See available road bikes


What kind of bike can hang in on club rides, gravel grind and race cyclocross? 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 36C tires, for hammering the cyclocross circuit. The light and silky Shimano Ultegra gruppo has a versatile gear range. Powerful hydraulic disc brakes provide stopping power with nuanced modulation regardless of the conditions. And a host of smart details: shock absorbing asymmetric rear triangle, hidden fender mounts, fork scuff guard to prevent damage when swapping wheels – make this package a winner:

  • High-modulus uni-directional carbon fibre frame is light, stiff, comfortable and durable enough to handle the rigours of varied riding
  • Rear triangle design features uniquely shaped individual 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 carbon fibre fork features an carbon steertube and integrated scuff guard
  • 11-speed Shimano Ultegra gruppo yields precise shifting in a lightweight package
  • Shimano hydraulic disc brakes provide power and modulation in any weather
  • 4ZA Cirrus stem, handlebars and seatpost are designed to perform
  • Compact 50/34 crank and 11-32t cassette offers a wide gear range
  • 12mm thru-axles front and rear provide outstanding stiffness, tracking and quick wheel changes
  • Fulcrum Racing 5 DB wheels are durable enough to handle every weird adventure
  • 36C Clement X'Plor MSO tires are designed for everything that Mother Nature has to throw at you
  • 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
