The Tiagra 10 speed groupset is a great choice for an entry level, no nonsense option. A wide range of gearing allows you to tailor the gearing to your needs and Shimano as ever offer their renowned precise, slick shifting.
The Apex 1x edition of the bike has been set up pre-dominantly as the off-road specific build. The 1x system offers improved off-road capability thanks to its wide gear range and lack of front derailleur which eliminates any chance of the front mech becoming jammed with mud and debris.
Shimano's newest iteration of the 105 groupset like its predecessors benefits from the trickle down performance enhancing technologies of its higher end groupsets.
Classic styling meets modern technology - with a hydraulic Shimano Ultegra groupset, the CGR 725 is capable of being both a high end gravel bike, or perhaps a versatile road bike.
Finance is subject to status. Terms and conditions apply.

Ribble CGR 725 Customer Reviews
I honestly thought about replacing that with the same bike but was persuaded to look at steel by a good friend of mine
Well ... what a great choice I made ... I have only had chance complete one ride but it is so comfortable. The new 105 is slick and feels like Ultegra to me
I would exhort anybody who wants to spend long days in the saddle in comfort to look at these bikes. The value for money is phenomenal too
