Ribble Cycles Gravel SL

“All-out speed, agility, and fun. Wherever your off-road rides may take you, the Gravel SL goes all-out with breath-taking performance and style. Its lightweight yet robust carbon monocoque construction and aero profile have been designed to carry speed over the most extreme trails and offer a planted feel on technical terrain.” – Ribble Cycles Gravel SL

Zipp 303 S Wheelset: “Zipp’s 303 S Tubeless Disc Brake wheelset provides today’s cyclists the versatility they demand with the speed they crave. Expanding greatly on its heritage of conquering the Spring Classics, this 303 wheelset maintains its ideal-for-every-terrain 45mm rim depth but adds a significantly wider internal width to provide greater performance and ride quality in almost every measurable way.” – Link to Gravel Cyclist’s Review
