A sense of adventure.

We won't go so far as to say that carbon fiber is overrated, but we will say that there are some applications where we're just partial to the classic aluminum bike frame. The 2018 Ridley X-Trail A20 105 Complete Road Bike is one of those applications, though in our eyes the title "road bike" sells this steed short. Its more of a bike for week-long adventures, MRE's, sleeping bags, and panniers.

The frame is made from triple-butted 6061-T6 aluminum, that's heat treated to further improve fatigue resistance, making it better suited for bikepacking and long-term adventures than the lightest weight elite materials. Instead, we get the feeling of an Old Reliable on the X-Trail A20—a bike that can be trusted to go the distance without fuss, sending it down gravel roads to rekindle a sense of adventure that some of us feel gets lost in the heady rush of innovation that accompanies each product cycle.

The X-Trail's geometry is something of a melting pot, but the end result resembles a road bike more than a classic cyclocross bike like the X-Night. It's got a lower bottom bracket, shorter chainstays, and a stack/reach combination that leaves riders in less of a shoulder-intensive, slammed racing position. In contrast to its road racing frames, Ridley extended the X-Trail's head tube by 10mm, bringing riders into a more upright position to accommodate longer training rides and adventure touring rather than racing exclusively. It's only slightly more aggressive than the Fenix, in fact, but unlike its endurance road cousin, the X-Trail is designed to be run with tires up to 40mm.

Though the frame is aluminum, Ridley equips the X-Trail A20 with the same fork on the full carbon model. The legs of the Oryx Disc fork are shaped from a blend of 30t and 24t high-modulus carbon fiber, which add a bit of chatter-absorption while stiffening the front end in the event your bikepacking route leads straight up a steep fire road. The steerer is still aluminum, and the left leg is built-up in order to offset the twisting forces applied by disc brakes. The fork is equipped with a mountain-grade thru-axle, too, further reinforcing the overall structure against braking forces and the general lumps of all-terrain cycling.

  • A trusty alloy steed for adventuring into the wild beyond
  • Long, stable geometry keeps its footing on gravel and washboard
  • Mechanical disc brakes for stopping power on fully loaded trips
  • Alloy frame keeps pace with bikepacking abuse
  • A Shimano drivetrain built for life in the bush
  • 36mm Clement tires float over loose gravel with supple traction
  • Ridley's X-Trail series brings Belgian 'cross expertise to all-terrain cycling

When will you have more ridley x-trail 56cm medium frames in stock? I'm interested in buying one.

Great frame, comfortable

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I use this bike as a daily commuter, and a weekend warrior. I do about 10 miles in my commute, and just don't want to stop riding.
On weekends I do 25 to 40 mile rides, mixed gravel and paved.
The frame is amazing, perfect geometry.

I'm just shy of 6 feet tall - could I get away with a medium frame - I see you are out of the large.

Yes, the frames run large, I am 6 foot the the medium is a perfect fit for me

Unanswered Question

What is weight of bike, by size?

Unanswered Question

2 questions:
1. How wide a fender will it accommodate? Ridley's website suggests up to a 700x40 tire with maybe up to a 50mm wide fender?
2. Will this accommodate 650b, too? It sounds like the frame can...but it's not explicitly stated. Thanks!

Does this bike come assembled, tuned and ready to go with minor assembly needed.

Hi Jeff, When you place the order we send the bike to our shop for assembly. They dial it in, test ride it, and then when we ship we use our own box so you just have to pop in the wheels, install pedals, and seatpost, and bolt on the handlebar.

Can I get the shipping weight, and if possible box dimensions for an XL sized one?



Hello Jose,

The box we use to ship bikes is 44"x30"x11". A box of this size is weighed by what is known as "dimensional weight" -- in other words, UPS doesn't weigh the box, they measure its girth and charge their fees accordingly. A bike box is charged as though it is an 88 lb. package. The actual weight should be between 30-35 lbs

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I am totally stoked on this bike! I've had it for about 2 months now and have put 180 miles on it. Its my first gravel bike/road style bike so i don't have much too personally compare it too, but im on love with it. When I was shopping around I couldn't find anything at this price point with comparable drivetrain quality. Granted the price is reduced from original msrp of $1,8XX.00, but even the 2018 specialized diverge carbon comp i was also looking at was equiped with the lesser quality tiagra drivetrain and its msrp was $2XX.00 less with an all carbon frame as opposed to solely a carbon fork on the Ridley Xtrail. The only thing I wish it had was internal cable routes, and a bonus would be hydraulic discs instead of mechanical but no complaints about this awesome ride. I made a couple changes to adjust the fit and compliment the color scheme: stem, bar tape and seat post. In the future I would like to get a lighter crankset and cassete, but even still it's not too heavy of a bike. Totally stoked on this ride.

Hola Daniel, estoy queriendo comprar mi primera bicicleta en EE.UU. y estoy interesado en la que tu compraste. Queria preguntarte como te ha ido, como te sientes y cual es tu consejo?

Gracias por tu ayuda y tu asesoramiento.
Tambien Mido 1,70mt, me dicen que me iria bien la talla (s)

Juan Pablo

Great bike!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've had this bike for a few months and love it so far. I've done some longer rides, mixed in both road and gravel, and it holds up to all of it. Nice build for the price.
