Ribble has introduced a new titanium Endurance Ti Disc road bike to its extensive range.
The Ribble Endurance Ti Disc has a frame that’s made from custom profiled and tapered triple-butted 3AL/2.5V titanium with brushed finish detailing, with a chrome head badge.
The medium sized model has a 55cm top tube, 51cm seat tube and 15cm head tube. The stack is 541mm and the reach is 390mm. Those figures point to a geometry that's aggressive for an endurance bike.
The seatstays are dropped (they join the seat tube much lower than the junction with the top tube), the idea being to increase compliance and improve power transfer to the drivetrain, and you get a 44mm head tube with a full-carbon monocoque front fork and tapered steerer for front-end stiffness.
The cables are routed internally.
There is clearance for tyres up to 32mm wide without mudguards fitted, or up to 28mm if you fit mudguards using the mounts provided.
Ribble claims a weight of 1.6kg for the frame and 470g for the fork. A medium sized bike built up with Shimano Ultegra components is about 9.8kg.
If you prefer can use Ribble’s online BikeBuilder tool to choose your own spec based on your preferences and budget.
The frame has a three-year warranty against manufacturing defects.
