Lightweight cyclocross bike ready for action and adventure

Experience the thrill of fast, off-road riding - or cyclocross racing - with the lightweight and sprightly, full carbon Ribble CX5. The CX5 is our new, top of the range, race ready, off-road adventure package. We’ve used all our ‘cross experience to tick all the boxes with the CX5 including the very latest flat mount disc calipers - the new standard for consistent braking.

“A competitive package if you want to get into cyclocross”

The CX5 is perfect for riding on any surface, including road commuting, but it really comes into its own on rides incorporating road, off-road tracks, trails, bridleways or lanes. It’s a road and cross country adventure bike that will take you wherever you want to ride.

The more relaxed geometry of this cyclocross bike, which makes it capable of absorbing off-road terrain, also makes it a comfort orientated, all-round bike suitable for general riding or perhaps towpath commuting. It’s a lightweight, versatile bike to add variety to your riding.

Disc brakes have taken over in cyclocross and we’ve designed this frame with the very latest flat mount fitment. Discs give reliable and predictable braking whatever the weather conditions, allowing for safe and sure stopping - or perhaps late braking to get into that corner first! 

The CX5 makes use of thru-axles which help produce a stiffer feel and that added stiffness from this set-up allows you to feel more in control when using lower pressures in your tyres.

Being British designed, the CX5 has got generous mud clearance and will take tyres up to 35mm wide. This is a bike capable of handling the harsh, winter conditions in the cyclocross heartland of northern Europe as well as longer, off-road gravel events. For commuting duties, the frame has mudguard attachment points.

The cross and adventure riding scene has really expanded in recent years, but some brands don’t always get the geometry right. We’ve designed a fairly traditional main triangle with a flattened top tube. This bike is easy to carry and we’ve also ensured there’s plenty of tyre clearance. The optimised geometry of the CX5 is racy enough to be competitive, but also offers enough comfort for those days when you ride further over any surface.

For cyclocross racing, everything on the CX5 is optimised to help you get through the mud of deep winter from the lightweight, carbon frame and internal cable routing to the horizontal and flat top tube making it easy to carry on you shoulder

The CX5 is perfect for all your multi-terrain or adventure riding so let it carry you off to explore the roads and tracks less travelled.

Ribble CX5 Customer Reviews

I recently bought the CX5 with SRAM x1 chainset, and disk brakes. I could not be happier with this bike. This was the second Ribble bike I have purchased. The first was the Audax winter bike for my commute to work that I bought a few years back and I was looking for a replacement. Ordering was simple, and the communication with Ribble was fast and very helpful. Bike arrived beautifully packed and no problems getting it on the road. When considering the specifications of this bike and quality of the frame, it would be hard to find a more competitively priced set of wheels.
Absolutely amazing bike at an amazing price. Bought through bike to work scheme.
Service and contact from Ribble has been brilliant, great communications and quick delivery.
Really easy to assemble. Highly recommended.
