The competition for being the world’s lightest e-road bike range is still opened and the new player is the legendary UK brand Ribble Cycles.
The new Ribble Endurance SLe. Super stealth smooth and controlled power assistance with 3 power settings all in a superlight high-end carbon road platform. With builds ranging from 11kg the Ribble Endurance SLe is the World’s lightest e-road bike range.
The Ribble Endurance SLe has exceeded this brief and set a new benchmark for e-road bike design. Weighing as little as 11kg the SLe has positioned itself as the lightest e-road bike range in the World, offering the rider up to 250W of smooth and controlled power assistance on climbs and up to 26km/h through 3 power settings combined with a 250Wh internal battery (or up to 750Wh with the additional external battery packs) all of this is built into a superlight chassis that has all the attributes of a cutting edge high-end road bike.
In own words of Mr. Andy Smallwood Ribble Cycles CEO, “This was paramount in our minds as we embarked on our e-road bike project. Our brief was to develop a product that would enhance the experience and essence of road riding by providing smooth and controlled power assistance when the rider needs it, whilst crucially ensuring that when power assistance is not required the product looks and feels like a normal high-end road bike.”
Ribble Endurance SLe will be presented to the market during the last Cycle Show 2018 at the Birmingham, (September 27 – 30) and it was one of the most interesting bikes presented there getting most of the press interest. The bike integrate the X35 Propulsion system produced and designed by MAHLE ebikemotion, including motor, battery and HMI platform.
