Ambition helps motivates us. It helps us strive for more and reach new goals.
The X Ambition is built for more. More miles, more adventures, more smiles! We focused on improved comfort with a more upright riding position and new saddle design. We increased braking power by adding the same brakes as the Redwood and completed the build with 700 x 40 Kenda Happy Medium tires for good speed on the road and grip on gravel.
Difference between the standard X and the X Ambition: We get this question every so often so we figured we'd explain a little further. The X Ambition offers a more upright seated position which is more comfortable and upright (see image below). The X Ambition offers stronger brakes like our Redwood model. We offer a newer comfort forward saddle which may work better for more riders across the board. The X Ambition also comes with 700 x 40 tires which gives the ride a little more of a plush ride feel but the tread pattern allows this bike to accel on dirt and pavement.

Road to Trail
Very easy to assemble with a minimal amount of effort. I replaced the provided seat with my old well worn and comfortable seat. The chain was a bit difficult to unravel, and I resorted to opening the chain at the masterlink.
The frame is very solid and the components are decent for an entry level bike (and are the same as an entry level trek). I will eventually do some upgrades over the course of the next few years
After I made sure everything was tight, fitted, and set, I took the bike on a shake down ride. Originally planning on a simple 5 mile ride, It felt so comfortable I decided to do twenty.
So far I am enjoying the ride.
The only immediate critique is that the tires are super low grade, but I was planning on replacing them anyway.
I love this bike , it’s so smooth on transitions and brakes I’m a beginner on gravel and this makes me feel like a pro , I will keep buying from Poseidon from now on
