First Look! Ridley’s New Aero Noah FB with Integrated Brakes on Frame, Fork

Ridley’s launching their completely new Noah FB aero road bike today claiming to be the first bicycle with brakes completely integrated into the frame and fork.

We’ve seen bikes like the Storck with brakes built into the frame and fork as bolt-on components, but Ridley’s is the first to completely mold the stoppers directly into the frame and fork. We’ve got pics and more specs coming, but wanted to get these videos up as we got them. Teaser above, and three more detailed movies after the break…

F Brake Video shows the integrated brakes.

The new F Split Fork with aero slits to reduce turbulence at the front wheel.

F Surface patches use a rough surface treatment to create a bit of an eddy at the front of the tube which makes the air hug the back of the tube closer.

Um…. If I am not mistaken the THM Scapula F integrates the brake into the fork.

Cool. I want one. Will UCI allow it though? I don’t care.
