Torpado Impudent is proud to present its new hard tail: Ribot X 29” Boost.
It is a completely renewed bicycle in comparison to the previous models and it is the result of a long work between Torpado Impudent’s R&D department and the professional athletes of Top Team Torpado Ursus and Torpado Südtirol.
Materials and productive processes have been improved: these have guaranteed us a bike, which weighs just 895 gr. (Size M, raw)
We also reached such result thanks to the improvement of the tubes sections, the use of the “flat mount” standard for rear break caliper and making a frame dedicated to the 1x drive train.
Due to the use of new materials and productive processes, Torpado Impudent has been working on the Ribot X behavior: its reactivity has been improved thanks to new shorter chain stays (425mm), which have been possible because of the adoption of 1x drivetrain.
In the new Ribot X, the handling has been improved because of a new longer top tube and a new shorter stem; moreover, a better handling has been guaranteed by the shorter chain stays and an improved steering angle of 69,5°, a seat tube angle of 73,5° and a fork with a travel of 100mm.
Torpado Impudent has further improved the rear-end of the Ribot X: shape and specialised use of the carbon fibers in seat stays have been designed to reach an excellent vibrations absorption, without compromising the reactivity guaranteed by the new shorter rear-end.
On the Ribot X project, we have been focusing on the design: predisposition to the interior cable routing has been improved thanks to the use of ONE WAY X. Thus, an use of a interchangeable plate allows the cable to enter into the frame by an unique point; this makes the design finer and at the same time easier both assembly and maintenance.
Ribot X: lightness, reactivity, agility and handling has been expressed at highest level, focusing on the details to give bikers a “race ready” product.

Tapered head tube improves stiffness, stability and riding precision
Horizontal Rear Brake: Disk brake post mounted on chain stay. This solution allows a more appealing shape, better braking performances and weight reduction
This system allows to widen the rear stop by moving both the disc brake and the chain line by 3 mm. As a result of that you will have a greater wheel camber which gives stability and driving precision (used in Plus models)
Monocoque carbon frame, disc-brake mount included
Outer skin UD carbon
Torpado Front Derailleur Direct-Mount
Front derailleur is mounted directly on the seat tube without any clamp; this solution allows weight reduction of the bicycle
Frame with BSA Bottom Bracket
New Cable entrance system with removable alloy plug to host up to 5 cables. Result of minimal design
This new system guarantees incredible pedal reactivity thanks to the record chainstays 425mm length, which have been realized for of the use of the 1 x drivetrain. The specific disposition of carbon fibers in the seat stays, together to the new geometry, guarantee better transmission of the traction, mechanical grip and comfort.
It’s a new standard, which allow reducing needed material to match the caliper to the frame. This solution reduce the weight and the torque on the frame during the slow down. Anyway, through an adaptor, is possible using post mount calliper.
Frame with integrated cable system, for a neat look of the bicycle
The Universal Derailleur Hanger consolidates thousands of hanger options across the industry. It protects your derailleur against chain jams by pivoting back and out of the way, and slips slightly when encountering impacts. It improves shifting performance, guarantees better alignment, and works with all drivetrains. Plus, if you ever need replacement, it will be available everywhere.
