The Aura is not only built for the pros, but is designed for anyone who wants to pull everything out of their bike. It'll help you to be fast on the climbs to grab those Strava KOM's, fly on the flats and rolling terrain, and sprint like a pro. It's also comfy enough to keep you motivated to ride long distances to tackle Gran Fondos. Its slightly longer head tube allows for more bike fit options, especially for those with shorter torsos. Spec'd with female-specific components for increased comfort. Handlebar with shallower drops, slightly shorter stem, anatomically-correct saddle, zero-offset seatpost and user-friendly gearing of 50-34 / 11-28 makes it an absolute pleasure to ride. About the Aura SLX The Ridley Aura SLX is the the lightest frame of them all, barely tipping the scale at 750g for a size medium. It's a mixture of 60/40/30-ton high-modulus carbon fibre. If vertical speed is your thing, this is the ideal bike for you. Simply tap on the pedals and up you go! It is also incredibly stable through high speed turns and descents.

About Merlin Cycles
This cycling deal was found at Merlin Cycles, one of the UK's most famous bike shops, located up North!
Merlin Cycles started life in 1993, founded by John Moss as a mail order Mountain Bike business ran directly from his spare bedroom in Chorley. Due to early growth, shortly afterwards he opened his first outlet in Ormskirk, and a few years later in 1998, the company grew into larger premises, moving to Leyland.
In the 1990's and early 2000's, Merlin were known for their ranges of mountain bike hardtails, released under the Rock Lobster and Merlin "Malt" brands. These steel and aluminium hardtails were designed in house, available as framesets or complete bikes, representing excellent value for money. The company was also well known for their handbuilt MTB wheels, which in my experience lasted for years without needing truing!
Merlin have always been competitive on pricing, particularly on suspension forks, brakes, wheels and groupsets, which continues to this day. Nowadays they have introduced road cycling equipment and clothing into their product ranges, due to the increase in popularity in this field, thus catering for a broader range of cyclists.
