About Raft XC

The Raft XC is a full suspension MTB with 100mm travel. Its 100mm travel rear suspension is designed with performance in mind, a remote lock out lets you sprint with direct power transfer to the rear wheel.

The agile steering and steep seat angle guarantee razor sharp handling and good power transfer. Thanks to the longer wheelbase and slacker head angle you won’t lose any time on the downhills either.

The Raft XC has a lightweight carbon fiber frame that has mounting points for 2 bottle cages inside the front triangle. Other mounting points allow you to carry tools or other accessories such as a top tube pack on the bike.

Ridley Elite Carbon

Our carbon is manufactured by world market leader: Toray. The Japanese manufacturer is leader in every aspect of carbon development and supplier to absolute top world brands in many industries. For the Elite Series, we use every type of available carbon: 60T, 50T, 30T and 24T.

The higher the 'Ton', the higher the tensile strength of the carbon fibers and the more intensive the development and processing. With 60T, you may need fewer layers of carbon to achieve the desired stiffness as well as the lightest possible bike, but if you built the whole frame with 60T you'd have a very uncomfortable, over-responsive ride. Hence, a mix of 24T, 30T, 50T and 60T carbon is essential as each carbon serves a certain purpose in perfectly balancing stiffness, weight and comfort.

Each bike's unique carbon mix is dependent on its purpose, such as climbing, endurance, etc. In addition, each area of each frame requires its own unique mix depending on its function such as to provide comfort or stiffness. It is here, in the unique carbon compositions, where Ridley makes the difference!

As all our professional teams ride our Ridley Elite Series bikes - including the likes of Tim Wellens, Caleb Ewan or Thomas De Gendt, this means that your bike is treated with the exact same care as theirs.

Suspension Setup

Made For 100 up to 120mm suspension

We chose to make the geometry suitable for different kind of riders,

A 100mm setup makes It easier to maneuver and give a more plush ride on the trail

As for the 120mm improves the handling on higher speed when riding over bumps and rocks and down country terrain.

Bikepacking Optimized Frame Mounts

The frame has different mounts on the downtube, under the downtube and the seattube. Depending on the frame model, this can be 2, 3 or 4 mounts. These mounts will give you the opportunity to adapt your setup to the use of the bike: position your bottles in combination with a frame bag, using a toolmount in combination with a bottlecage. We have spent a lot of time to determine the optimal position for these mounts on the frame so you can optimize your personal setup

Dropper Post Ready

A dropper post is one of the biggest cycling innovations in the last decade. It has made riding all types of bikes easier, safer, and more efficient. The main benefit of a dropper post is increased safety while riding the lever system allows you to quickly move the saddle out of the way when approaching descents or trail obstacles. With the saddle out of the way, you’re able to be in the appropriate riding position to handle upcoming variations in terrain without fear of your saddle pitching you over the handlebars.

UDH Hanger

SRAM has a universal solution for all rear-derailleurs .

As stated by SRAM, the new UDH hanger will be available from most local shops.

It can be hard to find the right hanger from a small local shop.

Sometimes this means that you’ll have to call it a day.

But the UDH hanger wants to make this frustrating experience a problem of the past!
