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.
