Light and robust the CGR Alloy is an impressive bike that will take you anywhere with capable performance and striking style. Strong, versatile and durable, the geometry of the hand built, British-designed CGR Alloy has been carefully formulated to conquer a wide range of riding surfaces with ease.
Versatility is at the core of the CGR range and this aluminium model certainly ticks all of the boxes. The endurance (relaxed riding position) geometry of the CGR Alloy makes this bike comfortable, composed, responsive and ready for any ride.
We liked the relaxed “endurance” riding position and our test bike, fitted with the excellent Shimano 105 groupset, was light enough to easily keep pace with clubmates on Sunday runs.

100% satisfied with my new bike. Ribble are an excellent company, who deliver a fantastic service. Anyone serious about cycling should strongly consider buying a Ribble.
For the last couple of years I have been riding a cyclocross bike (not Ribble) for my commute, and I just haven't been able to get on with it. After much deliberation I decided I needed something with a geometry more akin to a endurance bike, but with the ability to fit full mudguards, wider tyres, etc. The CGR-AL ticks all of these boxes and I absolutely love it! The orange paintwork is just gorgeous, and the bike is an absolutely joy to ride. I've only done my 10 mile commute so far, but I feel that I could happily go on a full day's ride on this bike with no problems. The 105 groupset is superb, especially the hydraulic brakes. I will definitely be considering a Ribble when I come to replace my "weekend" bike as well!
A great all-rounder, the latest iteration of our classic tried and tested Audax bike; this bike will handle whatever you can throw at it. The Endurance AL is a fast and light platform for the everyday cyclist or weekend leisure rider.
The all new Ribble CGR SL is the ultimate in lightweight, high performance, rugged, versatility. The CGR SL range can take you anywhere from the highest mountain passes, distant trails or your most imaginative daily commute.
