Ridley Ignite SLX (New) GX Carbon Mountainbike Bike - 2023

The Ignite SLX is the top model in our hardtail, cross country mountain bike range.

This MTB features an extremely ingenious carbon lay-up which is key in achieving such amazing riding characteristics that you'll feel from the first pedal stroke. At the front end of the bike we use Toray Carbon with high tensile strength. At the rear, we opted for a different carbon lay-up to maximize vertical flex. The increased steering angle (trail) provides an extra stable riding feel. Our R&D also gave the seat stays an asymmetrical, oval shape to maximize stiffness. We don't let a single Watt go to waste!

The result is an Ignite SLX MTB that's light, stiff and agile. Take those flowing singletracks and steep slopes faster than anyone else…for the win!

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!

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.

Ridley Essential 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 Essential Series, we use two types of carbon: 24T and 30T. The Elite Series, though, goes one step further and also uses 50T and 60T carbon. With the addition of these two carbons, combined with great effort, we can get the weight extremely low without compromising comfort and stiffness.

The Essential Series directly benefits from the carbon layup knowledge gained through the creation of the Elite Series. This means that our Essential Series reaches that same level of stiffness and comfort, albeit a slight bit heavier due to the use of 24T and 30T only which require more layers compared to 50T and 60T to reach the desired stiffness.
