Ridley X-Night 105 with hydro brakes - Unisex
If you've been dreaming of mud, rain and coming-in-too-hot dismounts all summer long, the X-Night is for you. Born in Belgium and proven by professionals, this bike leverages a host of cross-specific details to deliver a stellar CX machine. The shortened top tube results in precise cornering when navigating tight switchbacks or low-speed technical lines. Raised bottom bracket provides ample room for clearing obstacles without the risk of pedal strikes or terrifying BB clunks. For ultra-technical training rides or races, intentionally flexy seatstays help reduce vibration and chudder without sacrificing stiffness. Cross-specific details include top tube diameters, sized for each frame, that accommodate different hand sizes, and internal cable routing for snag-free shouldering when clearing obstacles or crushing run-ups. As an added bonus, this CX weapon is future-proofed for electronic shifting compatibility.
