Ridley X Trail C40 105 Complete Bike 2017

Few brands enjoy Ridley's dominance on the European cyclocross scene, but those tight geometries and steep angles aren't so necessary in the wide open landscapes of the new world. The X Trail C40 105 Complete Bike adjusts accordingly, sitting long and slack for stability across everything from North Western chip seal to Kansas gravel. It's built up with Shimano's 105 drivetrain and a set of 105 equivalent hydraulic disc brakes, which when combined with that big, stable geometry makes the X Trail a far cry from the compact cantilever frames that come to mind when we think of traditional 'cross. It's still perfectly suited to the sand pits and run ups of fall, but it transitions equally well to the weeklong, pannier fueled gravel epics of spring. Ridley shapes the X Trail C30's frame using ultralight unidirectional carbon, equipping the frame to offer quick accelerations and a stiff, responsive ride for everything from pannier laden weekend trips to off road grinduro segments. The Oryx Disc fork is reinforced on the left leg to allow it to more efficiently bear twisting forces applied by disc brakes, and with a 12 x 100mm thru axle in front and a 12 x 142mm in the rear, the frame achieves confidence inspiring stiffness throughout. The X Trail is something of a melting pot of frame geometries, but the end result resembles a road bike more than a classic cyclocross bike like the X Night. It's got a lower bottom bracket, shorter chainstays, and a stackreach combination that leaves riders in less of a shoulder intensive, slammed racing position. In contrast to its road racing frames, Ridley extended the X Trail's head tube by 10mm, bringing riders into a more upright position to accommodate longer training rides rather than racing exclusively. It's only slightly more aggressive than the Fenix, in fact, but unlike its endurance road cousin, the X Trail is designed to be run with tires up to 40mm.
