The story behind our Gravel bikes | #Kanzo

Ridley was into gravel bikes even before it was a big ‘thing’. When we launched our first-generation X-Trails we didn’t know the segment would be called ‘Gravel’, so we named it ‘All-Road’.

The Noah has gone #FromMcEwenToEwan

From Robbie McEwen to Caleb Ewan. Our Noah has come a long way. Launched for the first time in the 2006 Tour de France, with an immediate Green Jersey podium in Paris.

The story behind the development of the Noah Fast

Designing the fastest road bike with the best fit ever. That was the goal of the prestigious project named ‘Noah Fast’. With this in mind, our R&D engineers set out to give it their absolute best effort to investigate the borders of aerodynamics. This would require our engineers to create something new. Something better. Something […]

#thefinalbreakaway: Recap of a bikepacking trip on the X-Trail Carbon

Pro cyclists travel the world for cycling. They train, they race and they’re always on their bike. But never without a strictly predefined schedule in mind. Working towards goals and preparing for the next big race they meticulously plan their daily habits in function of their training scheme. But make no mistake, sometimes they would […]
