Description

Cyclocross perfected.

Cyclocross is a tale of two stories. The first is the mud, muck, and bunny-hops that you'll put your bike through, which obviously requires a strong frame. The second story is that you'll undoubtedly be hoisting your bike on your shoulder multiple times per race. This makes weight of equal importance. However, most manufacturers completely miss in designing for both of these demands in one frame. Thankfully, this isn't the case with the Ridley X-Night/SRAM Red Complete Bike - 2013.

The X-Night frame was built with a monocoque design in order to maximize its strength, its impact resistance (in case you miss when you try to bunny hop a barrier), and its resistance to torsional flex. Ridley employs the same 'Sharp Edge Design' tubing configurations they perfected with the Damocles and first-generation Noah road bikes. In comparison to traditional round tubes, this tubeset gives the X-Night a strength-to-weight ratio that's unmatched in the cyclocross marketplace. It's also unmistakably sexy, and the choice of the top riders on the Ridley sponsored teams. Names like Nys, Stybar, Pauwels, and Meeusen sound familiar? Under one generation and the next, the X-Night has been ridden to numerous World and National Championships along with countless Superprestige wins.

Ridley uses a blend of 30- and 24-ton carbon to create the X-Night frame. This is part of what makes it tough enough to handle the rigors of racing on the world stage. It's also worth noting that the ride qualities on the road are reminiscent of the similarly shaped Damocles, one of our all-time favorite bikes. This translates into surprising comfort over broken pavement and gravel roads. One superb detail of the X-Night is its 4ZA Oryx carbon fiber 'cross fork. The steerer is tapered to allow the use of a 1.5in lower bearing and larger crown to decrease flex in the steering system. It has a stiffness and light weight that mirrors the qualities that you get from the frame, and it allows the X-Night to track through technical courses with unmatched precision.

There are a few key details that we appreciate, since this is a hardcore 'cross bike. Ridley chose to run full-length cable housing for both derailleurs and the rear brake. The housing simply glides through in-molded sleeves within the frame tubes. Setup is a breeze, and the protection afforded by the closed system keeps you shifting accurately race after race no matter how sloppy the conditions. The clever routing of the front derailleur cable allows use of a normal road bike bottom pull derailleur instead of using a pulley on the back of the seat tube that could get full of mud and grit. You'll also find that it uses a PressFit 30 bottom bracket shell. Once again, with mud and sand being a pervasive issue, the extra heel clearance on a BB30 crank will help preserve your components and your shoes. The last standout feature is the CNC-machined dropout design. Rather than a having a wimpy replaceable derailleur hanger, the X-Night uses a bolt-on dropout that's far stiffer in order to provide telepathic rear shifting through the worst of conditions.

The Ridley X-Night is refined even more with SRAM Red shifters and rear derailleur and a SRAM Force front derailleur. The FSA SL-K Light 46/36t crankset and SRAM PG-1070 12-25t cassette combine to give you optimal gear-inches for virtually any course. The cockpit is comprised of a Ritchey WCS stem and a WCS Evo Curve handlebar, while the saddle is a Prologo Zero II — a flat saddle that's ideal for fast weight shifts and position changes. Stopping power is provided by Avid Shorty Ultimate brakes. And to finish the build, Ridley keeps the X-Night rolling on a set of Reynolds Assault carbon tubular wheels that are cased in Clement PDX tubular tires.

The Ridley X-Night/SRAM Red Complete Bike - 2013 is available in the color White/black and in the sizes 52 and 54cm.

Please be aware that the X-Night frame geometry was designed to strike a fine balance between stand-over height and room for your elbow to pass if you prefer to grab the down tube as you shoulder the bike. Because of this, please be aware of the sizing and focus on the top tube length when you consider your purchase. You'll likely want to go shorter here than your standard road bike sizing. The X-Night, like all cyclocross bikes, will have a higher top tube than modern road bikes with sloping geometry. Please don't be alarmed by this. If you have questions about fitting a 'cross bike, please feel free to call and speak with one of our sales staff.
