Road riding has been defined by physical challenge, glory, passion, style and panache through a long history of the greatest athletes to have ever graced our planet, sacrificing everything and giving their all to conquer the terrain ahead of them for victory. This has forged what the modern-day road bike not only looks like but crucially feels like, being at one with the bike, the exhilaration and satisfaction gained from emulating heroes past and present as you ride to your personal victory.
This was paramount in our minds as we embarked on our e-road bike project. Our brief was to develop a product that would enhance the experience and essence of road riding by providing smooth and controlled power assistance when the rider needs it, whilst crucially ensuring that when power assistance is not required the product looks and feels like a normal high-end road bike.
The Ribble Endurance SLe has exceeded this brief and set a new benchmark for e-road bike design. Weighing as little as 11kg the SLe has positioned itself as the lightest e-road bike range in the World. Working with our partners at ebikemotion to offer the rider up to 250W of smooth and controlled power assistance on climbs and up to 26km/h through 3 power settings combined with a 250Wh internal battery (or up to 750Wh with the additional external battery packs) all of this is built into a superlight chassis that has all the attributes of a cutting edge high-end road bike.

Ribble Endurance SL e Customer Reviews
The bike itself is a Ribble SLe small carbon frame. Ultegra group set. Only a couple of minor alterations needed. The seat post needed shortening, flat pedals were too heavy, so bought lightweight ones with toe clips. The saddle options didn't suit so I opted for a one that suited my husband and bought my usual ladies saddle. Any one my age who is hesitating about buying an ebike should just do it. You will be amazed how easy cycling can be.
