This X-Fire is built to order and designed for the rider wanting to get into cyclo-cross racing with the potential to compete at a very high level. We start with the 2014 X-Fire disc frameset and outfit it with Shimano's new 6800 group set that has front shifting almost too fast to be believed. Disc brakes are the highly sought after TRP HY-RD with the simplicity of a cable actuated adjustment with hydraulic braking power - you will be able to power slide this bike through the corners. Ritchey WCS alloy components round out the seatpost and cockpit.
What makes this bike an amazing deal is the two wheelsets included. There is a Notubes Iron Cross Comp for training that can be run tubeless or with an inner tube. We set it up tubeless with Vittoria Cross EVO XG Pro TNT tires. The race wheels will make the pros jealous - Zipp 303 Firecrest tubulars with Challenge Grifo tubular tires.
The Ridley X-Fire is one of the most exciting carbon fiber Cyclocross bikes to date. Not a company to rest on their laurels, Ridley took the World Champion pedigree X-Fire and refined a few key details. The most significant change next to the disc-brake option is the internal cable routing. This means the cables won't collect mud or get in the way when it comes time to carry. Full-length housing also keeps out potential water, dirt and corrosion and makes cable replacement easy.
The full carbon frame features the requisite oversize down tube and bottom bracket for exceptional power transfer but has the low weigh and ride quality need to win world championships. A matching full carbon fork (with exceptional cosmetics we must say) rotates on a 1.5" lower bearing for rock-solid handling and shudder-free breaking.
