This versatile frame is also capable of adapting for use as a winter/training bike as it comes fitted with rear rack mounts and also front/rear mudguard mounts. Thanks to the cross geometry it's a very comfortable ride both on and off road and caters for the rider wanting that bit more from a bike. The Shimano Sora groupset is reliable and mixes well with the compact FSA chainset (50/34).
The X-Bow rolls on a nice pair of Ridley's 4ZA wheels giving you good quality bearing life and smoothness as well as good rigidity for sprints and handling.
While the finishing kit (4ZA) is mostly in-house to keep the price sharp, Ridley still opted for good quality tyres from top tyre brand Challenge.

About Cyclocross Bikes
Cyclocross bikes are similar to road bike, they are lightweight, with narrow tyres and drop handlebars. However, they also share characteristics with mountain bicycles in that they utilize knobby treaded tyres for traction, and cantilever style brakes for the clearance needed due to muddy conditions. They have to be lightweight because competitors need to carry their bicycle to overcome barriers or slopes too steep to climb in the saddle. The sight of competitors struggling up a muddy slope with bicycles on their shoulders is the classic image of the sport, although un-ridable sections are generally a very small fraction of the race distance. Cross bikes also make good winter bikes or commuters, their frames have plenty of clearance which allows for mudguards, while the upright angles make them agile around town, meaning you can hit the trails at the weekend and then fit some road tyres and commute on them during the week.
