Ribble CGR AL e Step Through Enthusiast – Shimano 105

Ribble's CGR AL e Step Through is one of the modern generation of e-bikes that doesn't shout that it has an electronic heart. It's powered by a MAHLE ebikemotion X35 36V/250Wh motor neatly housed in the rear hub, which delivers 40Nm of torque. This is the same system used by the likes of Merida, Orbea, Lapierre, Cannondale among others, which should ensure its long-term viability. The CGR's battery is fitted in the down-tube and can't be taken out to be charged. Instead there's an unobtrusive charging port over the bottom bracket, with a rubber seal to keep the elements out.

Ribble CGR AL e (SRAM Apex 1x 650b) review

The Ribble CGR AL e is a cracking bike for the money. Comfortable, stable and capable over very rough ground or while effortlessly eating up road miles, it adds intuitive, discreet electric assist to a fundamentally great chassis. It's a bike that opens up huge possibilities (for all levels of rider) in covering serious ground – and having a lot of fun along the way.
