About the Kanzo range
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 traveled 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.

About the Kanzo A
The Kanzo A is Ridley’s alloy gravel bike for adventurous riders on a budget. This bike may be our most versatile frame platform: Offering a commuter setup with fenders during the week, it also allows you to discover gravel roads at the weekend, and every now and then you can put your bike packs on to go and explore the world. With this bike, you can do it all.

Thanks to its stable geometry, this bike rides like a dream in those long, straighter sections of trails. The frame fits 650B (650 x 50) or 700C (700 x 42) wheels and uses 12-mm thru-axles in frame and fork.
