New Ribble Gran Fondo Disc
Wednesday 29th March 2017
As the name suggests, Ribble’s Gran Fondo has been modernised to offer Ribble’s most comfortable ride for longer distance event riding with the added stopping power, braking modulation and all-round reliability of disc brakes.
The geometry has been curated to help achieve the perfect on bike fit. The new Gran Fondo Disc benefits from a slightly longer headtube design for a less aggressive position on the bike. In addition, the headtube angle has been relaxed in conjunction with increasing the wheel base of the bike to provide a more stable ride. Combined, these changes ideally suit riders looking for an all-round more relaxed ride experience for epic days in the saddle who don’t want to compromise on braking ability.
The Shimano Di2 and Campagnolo EPS compatible Ribble Gran Fondo Disc is ideally suited to long distance sportive, or indeed, Gran Fondo riding where assured braking in both dry and wet conditions is vital.
James Dove, Ribble says: “Our Gran Fondo Disc is the perfect bike for those who are looking for a relaxed, comfortable ride with the bonus of more predictable braking offered by disc brakes. Adding a disc brake option to the Gran Fondo increases the versatility of the bike and means that there’s something for every type of rider in the Ribble range including this spectacular bike with superior stopping power.”
