Ridley Ignite A GX1 Mountain Bike – 2019

The Ignite A GX1 is Ridley’s lightweight 29er hardtail mountain bike designed for XC competition. Made from triple-butted hydroformed 6061 alloy, it’s very stiff and responsive yet lightweight. Ridley have incorporated double pass flat welding for increased strength and a clean look, and a full-carbon rigid fork significantly decreases weight while ensuring comfort on rough terrain. The Ignite A GX1 can certainly handle the rigors of top racing, but is equally adept at playing on the trails in your local forest.

If you’re looking to improve your speed and handling skills, the Ignite is your answer. Excellent power transfer due to its built-in stiffness. Its tapered head tube increases front end stiffness for optimal steering and control with secure Thru-axles adding to its stiffness. To build in comfort, Ridley have we’ve worked meticulously on their tubing design to create the ultimate lightweight, agile hardtail that cruises at high speeds over the most arduous terrain. Compatible with both mechanical and electronic shifting, internal cable routing keeps the cables clean, while giving the Ignite A GX a tidy look.

Peter A great bike for riding on the road and dry trails with the supplied tyres. Plenty of clearance for bigger tyres if you want to use it off road (somewhat limited by the skinny rims though). I don't like the foam grips and I'll probably change the bars and stem eventually. Feels at least as quick as my CX bike.
Mr Isaacs Excellent handling, versatlile and responsive lightweight XC MTB, and with good kit so excellent value.
Mr Korosec Excellent bike. Very light, very stiff and responsive.
john Superb piece of kit and lighter than my road bike, very quick off the mark with smooth running tyres for road work, though you would probably want something more beefy for regular offroad trips. Good quality parts fitted only slight grumble would be the noise from the internal cabling against the downtube. Great value.
