Item # RID004U

Embark on a multi-strada adventure.

With local schedules brimming with gravel grinders and cyclocross races, you need a bike that can handle all manner of dirt, gravel, and grass adventures. Get the versatility you're looking for with the 2017 Ridley X-Ride 20 Disc 105 Complete Cyclocross Bike.

Kitted out with Shimano's impressively smooth Shimano 105 11-speed drivetrain and RS505 hydraulic disc brakes, the X-Ride delivers precise gear shifts and consistent braking in even the muckiest conditions. The FSA Gossamer MegaExo crankset holds 46 and 36t chainrings, working in harmony with a Shimano 105 11-28t cassette to provide a massive range of gear choices to tackle any type of terrain. A 4ZA cockpit controls the ride, while a set of Fulcrum Racing Sport DB wheels wrapped in Clement's versatile MXP tires conspire to handle a wide range of surfaces.

Ridley fashions the X-Ride from triple butted 7005-T6 alloy with shaped seatstays to mop up energy-zapping vibrations out on the course. Ridley incorporates internal cable routing along the frame for crisp, clean lines that eliminate annoying cable pinches when shouldering the bike on a steep run-up or grabbing the top tube to navigate a set of barriers. Race-driven geometry paired with wide tire clearance means this bike is anxious to go fast while maintaining ample clearance for mud-caked tires if the fast going gets sloggy.

The 2017 X-Ride comes outfitted with an Oryx Disc carbon fiber fork for a plush ride every time you clip in. This fork features a barely perceptible asymmetry that counters the torsional forces applied to the left fork leg during braking to reduce flex and promote a long fork life. You'll find stainless steel inserts in the dropouts that protect the carbon from damage, and a scuff plate affixed to the inner left fork leg to fend off errant discs during hurried wheel changes and prevent gouging or scratching.

  • A cyclocross race bike that vacations on gravel
  • Traditional 'cross geometry meets versatile gearing
  • Oryx Disc fork is asymmetrical to handle braking forces
  • Stainless steel inserts increase fork lifespan
  • Internal cable routing maintains clean lines
  • Double chainring provides a wide range of gears
  • Versatile tires are appropriate for a wide variety of terrain

Metal still Rocks

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Yes, aluminum is still ok to ride – no expensive plastic on this one. The classic X-Ride is made from high quality 7005 aluminum. This X-Ride will certainly handle anything you throw at it and is a great bike to race hard at the weekend worlds and not have to worry if you’re going to break it. The Shimano drivetrain will certainly be able to last for the long haul as well, it’s Shimano after all. It’s funny that some of the most stable bikes that I have ever owned or ridden have been made from Aluminum, and this is no different. X- Ride feels stable whether you want to explore the world of cyclocross or rip down some gravel roads or do a long road ride. The 4ZA Oryx Disc fork will fit those 41mm tires when you want to throw some mud or the 25 Continental Gatorskin’s . On sizing, a great rule on Ridley’s is if you ride a 56cm road bike then typically you would want a 54cm, but one thing for sure you will not be a 56cm. Please hit me up if you have any questions or need anything at all.
