Ridley Probe RS TXX SL Carbon Mountainbike Bike - 2023

Super lightweight frame, modern progressive geometry, direct power transfer, the Probe RS redefines performance!

RS, 2 letters that define this bike, RS is short for Racing Sport. This bike has one purpose, to be the best in class!

The heart of the Probe RS is the EU made Elite series carbon fiber frame. No stone was left unturned to achieve a crazy light frame weight of 760 grams combined with stiffness and strength in all the right places.

With the progressive geometry you can ride steep terrain with ease and confidence. No matter if it goes up or down, the Probe RS has got you covered. The low weight and immediate pedal response will make you laugh out loud with every pedal stroke.

You can use a dropper post on the Probe RS to make it even more versatile and adapt it to the trails you ride or the course you are racing on.

Please Note: Images are for illustration purposes only, please see specification below.

EU Made Frame

At Ridley bikes it starts all here with us in Paal, Belgium.

We developed a frame that is drawn from scratch.

Together with a European partner we managed to produce frames in Europe.

This benefits that we have more control over production and future developments. 

EU Made Frame
Multiple Frame Mounts

Multiple mounting points for 2 bottle cages inside the front triangle. Other mounting points allow you to carry tools or other accessories on the bike to carry over the load that you normally store in your back pocket.

Advanced Position Geometry (APG)

The geometry is fully adapted to the intended use of the bicycle and the terrain.

The geometry is incredibly versatile and it makes the bike the perfect partner in

crime for all your races and offroad escapades.

Advanced Position Geometry (APG)
Suspension Setup

Made For 100 up to 120mm suspension

We chose to make the geometry suitable for different kind of riders,

A 100mm setup makes It easier to maneuver and give a more plush ride on the trail

As for the 120mm improves the handling on higher speed when riding over bumps and rocks and down country terrain.

Suspension Setup
UDH Hanger

The universal derailleur hanger (UDH) is the new standard in the cycling world. Not only is this derailleur hanger compatible with all modern shifting groups, it also protects against derailleur breakage and chain drops. In mountain biking, UDH has long been very common, and Ridley is bringing the technology to other segments as well.

Ridley Elite 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 Elite Series, we use every type of available carbon: 60T, 50T, 30T and 24T.

The higher the 'Ton', the higher the tensile strength of the carbon fibers and the more intensive the development and processing. With 60T, you may need fewer layers of carbon to achieve the desired stiffness as well as the lightest possible bike, but if you built the whole frame with 60T you'd have a very uncomfortable, over-responsive ride. Hence, a mix of 24T, 30T, 50T and 60T carbon is essential as each carbon serves a certain purpose in perfectly balancing stiffness, weight and comfort.

Each bike's unique carbon mix is dependent on its purpose, such as climbing, endurance, etc. In addition, each area of each frame requires its own unique mix depending on its function such as to provide comfort or stiffness. It is here, in the unique carbon compositions, where Ridley makes the difference!

As all our professional teams ride our Ridley Elite Series bikes - including the likes of Tim Wellens, Caleb Ewan or Thomas De Gendt, this means that your bike is treated with the exact same care as theirs.
