X-Trail Limited Edition Frameset

In recent years we've seen a surge of attention drawn towards off-road, and all-road adventuring. Maybe it's the last frontier of a wild-west like experience — diving down the roads less traveled to visit sites and places that are seldom seen by others, or maybe we're just feeling a little limited by traditional road geometry, and want the ability to keep our adventure going after the road ends. Either way, those of us who crave miles beyond the tarmac, and not inside of a car, are diving into that wild beyond (okay, maybe it's just a country road), with an ear-to-ear grin, and an appreciation for the scenic route. But keeping your riding unlimited can be tricky — even the speediest cross-country bikes will feel sluggish on pavement and farm roads, and your race-ready road machine is twitchy and down right scary when you hit a deep gravel patch. We recommend steering yourself toward something a bit more versatile, like Ridley's X-Trail Limited Edition Frameset. The X-trail is tuned to handle dirt roads, singletrack, tarmac, and everything in between. Ridley has long been a contender in the European cylocross curcuit as well as the pro peloton, so their experience with drop-bar bikes on- and off-road is undeniable, and the X-Trail is the result of that.

Despite its longer gravel bike footprint and slightly more relaxed geometry, it's important to stress that the X-Trail does not have a sluggish ride quality. 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 weekend bikepacking trips to off-road segments in gravel races. Subtly asymmetrical, the Oryx Disc fork has a reinforced left leg to allow it to more capably handle the torsional forces applied by disc brakes, and with a 12 x 100mm thru axle in front and a 12 x 142mm in the rear, the frame achieves confidence-inspiring stiffness throughout.

As we alluded to above, the X-Trail is a medley of frame geometries. The result resembles a road bike more than a classic cyclocross bike like the X-Night; it has a lower bottom bracket, shorter chainstays, and a stack/reach combination that puts riders in a position that's more comfortable for long rides, rather than a slammed-down, forward-leaning race position. In contrast to its road racing frames, Ridley extends the X-Trail's head tube by 10mm, bringing riders into a more upright position to accommodate longer training and touring rides rather than racing exclusively. It's still slightly more aggressive than the Fenix, but unlike its endurance road counterpart, the X-Trail is designed to be run with tires up to 36mm wide on more rugged terrain.

  • Unlimit your adventures with a bike built to handle it all
  • Off-road geometry handles tarmac, gravel, and singletrack alike
  • Long, stable geometry inspires confidence off the beaten path
  • High-modulus carbon frame is lightweight, efficient, & strong
  • Disc brakes offer superior power on mixed terrain & conditions
  • Clearance for 36mm tires lets you set it up for road or gravel
  • The X-Trail brings Ridley's expertise to the world of all-road cycling

    Great all around bike

    I've put it through the wringer

    The XTrail is a very smooth stable machine. I have ridden it on the road, gravel, and cyclocross on it and so far so good. It actually does all three disciplines very well. I built it up with the SRAM Force groupset. 46/36 crankset. TRP Spyre brakes. HED Stinger 3 wheelset. FMB Slalom 33 service course tires. Shimano XTR pedals. Selle Italia saddle. Zipp service course bar, stem and seat post. One big difference I have noticed compared to my Felt FX is the one degree less head tube angle actually makes the bike perform better on long straight runs and is smoother and more stable over the rough stuff. On the road, it is very capable much more than I expected. It’s not a fast aero road bike but once again smooth and fast enough. On the CX course it works just fine once I made the adjustment to it. It doesn’t turn in as fast on really tight corners and has a tendency to glide around corners. And lacks a little less out of the hole shot compared to my other race rocket. This is my first Ridley and they did a great job on the geometry and frameset. I’m 6’1 and went with the medium frameset. I find frames with a 56cm top tube work best for me even though every bike shop wants to put me in a 58 or 60cm bike. I used competitive cyclist calculator and I have to say it was pretty much spot on. It got me in the ballpark and I fine tuned it from there. I was looking for a gravel/road bike and this bike pretty much nails it. Coupled with my build I am very happy with the way it came. Why only four stars then, because nothing is perfect and nobody gets five stars. Lastly, I painted it white. I ordered the matte gray model and it was horrible. It was primer gray alright. It was nothing like the advertised picture and I even contemplated about sending it back but since I have the skill, the technology and it’s what I do for a living, I painted it.


    Wow dude that looks great, thank you for posting this. I contemplated painting mine myself but I left in the hands of a professional in the Bay Area. I will post pics when I get mine back. i dropped it off for paint 4 days after it arrived, and coincidentally I love white bikes so I'm having him do white, but leaving classic style ovals around the the lettering, and some grey, but all gloss. You must have painstakingly masked and cut around the existing blue, cheers to that.

    Frame arrived, beautiful but the color!

    Size Bought
    5` 9"
    160 lbs

    Mine arrived a few days ago (size Med. I'm 5'8 1/2. Frame was beautifully packed and quickly shipped. It's absolutely a gorgeous frame, and I can't wait to build and ride. The thing I will note is the color. The light grey one in the pictures is not what I received, the grey is dark grey like primer, not white'ish like in the pictures. Update:05/23/2020 frame back from paint, added pictures, now I can start building.

    Can you post a picture of that? A darker grey sounds better than the whiter finish on the stock photos.

    I agree. It’s primer gray. I seriously contemplated about sending it back but given what I do for a living I did the next best thing, I painted it.

    Ben it just depends on what you like, I like white, that's why I ordered this color based on the photos being so light. It's very mat finish and I prefer gloss so I'm having it painted gloss white keeping borders around the grey and blue. I'll try to post before and afters when I get it back. Looks good Tad

    One could easily just clear coat it and it would look really good too. I just feel like the dirt mud and road grime with stick to the mat finish too much.

    can you post a pic of the primer grey frame?


    I found on Ridley's website (Link https://www.ridley-bikes.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/X-Trail-Carbon.pdf) than from 2016 onwards they switched from the front 15x100mm axle to a 12x100mm axle. Could you please confirm the dimensions of the front axle? Thanks!


    Aside from color and price, are there any other differences between Ridley X-Trail carbon and X-trail limited edition framesets,? Also what are the weights of X-trail carbon and X-trail limited edition?

    only thing I caught was the X-Trail Limited has a 15x100mm front axle, instead of the 12x100 that's on the X-Trail, geometry appears to be identical. Any missing facts would be helpful from Backcountry/Comp.Cyclist...not even any info on Ridley's website...
