The uber-popular all-carbon X-Fire is now available in a disc brake version for more precise speed control and much shorter stopping distances. It features disc brake tabs, a tapered head tube, internal cables and 135mm rear spacing.
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.
