The Sportive Racing Disc has the same frame triangle up front as the regular Sportive Racing, but the rear triangle and fork have been reworked and now have mudguard eyelets and clearance for 28mm tyres, further increasing the bike’s versatility and perfect for adding a bit more comfort or tackling slightly rougher terrain like cobbles.
The Sportive Racing Disc – with it’s ‘bumble bee’ colour scheme - perfectly combines comfort and tenacity. It has balanced design elements for sportive and endurance riding and racing with a taller head tube for longer rides and a race-orientated rear triangle. Riders are thrilled with how the Sportive Racing bikes handle – it offers a responsive, fast, well positioned and comfortable ride.
It features new tubing profiles - to increase stiffness where you need it - using Toray’s top T700/T800 carbon fibre to work in unison with the tapered head tube and carbon fork steerer. The bottom bracket is a press fit design which increases the power transfer from pedals to rear wheel.
Naturally, the frame is Di2 and electronic groupset ready and has internal cable routing. At the back of the frame the larger wishbone seat stay increases the responsiveness and stiffness of the frame making the bike accelerate as soon as you get out of the saddle.
Disc brakes on road bikes have come a long way and the big boys - Shimano and SRAM - have got it right with the very latest flat mount design calipers. The disc calipers are now the same size as rim brake calipers and so very similar in weight. The front disc caliper fits snugly behind the fork blade and the rear fits on top of the chainstay giving the bike a really clean look. If you are buying a disc road bike it has to have ‘Flat Mount’. Along with the flat mount disc the Sportive Racing Disc comes with 12mm front and rear through axles and a really nice way to keep your bum dry…
If you want to fit (and remove) mudguards this frame has a really nice design feature so you can fit mudguards – the dropout takes two bosses that can have mudguard eyes screwed into the frame - and this great feature changes the bike into an ideal winter training bike or commuter.
Also available in stealth black or racing green with rim brakes, the Sportive Racing Disc is one of the flagship disc brake bikes in a new generation of Ribble bikes – this bike is the future and you can experience this new technology now and stay ahead of the rest of the pack.
