Ridley’s superb aero gravel bike – as a concept it shouldn’t exist but oh boy are we glad it does – utter fun on two wheels!
Gravel is the new kid on the block and its popularity is rapidly increasing. Is there a better combination than “discovering” and “cycling”? We don’t think so. Ridley makes a bike that excellently combines both. Coincidence? Not for us. With a gravel bike, you can master any terrain, at your own pace. But why the name “Kanzo”?
Kanzo, or canzo, is a word that dates back to the times of the troubadours, who were singers and poets in the Middle Ages. They travelled widely and experienced all kinds of adventures, which they turned into stories about knights or even love stories. On return to their home villages, they would tell the inhabitants about their adventures using three different genres. The most commonly used of these was a “kanzo/canzo”. Their stories moved entire communities, who hung on their every word.
Just like the troubadours, we want to encourage our Ridley riders to go out and ride their bikes, to discover new places or rediscover what they thought they already knew.
