The 2016 Ridley X Bow 10 Disc 105 Complete Cyclocross Bike is Ridley's answer to riders looking for a bike that can handle everything from the occasional cross race to touring scenic gravel roads or just navigating chip seal and potholes on a cross town commute. With race worthy components and integrated fender and carrier mounts, this bike brings a heap of versatility to any quiver with a price tag that won't break your bank account. The X Bow is fashioned from triple butted 7005 T6 alloy for a durable yet snappy ride wherever the front wheel leads you. For race days you can leave the fenders and panniers at home, and bring them along for the ride at the following weekend's b road adventure. The frame is outfitted with a Zornyc Disc fork featuring an aluminum steerer tube and carbon fiber legs for a solid ride that dampens energy zapping vibrations along the way. Wide tire clearance and disc brakes mean this bike is up for adventure in rain or shine, with consistent braking in even the muddiest conditions. Ridley builds up the X Bow 10 Disc with the surprisingly capable Shimano 105 11 speed drivetrain and TRP Spyre C mechanical disc brake system, featuring bits of technology from the top end Dura Ace and Ultegra groups for reliable, precise gear shifts and consistent braking in even the most inclement weather. The FSA Gossamer MegaExo crankset features a 4636t chainring combination that pairs with a Shimano 105 11 28t cassette to provide a wide range of gear choices to tackle any type of ride 'cross, road, or gravel. A 4ZA cockpit controls the ride, while a set of Fulcrum Racing Sport DB wheels wrapped in Challenge Grifo Plus tires keep you rolling smoothly to your destination.
