For the Ridley Ignite SLX Hardtail I worked on the geometry and technical input to create a modern and lightweight 29er hardtail designed for XCO and XCM use. Compared to it’s predecessor the riding behaviour is more stable in fast descends but still agile and playfull and close to the Ridley race roots. This was achieved by a slacker headtube, longer toptube and shorter chainstay.
- Compatible with 1x and 2x mechanical and electronic groupsets and an internally routed dropper post can be used.
