Ribble Cycles has unveiled a brand new Pro Team Edition of its flagship speed machine, the Aero 883. The Pro Team Edition will be ridden throughout the 2018 season by the Ribble Pro Cycling team, which consists of UK National Champions and Track World Cup Gold Medallists including Dan Bigham and John Archibald.
The riders worked with Ribble Cycles’ former U23 world number one Jamie Burrow and the renowned Andy Smallwood to ‘spec a top class race machine’.
The Ribble Aero 883 Pro Team bike combines the aerodynamic and fast Aero 883 carbon frame – billed as Ribble’s fastest frame ever, a unique and eye-catching custom paint job, ZIPP wheels and finishing kit and a SRAM Red eTap groupset. According to Ribble, this produces ‘a top-spec, exciting, bright and stunning bike that begs to be ridden fast.’
What’s more, the Aero 883 Pro Team Edition is now available to purchase on Ribble’s BikeBuilder, so age group riders can ride the same bike as the professionals.
Jack Rees, Ribble Pro Cycling Rider / Manager said, “I think the public’s reaction to the bike mirrored that of the riders. We are both excited and delighted to be riding what we regard as the best bike in the UK peloton. The bike and equipment package is first class and we can’t wait to get racing.”
