After a successful reboot of the range last year, Ragley has made some subtle tweaks to its bike range for 2020 and announced two new additions to the line-up.
As seen at Corebike earlier this week, all the mountain bikes now roll of Maxxis EXO+ Tubeless Ready tyres while all the bikes have tubeless tape installed and valves supplied in the box. The XL size also benefits from a 170mm dropper post where one is fitted.
The two new additions to the range come in the form of the new Blue Pig Race and Big Wig Race complete bikes.
The Big Wig Race bumps travel up to 150mm due to the RockShox Lyrik fork and new Shimano SLX 12-speed drivetrain and 4-pot brakes.
The Blue Pig Race spec bike, which offers the best performance of any Ragley to date according to the brand, also features a RockShox Lyrik fork, Shimano SLX 12-speed gearing and 4-pot brakes.
The tweaks to the rest of the range include the Piglet’s revamp; the 2020 bike receives a wider range cassette thanks to the Sram NX Eagle groupset, in addition to the Sun Ringlé Duroc wheels shod in 2.6″ Maxxis Minions front and back.
The Big Al is now built around a lighter allow frame with a carefully curated selection of components to give bang for your buck. Shimano takes over the stopping duties and the cassette grows to an 11-46t option.
This year, the Mmmbop’s 150mm travel is provided by a RockShox Sektor, alongside the wider range cassette of the Sram SX groupset.
There was little change for the Marley 1.0 and 2.0 for 2020 other than fitting 2.6″ Maxxis Minion tyres and setting the wheel up ready for tubeless out of the box.
Gravel enthusiasts will be happy to see the Trig get a significant upgrade for 2020, with a full carbon fork complete with multiple cage and rack mounts.
Stopping by the Hotlines stand at this year’s Corebike show, CI.N caught up with Marketing Manager David Flynn, who said: “We’re calling the range 2020, but Hotlines isn’t operating as strictly on a traditional model-year basis now.”
