To celebrate the launch of the its new 2014 X-Night frameset, the gang from Ridley has cobbled together a special edition X-Night SuperLight. The complete bike weighs just 14.2 pounds in a size 52, and comes spec’d with a full SRAM Red 22 traditional drivetrain (disc systems still weigh too much for the super light realm).
Other spec highlights include a set of Zipp 303 Firecrest tubular wheels, an Oryx Pro carbon monocoque fork with tapered steerer, and a whole array of 4ZA Cirrus Pro carbon components. The bike will be sold as a limited edition and is definitely a Euro’centric build, meaning it’s not likely we’ll see any in North America. But that doesn’t mean it’s not fun to look at. Here’s the full spec. And make sure to check out the photo gallery to see more of this sexy SuperLight machine.
