R872

THE RIBBLE R872 -

THE MULTI AWARD WINNER'S REBIRTH

The latest iteration of our 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. With its precision handling, stiffness and stability this is also an excellent choice for those wishing to dip their toe into the world of road racing or simply those looking for an agile and nimble road bike.

HOW TO BUY
FEATURES
  • Full carbon frame and carbon bladed fork Lightweight, Increased torsional stiffness and better vibration absorption
  • Endurance geometry Fine tuned for confidence inspiring handling, stability and all day in the saddle comfort
  • Internal cable routing and Di2 Compatibility Cleaner lines, improved aerodynamics with cables away from the elements
  • Tapered down tube and box section chainstays Increased torsional stiffness for pedalling efficiency, handling and high-end race bike acceleration
DESIGNED WITH PASSION

Designed in house here at Ribble HQ in Lancashire and expertly hand crafted from carbon this stylish and lightweight machine is built to offer you the perfect combination of a high-end performance road bike but with a slightly more relaxed 'sportive' geometry. The shape and dimensions of each tube have been carefully selected to offer you the most compliant ride possible for those epic rides yet not lose the bikes agility.

The sleek profiled tubing offers a perfectly blended balance between high-end performance and styling. Internal cable routing has been incorporated within the design to both improve the lines of the bike and also to keep the cables out of the elements. This in turn ensures that the bike is more streamlined which will therefore also make you faster and climb better than ever before! We have made various changes to the previous R872s design to achieve an improved ride feel, these include;

  • An oversize profile, tapered downtube for improved torsional stiffness and power transfer.
  • A dropped seat stay design for vertical compliance and vibration absorption enhancing comfort.
  • An aero profile carbon bladed fork for precision steering.
  • A tapered head tube offering improved front end stiffness.
  • The chainstays have been lengthened slightly to provide extra stability.
  • Enhanced tyre clearance for additional comfort and grip.
  • Internal cable routing for cleaner lines and protection for the cables.
  • The tried and tested threaded bottom bracket design for increased durability.
OPTIMAL POWER TRANSFER

The R872 also makes for a very capable race bike. The dropped seat stays, as well as offering better protection from road vibration also offer better power transfer thanks to the reduced section of the rear triangle. This translates into a lightning fast bike that is equally at home on the sportive as it is on your commute.

This reduced section rear triangle design combined with an oversize BB and box section chainstays allows more of the power generated by you to be transferred directly to road. Every watt transferred into forward motion means less power that you have generated is wasted thanks to the increased torsional stiffness and all energy saved is a bonus and reduces fatigue.

The front end stiffness is provided by the incorporation within the design of an oversize tapered head tube, tapered fork steerer and fork profile.

FEATURES
  • Mudguard compatible Discreet mounts for full mudguards
  • Generous tyre clearance Clearance for 28mm tyres (25mm with guards)
  • Dropped seatstays Improved power transfer and vibration absorption
  • Traditional threaded bottom bracket Providing secure creak free performance

MILE EATING COMFORT

The carefully considered geometry of the R872 has been chosen to offer you the ultimate in comfort and stability as well as provide poised, controlled, handling. Endurance rides such as long distance sportives demand that you be as comfortable in the saddle as possible to reduce fatigue and prevent soreness. To alleviate this as much as possible the dropped seat stays offer incredible vibration absorption from the roads. Also, the tall head tube and shorter top tube design of the frame offers a relaxed more upright position.

The R872 frame has discreet mudguard mounts and clearance for tyres widths up to 28mm (25mm with mudguards fitted). These features ensure better comfort thanks to the wider tyre profile and all-weather capability for those all-season epic rides.
