Grinduro brings framebuilders and bike companies from all over each year to display bikes these brands feel are appropriate for the gravel event. Ribble Cycles created a one-off titanium gravel bike showcasing SRAM’s eTap AXS wireless shifting and RockShox Rudy XPLR suspension fork.
The handcrafted titanium frame is created for wireless shifting. Combined with Ribble’s latest integrated carbon Level 5 Gravel bar with fully internal brake hose routing, it offers the cleanest possible look. Ribble’s long and low gravel geometry has also been optimized for the RockShox Rudy XPLR fork, enhancing the sublime handling and ride quality that titanium is best known for.
To top off the package the frame has been given a striking Ribble Custom Colour paint finish with a dynamic design that sweeps across the frame and RockShox Rudy Ultimate fork, yet still encapsulates the timeless nature of raw titanium.

The Rockstar Gravel Trail is a monster. Stretching 250 miles and climbing 25,000 vertical feet, it’s a grind to do as a multi-day ride.
