About Ignite A

The Ignite A hardtail MTB effortlessly turns singletracks into your own personal playground. As part of the Hydro Series, the frame is made of high quality 6061 triple-butted, hydroformed, double-pass flat welded aluminium that we shape and weld with care and sustainability. The tube walls are thinner in the center and become slightly thicker towards the ends. All these special techniques come together to create an incredibly balanced, lightweight yet stiff frame.

In addition, this MTB has a boosted rear axle and an updated race geometry. When combining all these features with many others carried over from Ridley's years of expertise, you get an Ignite A that delivers a very responsive, stable, confidently playful cycling experience.

Hydro tubing

Our aluminium bikes go through an extremely careful, high-tech process before rolling out of our Belgian assembly line as complete bikes.

We select a 6061-T6 aluminium alloy commonly used in the aircraft industry as it scores very well on stiffness, metal fatigue, weight and welding precision. All our tubes are triple-butted where central wall thickness is 3x thinner than at the ends. This minimizes weight and maximizes stiffness.

The tubes are also hydroformed - a process in which water under pressure gives the tubes the desired shape, without potential damage that mechanical shaping can cause.

Lastly, we use a “double-pass flat weld” in crucial places for extra strength and clean finish - an absolute must for modern aluminium bikes.

Internal Cables

All cables run through the inside of the frame on our mountain bikes. Not only does this reduce their risk of damage during cycling, but it also has a positive effect on maintenance and service life of all components.

In addition, with no external cables, there is less mud build-up to keep the bike light. It also wins you watts due to improved aerodynamics and ensures for a clean, sleek-looking machine.

MTB Geometry

Our cross country mountain bike delivers the perfect balance of responsive handling and extra confidence at high speeds.

For both our hardtails and full suspensions we've chosen a slightly sharper seat angle. This gives you a more compact seating position for more efficient pedaling while seated.

By combining a larger head angle with a (slightly) shorter wheelbase, you get an aggressively handling mountain bike. Yet you feel that the MTB lets you to take fast descents with full confidence due to its slightly longer rear triangle.

The geometry of the Ridley MTBs is truly designed to maximize your pleasure. Whether your preference is ultra-technical trails or fast flowing surfaces, our MTBs are always ready for your adventures!
