Summary of Reviews

We have read all expert and user reviews on the Ribble Endurance SL e. In summary, this is what cyclists think.

15 reasons to buy

  • With slick aero framework, the Endurance SL e looks like any non-electric road rig.
  • This bike’s light weight makes it easy to maintain high speeds on fast flats.
  • Acceleration is vigorous, with owners saying the Endurance SL e ‘leaped’ up hills.
  • Owners reported good range distances, from 55 to 83 miles over hilly terrain.
  • The Ebikemotion system is intuitive and customizable, with the Ebikemotion app.
  • An additional battery pack attaches easily, for extra ride time and distance.
  • Reviewers said the Endurance SL e is easy to pedal without electric assistance.
  • Experts said the high-end spec represented “serious” value for money.
  • Comfort was enhanced by 28mm tires, carbon bars and a carbon seatpost.
  • Shimano BR-R7070 Hydraulic brakes stopped powerfully, in wet and dry conditions.
  • With a 73º head angle, the Endurance SL e remains nimble and corners well.
  • As is standard with Ribble, the Endurance SL e is deeply customizable.
  • Most owner-reviewers found initial set-up of the bike to be simple.
  • On the Pro, electronic Di2 gearing was a “joy to use”.
  • Also on the Pro, Mavic Cosmic Pro Carbon UST wheels were fast and light.

5 reasons not to buy

  • Torque was not comparable to heavier 250W e-bikes.
  • Some riders found that instructions for the Ebikemotion system were insufficient.
  • The location of the Ebikemotion charging port seemed prone to pooling water.
  • The Panasonic battery was not removable, for charging purposes.
  • At speeds over 15mph, one expert felt slowed down by the weight of the rear hub.

Bottom line

It was said again and again, by reviewers and buyers alike, that the Ribble Endurance SL e could easily pass as a high-end road bike with no electric motor or battery. Such is the stealthiness of its svelte lines, that owners could easily mingle with analogue pedalers on group rides. And that’s where this bike seemed most at home. For those in need of extra assistance or longer days in the saddle, this lightweight wonder was a godsend. Experts and owners saw it as a worthy rival to Orbea’s Gain and compared it to Wilier’s Cento1 Hybrid, which uses the same motor system but asks a significantly higher price. A good value, high-end, lightweight road bike. The Ribble Endurance SL e still requested pedal input, while supplementing (rather than replacing) rider fitness.

Ribble Endurance SL e

The relatively low weight means you’re not paying a great penalty for the assistance when on the flat… we’d recommend this bike for a rider who still wants the fast responsive ride of a race bike, but with that little bit of extra help.

Ribble Endurance SLe Di2

Overall this is an excellent bike. Of the lightweight e-road bikes I’ve tested recently, it’s my firm favourite. It’s not giving away anything in terms of performance to the Wilier Cento1 Hybrid and it’s significantly lighter and less expensive.

Ribble have managed to perfectly integrate a usable, high quality electric assist system into a super-light chassis that has all the attributes of a cutting edge high-end road bike… it offers excellent value for money, especially when compared to its competitors.
