Iris Slappendel (born 18 February 1985) is a Dutch former road racing cyclist.
She won the 2012 Open de Suède Vårgårda road race, the penultimate event in the 2012 UCI Women's Road World Cup. Slappendel took a total of five UCI race victories in her career, including the GP Comune di Cornaredo and stages of the International Thuringia Women's Cycling Tour, the Ster Zeeuwsche Eilanden and La Route de France.
Outside of cycling, she works freelance as a designer, and she won a competition to design new jerseys for the leaders of the season-long classifications of the UCI Women's Road World Cup, to be used from the 2014 season.
In September 2014 Slappendel announced that she would join the Bigla Pro Cycling Team for the 2015 season. After one season she moved to UnitedHealthcare, racing mainly in North America. In September 2016 she announced her retirement from professional competition, having won her final race, the Gateway Cup, earlier that month.
