Ridley X-Bow All Road Disc Bicycle - Unisex


See available road bikes


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.
