Previously unimaginable mountain passes, not keeping up on hilly group rides and the rides that take you way outside your comfort zone are now in the past with the new Ribble Endurance SLe.

RIDE IT ALL
WITH STYLE

Previously unimaginable mountain passes, not keeping up on hilly group rides and the rides that take you way outside your comfort zone are now in the past with the new Ribble Endurance SL e. With builds ranging from 11kg, the Ribble Endurance SL e is the World’s lightest e-road bike range.

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.

WHO IS THE
ENDURANCE SL E FOR?

The Fitness rider looking to ride further with significantly less fatigue, make light work of hills, go from not keeping up with the group to leading the group over the summit and experience longer rides over more challenging terrain that wouldn’t previously have been possible.

The Leisure rider looking to enjoy the road cycling experience whilst staying within their physical comfort zone.

The competitive rider, just set the power setting to Red and you have 250W of additional power boosting you up to an Elite level climber.

Whatever your level of riding the SLe will give you a significant performance boost to get you over previously unimaginable mountain passes, keep up on hilly group rides and smash the ride that took you way outside your comfort zone.

Make it Possible with the SL e

Verdict: Excellent, lightweight e-road bike that’s fun to ride with or without power

ABOUT THE
FRAME

Based on the new superlight Ribble Endurance SL frame platform the SL e has been designed around a carefully considered geometry resulting in a frameset that offers stability, comfort and great handling with enough adjustability to suit both endurance riders and those looking for a more performance optimised riding position.

The SL e frameset is manufactured from a carefully selected blend of Toray’s T1000 and T800 carbon layered to an exacting specification using an advanced monocoque mould technology incorporating an EPS inner core system which ensures complete consistency of the structural integrity of the fibres and resin throughout the frame. This system also eliminates excess material on the inside of the frame.

The profiles and shapes designed into the frame are all there for a specific performance reason, from the box section down tube and chain-stays enhancing torsional stiffness to the seat post and seat stays designed for vertical compliance and vibration absorption, this frame is the epitome of design and attention to detail.

With a multitude of component, wheel and finishing kit specification options the SLe can be built into your dream bike tailored to your style and level of riding.

Well, what can I say? Had first proper ride out last Sunday in horrendous winds and thoroughly enjoyed the ride.... after 15 miles my battery power was down to 56% but the next 15 miles, only 10% was used, so after 30 miles I still had 46% battery left. Avg. speed for ride was 16.6mph with just under 900ft of climbing!! I was well pleased with that considering the conditions. Only issue I have is rear tyre goes down after 2-3 days, so new sealant ordered to see if that sorts it out!! ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!!

My Endurance SLE has upgraded carbon wheels, tyres and di2. The build has been carried out meticulously....my thanks to the mechanic.
I’m amazed how well the bike goes and handled. On the flat it’s effortless and hills no problem despite the added weight of motor and battery.....and that’s with the E assist turned off! (All up weight with pedals, cages etc is 11.3k).
So what I’ve got is a bike I’d happily ride all day with assist off , so no ‘range anxiety’ but with the option of a bit more speed and fun if I want it.

Frequently Asked
Questions
Do I need to pedal to ride this ebike?

Yes, our ebikes are pedal assisted models which require rider input at all times.

I’m worried that I won’t have full control over the bike?

There’s no need to worry, being a pedal assisted model means you are in full control at all times. When a power assist level is selected the motor simply provides a little extra boost whilst you pedal and does not take over.

Can I go faster than 15mph?

Yes, and with builds from only 11kgs you may find yourself above this speed a lot of the time. The motor will only assist you up to 15mph, and for speeds above this you will be relying on your legs.
