Built around the elegant, ride smoothing, and rugged Reynolds 725 steel frameset is a package that is designed to maximise the CGR 725’s off-road credentials. This gravel optimised edition features the precision shifts and off-road ergonomics of Shimano’s RX600 gravel dedicated groupset while powerful hydraulic disc brakes offer complete braking confidence in all conditions. Keeping things rolling smoothly over variable surfaces are a set of Mavic Aksium Disc wheels fitted with plush WTB Riddler 45mm tyres which offer supreme comfort and traction over loose and hardpack surfaces.
With the CGR 725's generous tyre clearance and the additional versatility provided by the compatibility with mudguards and a rear mounted pannier rack the CGR 725 excels as an all-terrain commuter, light tourer or gravel crusher.
Shimano's GRX600 groupset has been designed from the ground up as a gravel focused groupset. Light and responsive gear shifts are provided by shifters that feature new gravel inspired ergonomics with more comfort, security and control when things get bumpy over the roughest of surfaces. A single ring configuration keeps things simpler and reduces the chance of any mechanical mishaps from debris while also offering a gear range wide enough to conquer even the most challenging of terrains. Powerful hydraulic disc brakes provide total braking confidence in all conditions.
Mavic's strong and reliable Aksium wheelset are a proven perfomer and are highly capable of tackling a wide variety of terrains and surfaces with ease. WTB Riddler's are an incredibly versatile, tubeless-ready tyre which grip tenaciously when cornering aggressively and also offer impressive levels of traction and efficiency on hardpack or loose surfaces.

Customer service communication was fast and excellent from the beginning until the end.
Delivery took time, which was expected, but maybe Ribble could have informed me that delivery is delayed because of one part missing and offer substitutive part instead of chosen one.
Bike arrived with damaged chain, but this was handled very well and fast with the customer service and I got to buy a new chain which Ribble covered.
Bike seems to be excellent, but I haven't been able to ride it very much yet, see the picture and you probably understand :D
I had four main reasons to buy a Ribble 725:
It just looked like the further development off the bikes I rode when I was 15.
It looks stunning.
It is steal.
It was easier to convince my wife why it was absolutely necessary to buy another bike, because they both come from Lancashire.
Now, after it had been stuck in customs for two weeks, it has arrived and I could tell you for hours, that is really a slim beauty, that it is very comfortable and safe. And I could keep waffeling about the do-it-all-character, wether its commuting, winter training or touring in the woods, wether on snow, tarmac or muddy wood paths.
And about the perfect assembling by the people from Ribble.
Bit if I would all do this, I couldn‘t ride it anymore.
So by for now with a big fat grin.
