UK bike company Ribble have notched their gravel range up a level with the launch of the new hand painted Stone Collection series.
The model offerings features a unique series of three custom colour and painted finishes to the world-class Gravel SL platform.
Ribble say their Stone Collection draws inspiration from rock formations found in the natural world, bedrock and landscapes associated with the adventurous exploration of gravel riding and is available in three effects; Marble White, Granite Grey and Slate Black.
“With this all-new paint finish, we are proudly showcasing the design, craftmanship and true technical capabilities of our team and our newly upgraded in-house paint facility,” says Jamie Burrow, Head of Product at Ribble .
“Each hand painted bespoke bike is a unique work of art – no two paint finishes will ever be the same. Our Custom Colour option allows our customers incredible levels of personalisation when buying their ideal and unique ride,” he said.
The Stone Collection applied to the Carbon Gravel SL will be the bike of choice at the Gravel World Championships in Veneto for the three Elite Ribble Collective riders selected to compete for Team GB.
Maddy Nutt, a Ribble Collective rider, has been riding her Gravel SL at races around the world this year including Unbound, Gravel Earth Series and Raiders Gravel.
“I’m thrilled to be representing Team GB on this lush new Stone Collection Custom Colour machine at the Gravel World Championship,” said Maddy.
The three Stone finishes are available across the Ribble Gravel range of carbon, aluminium, steel & e-bikes via the CustomColour option.
To highlight this exclusive new finish further, Ribble has created a special Gravel SL Marble Hero build with Shimano GRX Di2 1×11-Speed, Zipp 303 S wheels and LEVEL 5 Carbon Integrated flared handlebars at £4,499 / $AU7,000.
