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.

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.

Meet Tony, a passionate e-bike advocate and enthusiast who discovered the life-changing benefits of electric bikes back in 2016. Tony's journey began after gaining weight and neglecting his health in his forties, as a result his doctor advised him to get an electric bike to help him tackle the steep hills in his area and inspire him to get fit. Since that time, Tony has become a true believer in the power of e-bikes, using them to transform his own health and inspiring others to do the same. Tony’s technical experience within the e-bike field was gained while running a successful electric bike conversion business for 5 years in his home county of Cornwall, UK.
