Show Description

What kind of bike can hang in on club rides, gravel grind and race cyclocross all in one weekend? The incredibly versatile Ridley X-Trail. Its geometry combines the nimbleness of a cyclocross ride with the high-speed stability and stiffness of a road bike. Massive clearance allows up to 38C tires to hammer the cyclocross circuit or a group ride by swapping out tires or wheels. Lightweight and smooth, the Shimano gruppo is a performer with a versatile gear range. Powerful hydraulic disc brakes provide stopping power with nuanced modulation regardless of the conditions. Smart details make this package a winner: 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 uni-directional carbon fibre 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 steer tube.
  • 4ZA Stratos stems, handlebars and seatpost are designed with race performance in mind.
  • 11-speed Shimano 105 gruppo yields precise shifting in a lightweight package.
  • Hydraulic disc brakes provide outstanding power and modulation in all weather.
  • Shimano Compact 50/34 crank and 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.
  • Clement X'Plor MSO tires handle the rigours of gravel grinding or cyclocross.
  • Alex DRAW 1.9s rims with Formula hubs are durable enough to handle every weird adventure.
  • 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 their frame construction, race technology, tube profiles, and their own branded component line, 4ZA.
