New Team Bike Build : KTM X-Strada 720

In preparation for the team's 900 mile-ish Charity Challenge ride to Marseille... the team have received a pair of KTM X-Strada 720's!


These bikes are (at the time of writing), 2 of only 6 in the UK. They will be the actual bikes to be ridden by Craig & Robbie in the charity challenge.


The KTM X-Srada 720 is one of KTM's latest Gravel / Cyclo-X bike range... its not quite as aggresive as the KTM Canic (the die hard cyclo-cross racers favourite), its a much more versatile everyday ride... an "everyday route to the office, or a multi day tour, or even a CX race, the X-Strada will be on your side!"


Specification wise the 720 is kitted out as below:

  • Frame / Fork: X-Strada 6061 Alu Triple butted Frame / Gravel Carbon F13 KTM Fork

  • Colour: Red Fade / White

  • Frame Size: 49 | 52 | 55 | 57 | 59cm

  • Finishing Kit: KTM Comp

  • Brakes: Shimano GRX RX400 2 Piston

  • Shifters: Shimano GRX 400

  • Rear Derailleur: Shimano GRX 400

  • Crankset: Shimano GRX 600 46-30

  • Cassette: Shimano Deore HG50-10 11-36

  • Wheels: KTM Line - Shimano RS470 CL - 100m front / 142mm rear - DT swiss spokes

  • Tyres: Schwalbe G-ONE Race Guard 40-622

  • Saddle: Selle Italia X3

Both bikes arrived majority assembled, just needing tweeking to do the final set up.


Tweaking included: Removing all packaging; inserting front wheel; realigning the handle bars; switching over the brakes (from Euro to UK spec); adding pedals, and inserting a seat post with seat... JOB DONE!!


Please see images of Robbie building / setting his up:


Both riders are super excited to test the X-Strada's out and see what punishment they take. Now the 'serious part starts'... Craig & Robbie have 3 months to 'bed them in' and get used to riding them before their EPIC Charity Challenge!!


We will as time progresses let you know how Craig & Robbie get on with their bikes via our social channels, and what modifications will be done to make the bikes suitable for the challenge- stay tuned!!
