  • R872 Disc – Sport

This lightweight bike can compete with bikes that cost twice as much, whether upgrading to your first carbon bike or entering the world of road cycling for the first time. After stating just this, T3 magazine gave it five stars and its platinum award. The Shimano Tiagra groupset emphasizes precise and reliable gear changing and has been added to the rigid yet supple carbon frame. Mechanical disc brakes have also been added for powerful, controlled braking in all weather conditions.

Available: In Anthracite or Teal colorways.

  • R872 – Sport

Fans of conventional rim brakes can delight at an R872 that, although identical in every other way, barely outweighs its disc brake twin on the weighing scales. While a somewhat more upright’sportive’ shape provides a comfortable riding posture for prolonged rides, the frameset’s carbon construction softens the impact of bumpy roads. Shimano Tiagra’s Ribble drivetrains feature many design cues found in the top-tier series drivetrains from Japanese manufacturers, providing substantial entry-level performance without breaking the budget. The Ultra Sport tires from Continental are a smooth-riding, durable option for daily road rides when paired with LEVEL 1 wheels.

  • R872 Disc – Enthusiast

Fast and light. Composed and at ease. These attributes and more apply to the Ribble R872. It strikes the ideal balance between an all-day tarmac explorer and a high-end race bike. The 105 R7000 groupset from Shimano is the tried-and-true “workhorse” groupset we chose to complement the lightweight carbon frame. The 105 features the same smooth shifting as top-tier lines and hydraulic disc brakes for complete braking confidence on every ride. It is the entry point into 11-speed shifting. A bike with high-quality Mavic Aksium wheels and quick, gripping, puncture-resistant Continental Ultra Sport tyres completes the package for days filled with adventure on the open road. 

Available: In Anthracite or Teal colorways.

  • Endurance 725 Disc – Base

You will frequently hear the “Steel is real” adage repeated in bike communities. It offers consistently compliant ride quality and enduring durability that distinguish it from other frame materials. With a handcrafted Reynolds 725 steel frame that expertly combines current performance with vintage elegance, the Endurance 725 blurs the distinction between the modern and the traditional. This is a Ribble bike to enjoy the long miles in comfort and style, with Shimano Tiagra providing grassroots cyclists with a groupset that is simple to use, accurate, and dependable, and Mavic Aksium wheels covered in fast, gripping, and puncture-resistant Continental Ultra Sport tyres. 

Available: In Black/White or British Racing Green/Yellow Colorways.
