Ribble Cycles has launched the new CX SL.
It features an advanced monocoque construction with full EPS inner-core system for consistent strength and improved torsional stiffness. Race-proven geometry provides ‘razor-sharp’ handling, control and stability with the optimised tube profiles and carbon lay up enabling high levels of power transfer combined with compliance and vibration damping through the dropped seat stays across varied terrains and race situations.
Frame and fork mud clearance has been maximised and a disc brake specific specification further enhances control and grip combined with optimum stopping power.
“Cyclo-cross racing is the essence of high-performance cycling, combining high levels of bike handling, power and fitness over varied and challenging terrain,” said Andy Smallwood, Ribble Cycles’ CEO.
“This made designing a high-end CX bike the perfect challenge for our accomplished R&D team and we are very proud of the result. The cutting edge CX SL, the latest bike in Ribble Cycles World Class product line up, is a bike as capable of winning on the world stage as it is cutting through local single-track trails.”
Jamie Burrow, Ribble’s head of design, added: “The CX SL is the perfect culmination of technology used to develop and fine-tune our award-winning performance SL road and gravel range.
“We have created a lightweight but incredibly robust monocoque platform with clean lines and fully internal routing thanks to the compatibility with our Level 5 integrated bar and stem system.”
The CX SL is available as suggested builds from £1,599, frame only option at £1,299 or use the BikeBuilder to create your optimum bike.
