While the X-Night is becoming a classic in the Cyclocross scene, it still is one of the most advanced bikes in the field.If you have high expectations or standards about a Cyclocross bike, it is probably because the X-Night has set them.

Cyclocross that is our DNA. Cycle through the mud, cycle explosive slopes, so hard that the mud spreads along all sides. At Ridley we remain true to a real cyclocross geometry. Made to perform.
The X-Night SL Disc is the parade horse of the Ridley Mud Devils.

X-Night Frame

A bike made for wet mud strips

A high-end cyclocross frame with a competitive geometry, further reduced to 850 grams. Thanks to the new upgrade, cable weighting ensured weight gain. Every week, the riders of Marlux-Napoleon Games compete on this bike for victory. This model is therefore the absolute favourite of any rider with an ambition for himself and his material. The light weight and internal cable guidance make the bike easy to shoulder. Both forks are fitted with 12mm steering boxes. This extra lateral stiffness allows any rider to float through the wettest mud strips.

Ridley Carbon

We can write books about carbon and how it should be used, but we will keep it simple. Our R&D Department has done some head-breaking thinking and hours of testing to come up with the use of the right types of carbon on the right spots on the bike. We create the perfect bike for every terrain by applying the right shapes and the right stiffness and rigidity where needed, for example at the bottom bracket and the head tube. While the rear stays and the seatpost need to be able to damp vibrations.
