The Ribble Three Year Warranty does not apply to products that are not Ribble-branded, even if packaged or sold with Ribble products. Non-Ribble branded products will have a manufacturer's warranty provided by the product manufacturer. Please see your product box and literature for details.
All new Ribble frames and forks are sold with a 3-year manufacturer’s warranty which will cover structural defects in material or manufacturing arising during the course of normal use. The warranty will commence from the date the bike is received by the buyer.
A 3 year warranty is applicable to all Ribble branded frames and forks sold after February 1st 2018. For bikes sold prior to this date please refer to the warranty terms on the date the bike was purchase. For assistance on this matter please phone 01772 963 400 with your order number and date of purchase and one of our Customer Service Advisors will be able to give you details on the warranty terms that apply to your bike.
Ribble’s warranty is offered to the original buyer of the bike only and cannot be transferred or extended to a third party.
Ribble reserves the right to physically inspect any frame or fork suspected of being faulty or defective. We may ask for images or descriptions of a fault to help us process a warranty claim before asking for the frame or fork to be returned. Any requests for additional details are to assist with a warranty claim and are not in lieu of a physical inspection.
Wherever possible we will look to repair or replace faulty products free of charge in the first instance where a fault is identified. Replacements will be offered on a like-for-like basis where the value of the replacement goods will match the value of the faulty goods at the original time of purchase. While we will endeavour to offer an exact replacement we are not able to guarantee replacement products will be an exact, aesthetic, match for the original in terms of style, colourway or graphics all of which may change between model years. Replacements will be offered based on stock availability at the time of a warranty claim.
