Show Description

The ultimate aluminum cyclocross hammering machine. With a cross-specific frame and powerful TRP mechanical disc brakes, the X-Ride is ready for whatever you're willing to throw at it. A shortened top tube results in precise cornering when navigating tight switchbacks or low-speed technical lines, while the raised bottom bracket assists obstacle hopping. The X-Ride features clever cross-specific details like frame size-specific top tube diameters to accommodate different hand sizes for comfortable hauling, and internal cable routing for snag-free shouldering while clearing obstacles or crushing run-ups. As an added bonus, this race machine is compatible with electronic shifting systems.

  • 6061 aluminum frame is lightweight and durable.
  • 12mm thru-axle front and rear provides the stiffness required for powerful disc brakes.
  • Shortened top tube and raised bottom bracket for the technical rigours of CX.
  • Full carbon fibre fork features a 12x100mm axle and helps bring the weight down.
  • GXP threaded bottom bracket is durable and easy to maintain.
  • Tapered head tube improves stiffness while saving weight.
  • SRAM Rival crank with 42T is paired with a wide range 11-32T cassette.
  • SRAM Rival 11-speed drivetrain provides precise shifting in a lightweight package with an ultra-comfortable lever feel.
  • TRP Spyre C mechanical disc brakes provide big power and nuanced modulation in all conditions.
  • 4ZA Stratos stems and handlebars are designed with race performance in mind.
  • Tubeless-ready wheels are designed to survive the rigours of cross, training and hard winter riding.
  • Clement MXP tires are solid all-rounders for racing and training.
  • Internally routed cables are aerodynamic, shoulder-friendly and compatible with electronic or mechanical setups.
  • 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 its own branded component line, 4ZA.

The hub affects a bike’s rolling efficiency. Internally geared hubs require significantly less maintenance.


Cassettes with a smaller range allow you to go faster; a bigger range makes climbing hills easier.
