Description

Blaze Your Own Trail.

Aggregate assaulting has morphed from a once niche discipline into a mainstream activity that has spawned quite a few gravel specific bikes. Folks wanting to ride in "road-like" conditions and avoid cars are finding the allure of riding bikes designed to excel on dirt roads. Ridley has long been a staple in the European cyclocross circuit and the pro peloton so they know a thing or two about riding and racing dropbar bikes on and offroad. A few tweaks to their road and cross racing bikes, which we will delve in below, turns out building a fine gravel frame and the Ridley X-Trail Carbon Frameset is ready to join you off pavement to embrace all manner of tarmac, gravel, and even some single track.

Despite its gravel intentions, it isn't a slow handling slouch and Ridley shapes the X-Trail's frame using ultralight unidirectional carbon, equipping the frame to offer quick accelerations and a stiff, responsive ride for everything from bikepacking weekend trips to off-road full gravel races. Subtly asymmetrical, the Oryx Disc fork is carefully reinforced on the left leg allowing it to more efficiently bear twisting forces applied by disc brakes, and with a 15 x 100mm thru axle in front and a 12 x 142mm in the rear, the frame achieves confidence-inspiring stiffness throughout.

As implied by the above, the X-Trail is a smorgasbord of frame geometries. The result resembles more of a road bike than a classic cyclocross bike like the X-Night; it has a lower bottom bracket, shorter chainstays, and a stack/reach combination that leaves riders in less of an aero is everything, slammed racing position. In contrast to its road racing frames, Ridley extends the X-Trail's head tube by 10mm, bringing the rider into a more upright position to accommodate longer training and touring rides 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 36mm wide on more rugged terrain.

  • An all-road adventure bike
  • Long, stable geometry keeps its footing on gravel and dirt
  • High-modulus carbon fiber frame is efficient and lightweight
  • Disc brakes keep stopping on point in inclement conditions
  • Clearance for 36mm tires roll fast and offer traction
  • Expands Ridley's X series beyond the limits of cyclocross

Does the frame accommodate fenders? If so and recommendations?

Hey John,

This frame will accept fenders. It would best work with the SKS strap on fenders. That would be the quickest and easiest option.

This frame delivers

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The X Trail rides like a mountain bike but climbs like a road bike. This frame feels solid on loose gravel and elicits confidence when descending. Throw on some hydraulic brakes and you really got a stable off-road ride.
I've ridden a regular cross bike on single track and always disliked its twitchy handling. The X Trail carves the turns because of the adequate wheelbase.
On a personal note, I'm partial to Ridley frame geometry as the tall head tube allows for all-day comfort on the hoods without sacrificing aero positioning when in the drops.

Unanswered Question

Can the frame and fork take 160 rotors with flat mount calipers without an adapter?

What all is included with the frame set? Does it include headset bearings and seatpost binder?

My frame arrived today and it does include headset bearings/races etc. and a seatpost binder/bolt

Will this work with 160mm rotors and TRP Spyre calipers? Any adapters required? Thanks.

The frame is Shimano flat mount standard. I am planning on running the same TRP Spyre 160mm brakes using TRP's flat mount to post mount adapters

Hey Kevin, starting in '07 the frame is compatible with post mount and flat mount calipers in both 140 and 160. The Oryx Disc 15TA is designed as flat mount but backwards compatible with post mount using the following adapters:

– For 140mm rotor: BRPADATRP005

– For 160mm rotor: BRPADATRP002
