Ribble Gran Fondo






Conquer your biggest rides in comfort and style

The Gran Fondo raises the bar for carbon sportive bikes. Comfort over longer rides is the priority of this frame and so the rider is put in the perfect upright riding position. Gran Fondo is the Italian term for “Big Ride” and we want you to be comfortable whether your next big ride is 10 miles or 110 miles.

The Gran Fondo has been totally re-designed and boasts improved geometry and advanced tubing profiles. It has however retained its classic Continental looks that make it instantly recognizable and a firm favourite with many cyclists.

Ideally suited to Sportive riding it now has an even more relaxed head tube angle and a longer mechanical trail and wheelbase. This makes your position on the bike more comfortable, less tiring and the bike even easier to handle.

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

The Gran Fondo is a bike that will quite happily go along at a steady pace, but when you want to ride a little harder, is also stiff enough to transfer your power through the pedals thanks to an oversized bottom bracket shell.

With clearance for 25mm wide tyres, the Gran Fondo becomes even more comfortable for long rides thanks to the shock abosrbing capabilities of this now popular tyre size.

Also available with disc brakes, the rich three-colour hand painted gloss finish with classic Italian styling and fully internal cable routing completes this impressive bike.

Go far and go fast with the Gran Fondo.

Having trained on an "Iron Horse" all summer... Burying myself in the Worcestershire Hills, I decided to invest in The Gran Fondo & what an investment! She served me well on The Vélo 2017!
