Gravel Bike of the Year Finalist
BEST OF
BRITISH STEEL

Designed, built, and tested in the UK, the CGR 725 is manufactured from the finest Reynolds steel tubing, tubing produced as it has been for over a century at their factory situated in the very heart of England.

REYNOLDS STEEL
TUBING

The frameset is manufactured from British Reynolds 725 steel tubing which is triple butted with seamless welds for exceptional strength and durability whilst offering that compliant ride quality that is synonymous with a high-quality steel frame.

MODERN DESIGN
FEATURES

*All cables are routed internally through the frame to enhance the sleek look of the bike as well as provide additional protection for the cables. There's ample clearance front and rear which improves the CGR 725's mud-shedding ability as well as enabling tyres up to 47mm in width on 650b wheels and 45mm on 700c wheels to be fitted, which certainly ticks all the boxes for mixed terrain riding.

*Rear brake hose is external on double gear systems.

FULL CARBON
FORK

A full carbon construction with a tapered fork steerer helps to stiffen up the front end for enhanced steering control while also damping vibration from rough surfaces for a bump smoothing ride.

DISC
BRAKES

Flat-mount disc brakes provide superior stopping power and control over variable terrain and in mixed conditions.

MULTI- WHEEL SIZE
COMPATIBLE

Compatibility with 650b, 700c or 29er wheels opens up a vast choice of tyre options and allows the setup to be tailored to suit a wide array of terrains, surfaces and riding styles.

Custom Colour

Treated myself to a CGR 725 Pro which arrived last week - I am 61 next month and have decided finally that I'm more interested in comfort than speed (favoured road bike for the last few years has been a very sporty Kinesis racelite, with a Cannondale Synapse as a winter bike). Was not disappointed - obviously slightly heavier and slightly harder to get up some of the (shortish) climbs around Wetherby & Tadcaster but so, so much more comfortable on the rutted, potholed, crud-covered minor roads of North Yorkshire than my other bikes. Handling was fine, Brooks Cambium saddle comfy enough for a first 60 km outing, gear changing smooth and quick; braking similarly sure. Minor squeak from the front mudguard at speed (28 kph+) but only when riding with one hand on the handlebars - can't quite work out what that is but I'll try to sort it next time. Thoroughly recommend it as a solid bike for someone who wants to get where they are going safely and in comfort. As I said on my Twitter feed immediately that first ride - it felt like a host of angels was blowing gently on my buttocks, the ride was so soft!

Couldn't be happier with my new bike and the level of service from Ribble.The quality of the workmanship is first-rate. The bike came assembled which saved a lot of time and hassle. I was kept up to date all the way through the order process and the finance was really straightforwards too.
