Ridgeback K-5 '02

Tougher wheels and suspension forks make the K5 more off-road ready

Product Description

Upgrades from Ridgeback Adventure K4

  • Continuing the comfort theme, the K4 gets an RST suspension fork. Bumps what bumps?
  • Better wheels built with stainless steel spokes and a cassette freehub. With the axle perfectly balanced between the ball races, the freehub has virtually banished the risk of bent or broken rear axles.
  • Suede comfort grips & saddle.
  • More deluxe Shimano 24-speed transmission.
  • Like all the Ridgeback Adventure-series bikes, the K5 comes with the most versatile wheel size in the western world - 26” ATB. This means that can customise the bike for a future change in your riding habits or terrain, simply by swapping the tyres for 26 x 1.5” slicks or 26 x 2” knobblies.
