X-Trail Carbon Frameset

All-road adventuring is as popular as ever, evolving from a niche discipline into a popular mainstream activity that has opened up a whole new perspective on cycling. Those of us that want to hammer out some miles and explore new landscapes in car-free solitude are discovering the benefits of riding a bike that excels on mixed surfaces. Rather than limiting yourself to tarmac, you can expand your rides to include dirt roads, singletrack, and everything in between with the X-Trail Carbon Frameset from Ridley. Ridley has long been a contender in the European cylocross curcuit as well as the pro peloton, so their experience with drop-bar bikes on- and off-road is undeniable, and the X-Trail is the result of that.

Despite its longer gravel bike footprint and slightly more relaxed geometry, it's important to stress that the X-Trail does not have a sluggish ride quality. Ridley shapes the X-Trail's frame using ultralight unidirectional carbon, equipping the frame to offer quick accelerations and a stiff, responsive ride for everything from weekend bikepacking trips to off-road segments in gravel races. Subtly asymmetrical, the Oryx Disc fork has a reinforced left leg to allow it to more capably handle the torsional forces applied by disc brakes, and with a 15 x 100mm thru axle in front and a 12 x 142mm in the rear, the frame achieves confidence-inspiring stiffness throughout.

As we alluded to above, the X-Trail is a medley of frame geometries. The result resembles a road bike more than a classic cyclocross bike like the X-Night; it has a lower bottom bracket, shorter chainstays, and a stack/reach combination that puts riders in a position that's more comfortable for long rides, rather than a slammed-down, forward-leaning race position. In contrast to its road racing frames, Ridley extends the X-Trail's head tube by 10mm, bringing riders into a more upright position to accommodate longer training and touring rides rather than racing exclusively. It's still slightly more aggressive than the Fenix, but unlike its endurance road counterpart, the X-Trail is designed to be run with tires up to 36mm wide on more rugged terrain.

does the bike come with fender mounts? It doesn't look like it from the pics but can't tell for sure. Also, in reality would a 38mm tire clear?

Brian, I have this bike and bought it as the gravel scene started getting white hot about 1.5 years ago. I've regretted that I didn't buy a gravel bike with more rear tire clearance and so now am bumming stuck with limited options riding steep technical descents. Some 38s will work but many won't like the Schwalbe G1 Bite in 38C. This is not for the rider looking for a supple ride, although its a very high quality frameset- can't complain about that.
