We love the concept of this bike, Ridley took everything they learnt from the Ridley Kanzo, one of the most able and exciting gravel bikes around and then said, you know what?
Our Noah Fast Aero bike is blisteringly quick and for aero remarkably smooth to ride.
So, enter the Kanzo Fast…
Ridley have managed to create a super fast and extremely capable gravel bike, which at the top end will have Classified’s new rear hub based x2 gearing on Shimano’s GRX 800 Di2 x1 setup.
Genius. Just pure and simple genius!
Kanzo, or canzo, is a word that dates back to the times of the troubadours, who were singers and poets in the Middle Ages. They travelled widely and experienced all kinds of adventures, which they turned into stories about knights or even love stories. On return to their home villages, they would tell the inhabitants about their adventures using three different genres. The most commonly used of these was a “kanzo/canzo”. Their stories moved entire communities, who hung on their every word.
Just like the troubadours, we want to encourage our Ridley riders to go out and ride their bikes, to discover new places or rediscover what they thought they already knew.
