Ribble's flagship and award-winning electric carbon road bike, the Endurance SL e, is now available in a new Hero edition creating what Ribble claim is one of the lightest e-bikes in the world at just 10.5kg.
Ribble have also unveiled their all-new Endurance AL e, their first aluminium e-road bike, which at just 13kg is said to be the lightest aluminium e-bike in its class.
Ribble's range-topping Endurance SL e Hero edition combines the Mahle EBM X35 system with fully integrated battery and drive system and is now lighter, faster and more efficient on climbs.
The top-spec build features Shimano's flagship Dura-Ace Di2 electronic shifting alongside carbon wheels and integrated aero bar and stem from Ribble's house brand LEVEL to deliver a world-class superbike.
The new Ribble Endurance AL e incorporates many of the characteristics of the SL e, offering a blend of light weight, durability, power assistance, range and connectivity.
Sporting a road-focused geometry derived from its carbon stablemate the SL, Ribble say the alloy model has been designed for endurance, performance and everyday use. The discreet but powerful Mahle EBM X35 motor system delivers three levels of power assistance when you need it.
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 a 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. The bikes can be paired with Mahle's Ebikemotion app on smart phones or watches to unlock additional features.
As we've come to expect from Ribble, each machine can be tailored to your own spec using the Ribble BikeBuilder tool and can be further personalised via Ribble's Custom Colour option.
On to the price tag, and the Ribble Endurance SL e range starts from £2,999 topping out at £6,999 for the dream spec Hero build.
Pricing for the Ribble Endurance AL e starts at £2,799 for the Enthusiast model equipped with Shimano 105 groupset and hydraulic disc brakes.
