With a carefully considered geometry resulting in a frameset that offers stability, comfort and precision handling with enough adjustability to suit both endurance riders and those looking for a more performance optimised riding position. The shape and design of every tube profile and intersection is there for a reason all contributing to the overall performance and ride feel you get from the SL platform.
We create the bike, you decide the design. Be bold and bright or stealthy as you like. With millions of
combinations, you can make a bike unique to you.

WHO IS THE
ENDURANCE SL FOR?
With its impeccable performance, versatility and a multitude of wheel, component and finishing kit options the Endurance SL and SL R Series can be fine-tuned for all riders of all levels of experience and ability.
The serious racer whether Elite or local hero will appreciate the frames stiffness and power transfer. The built in aerodynamic tech, builds tipping the scales below the UCI weight limit and disc and caliper brake options mean the Endurance SL platform offers a performance advantage in all race situations.
The Endurance rider will benefit from the race bike attributes designed into the frame and will also see gain from the comfort enhancing and fatigue reducing features ensuring that they can go further, higher and quicker whether all day Epic or Weekend Gran Fondo.
Fitness and Leisure riders can experience the feeling you only get from a high end race bike but with the geometry and fit required to achieve a comfortable and efficient riding position. The platforms comfort, stability, handling and braking performance will inspire confidence making the Endurance SL the perfect partner as you develop your riding ability. Ride further, comfortably with less fatigue, make light work of hills, as you progress to experience longer rides over more challenging terrain.
The SL 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.
Aerodynamics have been a major consideration in the development of the new Endurance SL with the new frameset generating up to 28.5% less drag compared to the previous generation.
Aerodynamic drag saving features include,
Truncated aerofoil down tube
Aero fork blade profile
Truncated aerofoil seat tube and seat post
Internal cable routing
Optional aero one piece cockpit enabling all cables to be routed internally and away from the airflow generating over 40% less drag compared to a conventional bar and stem set up (disc brake version has all cables completely hidden and caliper brake just the front brake cable).
Power transfer and torsional stiffness have been taken into account through the tapered downtube, oversize BB area, and box section chainstays ensuring that your power wattage is efficiently transferred to forward motion. The tapered fork steerer, oversize headtube area and fork profile ensure that front end stiffness is taken care for out of the saddle efforts.
Comfort through road surface impact and vibration absorption is very important in an Endurance bike and the specific shapes and profiles of the seat stays, seat post and carbon cockpit ensure that the Endurance SL is smooth and comfortable over rough road surfaces and long distances.
The SL frameset has discreet mudguard mounts and tyre clearances for up to 28c tyres ensuring that the Endurance SL can be ridden in all season and weather conditions.
The SL ULTEGRA Di2 with £500 off in the January sale was a no brainer when I was looking for a new bike. So much so that I opted for the integrated carbon bars as an extra. I’m so pleased I did because its lines are so clean and in teal it looks stunning. There was a hiccup with delivery, down to Parcelforce not Ribble, who sorted it very quickly and re-shipped the bike with next day delivery. The basic Mavic wheels don’t really do it justice but I didn’t opt for an upgrade as I had a decent set of wheels I could use.
I’ve only been for a short ride just to make sure everything worked and the gears were indexing properly. First experience of Di2 and it is SO smooth. Everything was fine and the build quality generally is first class. All I had to do was attach the bars, a 5 min job.
Booked in for a bike fit, then I shall be impatiently waiting for the weather to improve as it is going to be my best best bike.
So........so far really happy. If I can I will update when I get some decent mileage in
Unpacking took longer than setting up - first class - no damage after its 1500 mile journey to my place in Spain - well done GLS. The bike handles like a dream and I am sold on the Di2 system (will experiment later).
Only 2 minor criticisms (a) Being a newbie to the world of electronic shifting I tried for ever to get the Di2 to connect to my Smartphone via Bluetooth only to discover through searching the web that you need the Wi-Fi adapter as well for this function to be accessible - would be helpful if the setup told you this! (b) Set up the saddle and on my 2nd outing went over a bump only to have it tilt up on me - it made for an uncomfortable ride back to the garage. Checked that I had set the torque correctly and it seemed correct - don't know what happened there. I'm only 84kilos (6' 3") so not an excessive weight.
Other than that looking forward to many pleasant hours of cycling on my "RIBBLE" - well worth every penny.
The latest iteration of the highly successful and test winning R872 (Winner of Cycling Weekly and Cycling Plus 'Best on Test' Awards). The versatile 'sportive' geometry results in a bike equally well suited to epic century rides and fast commutes.
