Ridley Falcn RS 2024 test review Build quality
The Ridley Falcn RS 2024 has an excellent general construction quality, it doesn't cost little, around 9300 euros, but the frame is very well made, the availability of sizes is good, the paintwork is excellent and its possibility of customization.
Please note that no decals are used, everything is hand painted.
The quality of the components used is very good, even with this Ultegra Di2 assembly, in fact the weight is competitive, around 7.3kg.
Despite not being a cheap bike, the value for money of the Ridley Falcn RS 2024 is very good.
Ridley Falcn RS 2024 test review Frame
The Ridley Falcn RS 2024 frame is an excellent product, well made, with a wide availability of sizes and good overall build quality.
The weight of the frame is not high, allowing for a 7.3 kg racing bike, which is certainly not little, but not at all high considering that the Ultegra Di2 group was used.
It is an excellent quality racing bike, expensive, but also unique in many details, such as the painting, the possibility of customization, the assembly with attention to the smallest details.
In the end everything has a cost...
Ridley Falcn RS 2024 test review Assemblies
The range of assemblies is complete, with very good construction and assembly quality in each version.
Prices remain high, but proportionate to the construction quality.
As always, the technical and performance difference between the entry level of the range and the top of the range is notable, but by "settling" for the Ultegra Di2 version, the performance is certainly not lacking.
The fact remains that over 9 thousand euros for a racing bike is a lot and often those who have this availability prefer other brands.
However, for the same price, Ridley provides a superior quality bike, equally performing and light.
Ridley Falcn RS 2024 test review Comfort
The Ridley Falcn RS 2024 is halfway between a stiff and uncomfortable aero bike and a comfortable, but heavy, endurance bike.
It is not an uncomfortable bicycle at all, even if it is not an endurance bicycle.
Among high performance racing bikes it is perhaps the most comfortable or at least among the most comfortable.
The seat post's ability to absorb shocks and vibrations is equally good, and the supplied saddle is excellent.
Overall, the ride comfort of the Ridley Falcn RS 2024 is excellent and allows it to be considered one of the best bikes in the category.
Long journeys on ruined roads are therefore feasible.
Ridley Falcn RS 2024 test review Guide
The Ridley Falcn RS 2024 has very balanced geometries, with an excellent compromise between ease and safety of riding and handling.
The Ridley Falcn RS 2024 is a safe, stable, easy to ride, intuitive racing bike.
On fast surfaces a stable and safe racing bike emerges and only on very worn stretches of asphalt does it require greater attention.
Stability during braking is also excellent.
Perfectly stable and precise, on courses full of curves, where competitive handling also emerges.
Excellent behavior on long mountain descents, stable and safe, it fits into curves with ease.
Not very sensitive to side winds and very easy to drive on long straights exposed to the wind.
Perhaps it is not a very easy to handle bike, but it is not slow to enter tight bends and repays the extra effort with excellent directional precision.
An easy to ride, safe, all-round bicycle that satisfies the expert and fast cyclist, as well as the simple tourist who is passionate about racing bikes.
Ridley Falcn RS 2024 test review Performance
The new frame of the Ridley Falcn RS 2024 is undoubtedly a high performance product that combines excellent rigidity, good aerodynamics and not excessive weight.
A very fast racing bike on the flats, where the good aerodynamics and excellent rigidity of the frame are exploited.
It is equally fast on hills, because the weight is not high.
On the most difficult climbs it is still strong with powerful athletes, who manage to exploit the rigidity of the frame.
The simple enthusiast is able to make little use of the potential of the chassis which is very high.
The new Ridley Falcn RS 2024 is however a very competitive racing bike and at ease on any route: the real difference is always made by the legs and training.
The Ridley Falcn RS 2024 does not have a weak point, it goes well everywhere, even uphill, with the only limit of a weight that is certainly not contained in absolute terms.
But Ridley Falcn RS 2024 is going downhill is excellent, precise, safe, travels on a track ...
Equally excellent are the performances on stretches of ruined asphalt, you run fast, safe and with good ride comfort.
Ultimately the Ridley Falcn RS 2024 is a true 360 degree racing bike, it goes fast everywhere and with good training even on difficult climbs.
With a top assembly it is a "tough nut" for all the best high performance racing bikes.
Ridley Falcn RS 2024 test review Pros and cons
The 2024 Ridley Falcn RS has proven to be a very competitive, comfortable and high-performance racing bike.
It goes well and is competitive on every route, it has no rivals among other racing bikes of the same level.
Downhill and on the flat it has very few rivals.
It defends itself very well on hills and well on climbs.
It has no real weak point, with a well-trained athlete it is a competitive racing bike on any type of trail.
Among the defects we can point out a weight that is not very low in absolute terms (it is not a racing bike weighing less than 7kg) and a sales network that is not very widespread.
