XDS RX 700
The RX700 road bike from XDS is unusually advanced for its modest price. The frame benefits from the lightness and responsiveness of the same Toray carbon fibre that you will find on our most expensive professional level road bikes. Internal cable routing and sleek sculptural lines reveal its class, and with Mavic Aksium wheels and the latest Shimano Ultegra components, the RX800 is ready to compete at the highest level. In fact, we asked XDS for their best frame, and this is it.
But at only $1899, the question people most often ask us about the RX700 is whats the catch?
The catch is this: XDS road bikes come directly from the manufacturer, which believe it or not, is very, very rare.
Despite the many dozens of bike brands in existence, nearly all of the worlds carbon fibre bikes are made by just a handful of companies who have invested the necessary millions into the design, equipment, processes and controls to ensure reliable production. These manufacturers are usually anonymous. Take Giant for example: by the time it began to sell bikes under its own brand in 1981, it had already been making bikes for 10 years and was one of the largest bike manufacturers in the world all before anybody had heard of Giant bikes.
So it is no accident that the RX700 has all the features of a top-shelf road bike. It's made using the same materials, the same processes, in the same factory, as some of the prestigious brands you will see out on the road. XDS even gives you a lifetime warranty on the RX700 frame, which they can confidently do because they are already a very strong company, capable of producing 4,000 bikes a month.
The real key to the RX700 is what you are not paying for the massive marketing budget that the big brands need to stand out from the crowd. As a wholesale manufacturer with almost no budget for marketing, you benefit from all the know-how and experience and an impressive factory-direct warranty, but the catch is with XDS you pay for nothing but the bike.
1. Dual Mould Curing System
The frame Rx700 uses dual mould curing system meaning other than the big steel tooling; there are PU moulds inside of the junction areas (head tube, seat tube, and bb). By doing so, the inner walls of these areas can be very smooth without wrinkles like earlier processes.This process also reduces weight on the frames as no fibre around inner walls is wasted.
2. The carbon used for the frame Rx700 Is Toray M30S 30T, which is a high modulus grade.
