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.

After a bit of a wait, which I think many have stated before me, understandable in current climate, it finally arrived!
Super happy with it, well packed, great customer service. Rides superbly. Even through the sand with 700 wheels and and 60psi

Love my new bike; it’s well worth the wait. Got it unboxed and assembled within an hour of it arriving. Then, as the sun was shining, took it for a test ride around one of my favourite MTB chilling routes. The route includes farm tracks, forest fire breaks, a well smoothed single track path, and a lovely footy trail around a loch.
The bike is a blast! The tyres absorb enough knocks to make the ride comfortable. The SRAM Apex gearing is sweet and smooth shifting; once I’d worked out how the gear lever worked. The brakes just need a little bit of bedding in. Handling on the road was nice and sharp.
This isn’t a technical review. I brought the bike for fun rides. Against that criteria, my Ribble is absolutely wonderful.
And, by the way, aesthetically it’s very pleasing - it is pretty. Thank you.
