The Kanzo Speed is Ridley’s answer to those who want to stay ahead of the pack in one of the many gravel races that have sprung up all over the world. One such race is Kansas’ 200-mile Dirty Kanza, in which participants battle it out to be the first to cross the finish line. The 36-mm tire clearance is more race-oriented, but leaves enough space for different setups, with ample space built into the frame to fit mudguards.
Thanks to its stable geometry, this bike rides like a dream in those long, straighter sections of trails. Hidden rack and fender mounts on the frame and fork give the bike a clean look when not in use.
Thru-axles in the frame and fork add stiffness to the bike-wheel connection. Flat-mount disc brakes ensure you have control of the bike in all conditions – both on- and off-road.
