Whatever style of riding you’re into and whatever your cycling ambitions, there’s an electric bike out there to help you enjoy your riding that bit more.

Take Ribble’s e-bike range. It’s evolved and expanded as more and more people take to e-bikes and now includes flat bar hybrids and electric gravel bikes for off-road adventures as well as its multiple award-winning road e-bike range.

 Lightweight and versatile 


Ribble uses the same Mahle ebikemotion motor system in all its electric bikes. It’s super-lightweight at 3.5kg for the entire system of rear hub motor, battery and unobtrusive controller, but still offers 250 watts of power and 40Nm torque output. 

It’s a system that provides a good level of support for riders of a wide range of abilities and which can be tuned for different uses, while the 250 watt-hour battery provides plenty of range. There’s no frictional loss in the drivetrain as the motor drives the rear wheel directly rather than through the bike’s gears.

The motor’s light weight has allowed Ribble to build what it says is the lightest electric bike range in the world including the Ribble Endurance SL e, the lightest e-road bike with the top spec Hero build with Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 electronic shifting and Level DB35 Superlight EBM aero carbon wheels as light as 10.5kg - not much heavier than many non-assisted bikes.
