Ridley X-Trail Ultegra Complete Bike - 2017 description:
All-surface adventuring is having a moment, building from a niche discipline and morphing into a popular mainstream activity that has opened up a whole new perspective on cycling. This is unquestionably a positive shift in the industry that's getting more people on bikes and generating more available bike options, but we also understand that the sudden popularity has left some of us searching for a way to find our own unique ride to stand out among the crowds.

The result resembles a road bike more than a classic cyclocross bike like the X-Night; it has a lower bottom bracket, shorter chainstays, and a stack/reach combination that leaves riders in less of a shoulder-intensive, slammed racing position. In contrast to its road racing frames, Ridley extends th...
