The Ridley X-Fire frame is made from 24 ton, high modulus, unidirectional carbon fiber. What does that mean? It means that the bike is stiff, lightweight, and ready for action, but without being so stiff or brittle that it's uncomfortable to ride. A tapered headtube and PF30 bottom bracket add stiffness and rigidity in just the right places to eliminate frame flex and increase power transfer. Internal cable routing helps keep mud from fouling up your shifting, and also keeps the cables out of the way when you shoulder your bike to get over the barriers. The 4ZA Oryx full carbon fiber disc fork is super stiff, and is optimized for exceptional handling in all conditions, and includes mounting tabs for disc rotors.
But a great bike without great components is nothing. That's why Ridley spec'ed the X-Fire with the amazing Shimano Ultegra 6800 11-speed drivetrain, with an FSA Gossamer cyclocross crank and Avid BB-7 disc brakes. That means you get 11-speeds with which to dominate the competition, plus Shimano's fabled durability and reliability, a stiff alloy crankset with BB30 spindle for improved stiffness and 46/36 chainrings, and the industry-leading stopping power of Avid mechanical disc brakes.
Topping it off is a bevy of components from Ridley's house brand 4Za, including a lightweight saddle, alloy stem, handlebars and stem, and a set of 4Za Cirrus aerodynamic wheels with 6-bolt disc hubs wrapped up in super-premium Challenge Grifo Plus knobbie tires.
