Experience Unrivalled Speed with Ribble Ultra SL R’s Aero Design & Top-Tier Components

Aerodynamic Speed Meets Customised Style

Imagine embarking on a quest, a journey in pursuit of absolute, unfettered speed. You're seeking a partner that can keep up, a companion that's been honed to perfection in its singular purpose – conquering the open road. That companion is the Ribble Ultra SL R, a bike that makes no apologies for its obsession with speed and aerodynamics.

Now, let's face it, the mere mention of the word ‘aero' can make your heart race. It's a term synonymous with speed, with slicing through the wind with nary a hair out of place. And when you learn that this beast has been designed to perform at peak capacity in crosswinds commonly experienced at 5-10° of YAW, you understand that you're not just dealing with a machine, but a revolutionary piece of engineering that's been thoughtfully constructed to turn the air into an ally rather than an adversary.

And how, you may ask, has Ribble managed to pull off such a feat? Through painstaking, meticulous design, optimising every facet of the bike for aerodynamic performance. The innovative Ultra Aero handlebar, for example, has been forged with an intense focus on the interaction between bike and rider. This results in a design that creates a drag reduction zone for the rider's legs, transforming you and the bike into a harmonious, aerodynamic unit that seems to glide through the wind.

When it comes to the body of the beast, every contour and curve of the frame, fork and seat post has been subject to extensive analysis and testing. From the optimised head tube area to the streamlined seat tube profile that works in harmony with the rear wheel, no aspect has been overlooked in the quest for minimal drag and maximum speed.

It's not just the frame that shines; the Ultra SL R comes outfitted with state-of-the-art Shimano components. No matter which variant you choose – the Hero, the Enthusiast, or the Sport – each component, from the Dura Ace Di2 to the Ultra Aero Carbon Integrated Handlebars, contributes to a seamless, thrilling ride.

Yes, the price tag might make your eyes water a bit. But think about what you're getting – a machine meticulously optimised for real-world conditions, promising not just raw speed but the sheer joy of achieving it. And with the option to choose from millions of color combinations, you get a bike that’s not only exceptionally fast but uniquely yours.

If you're an adrenaline junkie, a speed enthusiast, or just someone who loves the exhilaration of riding a machine built for ultimate performance, this, my friend, might just be your dream come true. The Ribble Ultra SL R is not just a bike. It's a statement, a testament to what's possible when speed, innovation, and sheer obsession come together. Get ready to dominate the straight line and defeat the wind. Buckle up, it's going to be one hell of a ride.
