Advanced and super lightweight for optimum climbing performance
The new SL takes pride of place at the very top of our lightweight, carbon road bike range. It’s the lightest frame that we have designed and built to date and it comes in at only 840g on the weighing scale (medium frame). This bike is for riders looking for every advantage on our lightest machine for road and circuit racing or epic challenge rides in the hills and big mountains. Wherever you want to ride fast the SL is designed to give you the edge and keep you right at the sharp end of your race.

With the new SL we have developed and produced a cutting-edge, highly advanced frameset that is incredibly light with new, carbon tube profiles designed to cut through the air. The high-end carbon frameset is very responsive to your accelerations, very little power transfer is lost and the overall ride feel is firm without being harsh.
Designed with racing geometry and a short wheelbase, the SL puts you in a low, efficient and aggressive racing position. The overall design is aimed at optimum performance, saving you watts and following the Ribble pedigree of being the fastest bike out there.
The SL’s distinctively thin seat stays help build in some comfort into the rear triangle of the bike and a 27.2mm seat post also assists in taking some sting out of any rough road surfaces.
An oversized bottom bracket shell and tapered head tube boost the bike’s stiffness and efficiency making it stiff enough to sprint for victory as well as light enough to climb into the clouds.
Over its matt carbon finish the SL boasts only subtle and understated graphics for a simple reason – paint adds weight to a frame so our designers have gone minimalist with the colour scheme.
