Ridley Takes On the Mud and the Barriers with New X-Night RS Cyclocross Bike

While all things rugged and off-road tend to be focused on gravel these days, to the rejoice of cyclocross-ers, Ridley has decided to take on the mud and barriers with the launch of its new cyclocross bike dubbed the X-Night RS.

Relying on the Belgian brand’s 20-plus years of experience in the CX racing area, the X-Night RS capitalizes on an up-to-date, fully integrated cockpit, as well as revamped aerodynamic profiling, resulting in what Ridley says “sets a new standard” in cyclocross.

“The X-Night RS is specially designed for cyclocross, made for those who want to navigate through mud and sand as quickly as possible. The aerodynamic tube shapes are based on those of the successful Falcn RS, and the steep angle of the head tube and shorter wheelbase create a geometry typical of cyclocross. The flattened bottom of the head tube allows the bike to be shouldered. With the D-shaped seatpost, the saddle will always remain in the correct position. A higher bottom bracket, on the other hand, ensures maneuverability through the muddied field. Also, thanks to the additional space on the rear fork, mud will easily clear away. With attachment points for bottle holders, a removable front derailleur clamp, and a universal derailleur hanger, every detail has been considered,” Ridley points out.

The X-Night RS is available across four sizes (S, M, L and XL) as a standalone frameset for €3,999.00, or as a complete bike with builds starting at €6,499.00.
