Coming to a podium near you is the X-Fire Disc, Ridley’s full-carbon cyclocross bike that brings professional road racing quality to riders with a penchant for mud, barriers, and run-ups. Designed in Belgium, where 'cross is pretty much the national pastime, the X-Fire is super stiff for those out-of-the-saddle sprints and excels with Ridley’s race-proven geometry. For the wheels, Alex hoops with Challenge Grifo tires give you the traction you crave, and ample tire clearance lets you churn through the slop. Internal cable routing keeps the Shimano 105 derailleurs shifting smooth, and the full carbon fork with a tapered steerer changes direction with surgical precision. Finally, Hayes CX-5 disc brakes, 4ZA bars, stem and seatpost round out the great parts package.
