This is the Flight Ti from UK urban cycling specialists Ridgeback, complete with titanium bar and seatpost, carbon fork and top-end finishing kit.
From our experience of previous Ridgeback Flight bikes, we’re expecting a light and lively ride with sharp steering – but with added titanium ‘zing’.
The £2,299.99 Ti has a 3V/2.5AL titanium frame, 10-speed Shimano Ultegra 6700 drivetrain, Alex R475 wheelset and Shimano hydraulic disc brakes.
It comes with Continental Gatorskin tyres and the frame can take wider 35-37c treads if necessary. Mudguard and rack fittings are standard on all Flight models too. Weight on our office scales was 9.92kg (21.87lb).
Watch out for a full review of the Ti in an upcoming issue of Cycling Plus magazine.
