Only a couple of months after Ridley launched the Ridley X-Night cyclocross bike and barely a few days after SRAM officially unveiled its new Red 22 Hydraulic Road Dis (HRD) groupset, Ridley combines both for the consumer market.

"Our latest X-Night has set a new standard in frames used for CX. SRAM is now doing the same for groupsets with the introduction of their Red 22 with hydraulic disc brakes. We have combined these two evolutions into a real Revolution within reach of cyclocross lovers", says Jochen Bessemans, PR & Marketing Manager at Ridley.

When developing the new X-Night, Ridley's R&D department already had a disc version in mind. "We worked closely together with the professional riders of the Telenet-Fidea cyclocross team and offered them X-Night Disc prototypes for testing", says Jochen Bessemans, "but we were waiting to bring it to the market until Road/ CX disc brakes entered the hydraulic era. Hydraulic disc brakes offer more braking power and better modulation, also under extreme conditions, and are therefore an ideal choice on the X-Night."

The X-Night with SRAM Red 22 HRD will be available at Ridley dealers in June.
