NEW Ribble Ultra Aero Road Bike | The Future of Aero Bike Design?

3 Просмотры
Is this the future of aero road bike design? Ribble has announced today the Ultra, which aims to be “the most aerodynamically advanced frameset in the world”.

It’s a new aero road bike with an aggressively aero-optimised frameset and a novel integrated handlebar design like nothing we’ve seen before!

Ribble says the “wake generating” bulges on the tops of the bar, manipulate the airflow over the rider to reduce aerodynamic drag compared to a standard aero handlebar, and Ribble claims the gains are significant.

BikeRadar's Technical Writer, Simon Bromley met up with Andy Smallwood, CEO of Ribble Cycles to learn more about the design process of the Ultra.
