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 with its PF30 bottom bracket and excels with Ridley’s race-proven geometry. For the wheels, hand-built Velocity hoops with Clement PDX tires give you the traction you crave, and ample tire clearance lets you churn through the slop. Internal cable routing keeps the Ultegra drivetrain firing off shifts and the full carbon fork with a 1.5-inch tapered steerer changes direction with surgical precision. Finally, Hayes disc brakes, Ritchey bars, stem and seatpost round out the great parts package.
