New for 2020, UK-based Ragley’s Trig—the only gravel bike in the company’s MTB-heavy lineup—has seen some welcome updates that make it a competitive offering in the entry level all-road market. The new builds are sporting the same 4130 Chromoly frame from last year’s launch, but they now feature a carbon fork with three-pack mounts, and the wheels come taped for tubeless, valves included. Clearance for 700 x 40mm or 27.5 × 2.1” tires remains the same. The Trig is offered in a Gravel build (£1,199.99), Adventure build (£1,499.99), or as a frameset (£599.99). All options include Ragley’s five-year warranty and lifetime crash replacement.
Ragley Trig Frame Highlights
- Angles: 70° Headtube, 74° Seattube
- Chainstay: 425mm
- Bottom Bracket: 68mm BSA
- Hub Specs: 12×100 TA (front), 12x142mm TA (rear)
- Max Tire Size: 700c x 40mm / 27.5 x 2.1″
- Frame Sizes: S (19”), M (20”), L (21.5”), XL (23”)
2020 Ragley Trig Gravel Build
Priced at just £1,199.99 (~$1,560), the Trig looks to be Ragley’s answer to bikes like the Salsa Journeyman and Cannondale Topstone. That amount gets you a steel frame and carbon fork with a fairly sensible 2x drivetrain, 700c wheels, and mechanical disc brakes. Note that Ragley seems to have missed the mark on the ultra-wide gravel bar trend, speccing the Trig Gravel build with 420 or 440mm bars, depending on frame size.
2020 Ragley Trig Adventure Build
As the higher-end build option, the Trig Adventure is priced at £1,499.99 (~$1,950) and comes specced with a 1x SRAM Rival drivetrain, hydraulic disc brakes, and 650B wheels. As with the Gravel build, it has 420 or 440mm Ragley 6061 Alloy handlebars, depending on frame size.
