New Ribble Endurance AL e and SL e Hero Edition released.
Ribble’s flagship and award-winning electric road bike, the Endurance SL e, is now available in a new Hero edition creating the lightest e-bike in its class and one of the lightest e-bikes in the world at just 10.5kg. Ribble have also just released the all-new Endurance AL e, their first aluminium e-road bike, which at just 13kg is the lightest aluminium e-bike in its class.
Ribble SL e Hero Edition
Ribble’s range-topping Endurance SL e Hero edition combines the Mahle X35 ebikemotion system with fully integrated battery and drive system and is now lighter, faster and comes with the precision of Shimano’s excellent Dura-Ace Di2 electronic shifting to deliver a world-class superbike. The LEVEL 5 full-carbon integrated handlebar/stem combination is aero optimised and super-stiff. The new LEVEL DB35 Superlight EBM carbon wheels offer seamless integration with tubeless tyres combined with high-end disc specific sealed cartridge bearing hubs to create a lightweight, aerodynamically optimised smooth-rolling wheelset.
I was fortunate enough to test the Ribble Endurance SL e at the end of last year and it’s a cracking bike to ride. You can read my full review here.
Ribble Endurance AL e
The Ribble Endurance AL e incorporates many of the characteristics of the SL e, offering a blend of lightweight, durability, power assistance, range and connectivity and has been designed for endurance, performance and everyday use. The discreet powerful Mahle EBM X35 motor system delivers 3 levels of power assistance when you need it. A road focussed geometry derived from the Endurance SL carbon series offers a fast and agile ride quality with a comfortable and efficient all-day riding position. The frame is constructed from lightweight 6061 T6 heat treated aluminium, with smooth welds for optimal strength and builds starting at 13kg. Internal cable routing with a slim and lightweight battery hidden within the downtube preserves the clean lines.
Both bikes feature the easy-to-use control button mounted on the top tube enabling the power assistance to be selected whilst on the move, as well as indicating the amount of charge remaining. Paired with Mahle’s Ebikemotion app on smart phones or watches will unlock a multitude of additional features.
Each bike can be tailored to your own specification using the Ribble BikeBuilder tool and can be further personalised via Ribble’s Custom Colour option. For more information click on the links below to be taken to Ribble’s website.
