The X-Night SL is a pure cyclo-cross competition bike. It’s an extremely light, super aggressive off-road machine that’s ready and willing to be ridden to the top of any cyclocross podium straight through to the World Championships.
This was proven by the Belgium CX team Pauwels Sauzen-Bingoal again and again in the 2021/22 CX Season
…including the World Cup Win for Eli Iserbyt!!!
Designed for top competition, down to the smallest detail. Its geometry has been fine-tuned over many years in cooperation with multiple cyclo-cross World Champions (15 world titles) and provides quick, aggressive reactions through technical terrain. It reads your body movements to work with you like the perfect teammate. This gives that extra level of confidence all around the track. The reactivity of this bike clearly sets it apart from gravel bikes.
There’s plenty enough front triangle room for shouldering. The flattened underside of the top tube makes for a comfy run when you hit those never-ending mud-running sections. Internal cable routing keeps the cables clean and out of your way when hopping off and on the bike. There is also special sealing for mechanical cable routing.
Compatible with mechanical and electronic shifting.
About the X-Night SL Disc
The X-Night SL Disc is our model ridden to glory by the Pauwels Sauzen-Bingoal team. It is the ultimate cyclocross tool in mastering any track. It superbly handles everything from fast, dry early season races to the mid-season mudfests such as Belgium’s Superprestige Gavere. Thanks to Ridley patented F-Steerer technology, all cables have been integrated into the frame for easy shouldering and to keep dirt and mud from building up around the cable inserts.
Its disc brakes prepare you for every unforeseen obstacle that may come your way. This includes that split-second need for speed modulation to change lines down the sloppy Gavere mud chute. If you’re ready to take your racing to that next level, this is the bike for you!
