Ribble Gran Fondo Disc





Endurance comfort and stopping power – the new Gran Fondo Disc

The brand new Gran Fondo Disc raises the bar for lightweight carbon disc bikes for longer endurance riding. It has been designed with sporting geometry with your perfect position on the bike the upmost priority. Gran Fondo is an Italian term which loosely translates to “Big Ride” - we want you to be comfortable whatever you call a big ride, whether that is 10 miles or 110 miles.

“Slackening the head tube should add a little more stability to the handling with s-bend seat stays introduced to add a little more comfort into the frame.” RoadCyclingUK

Ideally suited to Fondo or Sportive riding the versatile Ribble Gran Fondo Disc has a more relaxed head tube angle and a longer wheelbase or trail. This makes your position on the bike more comfortable and so less tiring and the bike even easier to handle.

The addition of the very latest Flat mount disc brakes makes the Gran Fondo Disc future-proof and ideally suited to wet or extreme riding conditions such as those found in the hills and high mountains. This disc-equipped bike will give greater confidence and safety when descending or riding in big groups.

The change to a slightly taller head tube and improved tube shaping also helps provide better handling, additional comfort and increased torsional stiffness, making the Gran Fondo Disc perfectly suited for longer rides.

The Gran Fondo Disc is a frame that will quite happily go along at a steady pace, but when you want to ride a little harder, is stiff enough to transfer full power through the pedals. A dose of classic Italian styling and fully internal cable routing complete the looks of this beautiful looking bicycle.

The Ribble Gran Fondo Disc is a bike for every scenario. With clearance for 30mm wide tyres, it becomes even more comfortable and suitable for long rides and those that incorporate rougher road sections or cobbles.

Also available with rim brakes, this is a bike designed for a more comfortable ride that is still lightweight, fast and nimble - go far and go fast with ease on the Gran Fondo Disc.
