The Helium SLX Disc is absolutely the best performance road bike for every challenge you want to take on. Perfect for those who are looking for the ideal machine to conquer climbs like a real pro.
This incredibly lightweight disc brake-equipped bike weighs in at just 780 grams for the frame (size M). Fully built, it can easily drop below 7kg.
The Helium is incredibly stiff, which is why Thomas De Gendt, AKA Breakaway King – master of one-minute 500W blasts, repeatedly races it to great success. The ultra-thin seat stays provide comfort without sacrificing a single watt.
Thanks to the ingenious F-Steerer Technology, that allows for integrated cable routing, you gain 15 watts without even having to pedal.
The Helium Family
The Helium bikes are the very best all-round road bikes for the most demanding cyclists. These high-performance machines are incredibly stiff and durable yet ultra-light to dance up impossibly steep climbs. They also handle like a dream when flying at top speed on challenging descents. This is what makes them frame favourite of the Lotto Soudal pro cyclists.
While their classic, round tubing may deliver the best balance of weight vs stiffness and reactivity vs comfort, it surely doesn't help them to stand out from the crowd. What instead earns them their insanely high performance marks in every bike test are their sublime riding characteristics. In a nutshell, this bike instantly lifts the cycling level of every rider - in every way.
