Show Description

Manufactured from high quality, triple-butted hydroformed aluminum, it's your gateway to cyclocross, mud and other obstacles. Fitted with Avid BB7 disc brakes for well-modulated stopping power, the X-Bow delivers an uncomplicated, bike for road riding, speeding over grass tracks and navigating off-road challenges. Burly Grifo tires give you solid traction and keep you grounded on sketchy corners. The saddle, stem, and seat post are provided by Ridley's in-house component team to keep the performance exceptional and the price point accessible. Cross-specific geometry puts an emphasis on handling and control. The bottom bracket has a shorter drop for pedal clearance when your tires and rims are buried, and a flat top tube for easier shouldering. Road oriented gearing makes it a great option for road riders interested in giving the CX world a try.

  • Triple-butted hydroformed 7005 series T6 aluminum frame.
  • Oversized headtube offers increased surface area adds rigidity and dissipates vibration.
  • Flat sections on seatstays add comfort, dissipate force and absorb road vibrations.
  • Top-routed cables make for "cable free grip" and easier handling through the obstacles.
  • 4ZA CX wheels have Shimano hubs and spokes, and ALEX XC23 cross rims.
  • Shimano components and Tiagra cassette deliver quality, reliability and efficient power transfer from rider to road.
  • Avid BB7 brakes have outstanding lever feel, catch instantly, and boast easily controlled modulation.
  • Equipped with fenders and compatible with a rear carrier to transition the bike into a winter commuter.
  • Compatible with mechanical groupsets only.
  • This model is not equipped with pedals.
  • Bikes are covered by MEC's Rocksolid Guarantee and Bike Service Agreement. You can bring your bike to any MEC Bike Shop for free adjustments and minor maintenance for a year after purchase.
  • Ridley was born in Flanders, Belgium, a region infamous for harsh cycling conditions. Against this backdrop Ridley engineers, tests, and refines their frame construction, race technology, tube profiles, and their own branded component line, 4ZA.
