Ridley X-Trail C30 Bicycle - Unisex



Show Description

What kind of bike can hang in on club rides, gravel grind and race cyclocross all in one weekend? Until now, nothing, but that's changed with the arrival of the X-Trail. Incredibly versatile, the X-Trail geometry combines the nimbleness of a cyclocross ride with the high-speed stability and stiffness of a road bike, so you can ride pretty much anywhere. Massive clearance allows up to 38C tires to hammer the cyclocross circuit or a group ride by swapping out tires or wheels. Lightweight and silky smooth, the 11-speed Shimano 105 gruppo is a performer with a versatile gear range. Powerful Shimano hydraulic disc brakes provide stopping power with nuanced modulation regardless of the conditions. A host of smart details make this package a winner: an asymmetric rear triangle for shock absorption and stiffness, hidden fender mounts for everyday usability and a scuff guard on the fork to prevent damage when swapping wheels.

  • High-modulus unidirectional carbon fiber frame is light, stiff, comfortable and durable enough to handle the rigours of varied riding.
  • Rear triangle features uniquely shaped tubes for maximum stiffness, low weight and a comfortable degree of flex.
  • Bridgeless seat stay design improves tire clearance and allows the seat stay to independently flex for added shock absorption.
  • Oversized tapered head tube increases front end stiffness and steering precision.
  • Asymmetric fork features a carbon steertube and integrated scuff guard.
  • Pressfit 86 bottom bracket results in excellent power transfer and high-speed stability.
  • Shimano 105 11-speed gruppo yields precise shifting in a lightweight package.
  • Shimano hydraulic disc brakes provide outstanding power and modulation in all weather.
  • Compact 50/34 crank and huge 11-32t cassette means a gear range ready for every kind of ride.
  • Thru-axles front and rear provide outstanding stiffness, tracking and quick wheel changes.
  • DT Swiss R24 wheels are tubeless ready and durable enough to handle every weird adventure.
  • 38C tires handle the rigours of gravel grinding or cyclocross.
  • Hidden fender mounts add touring versatility.
  • 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 its frame construction, race technology, tube profiles, and its own branded component line, 4ZA.
