Ridley X-Trail C45 Bicycle - Unisex


See available road bikes


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 36C tires to hammer the cyclocross circuit or a group ride by swapping out tires or wheels. Lightweight and smooth, the SRAM Rival 1 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 Cirrus stems, handlebars and seatpost are race ready
  • SRAM Rival 1x11 gruppo yields precise shifting in a lightweight package
  • SRAM Rival hydraulic disc brakes provide great power and modulation in all weather
  • The 46T chainring paired with a big 11-42T cassette means a wide gear range for every kind of ride
  • Thru-axles front and rear provide outstanding stiffness, tracking and quick wheel changes
  • 36C Clement X'Plor MSO tires handle the rigours of gravel grinding or cyclocross
  • DT Swiss C 1800 Spline wheels features a 22mm internal width for a great fit with trail ready tires
  • Hidden fender mounts add all-weather 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
