A CustomColour adds £299 to the price of the bike for either a Gloss or Metallic paint finish. Gloss is a standard paint with lacquer over the top which provides the gloss aspect of the finish. A Metallic colour reflects light more than gloss and results provides a little bit of of sparkle and adds more colour depth.
The Matt finish costs an additional £50 on top of the £299 CustomColour cost for a total upgrade price of £349. The final option is the glitter colourway which can be seen on Ribble Pro Cycling’s team bike. This option costs an additional £200 on top of the CustomColour upgrade price of £299. This finish looks stunning when in direct sunlight.
Frame Colour – Select the main colour of the frame and forks. You can opt for a single colour or a 2 tone finish (gradient).
Decal Colour – This allows you to change the colour of the Ribble decals that run along the downtube. (see image above).
Gradient – Gradient is a fade effect and allows you to mix 2 colours for a 2 tone frame and fork combination.
Gradient Angle – The standard gradient option has 1 solid colour at the top which gradually fades vertically into a second colour. There are also 45°, 90° and 135° options available which changes the angle of where on the frame the fade occurs.
Accents – The accents are the transfers mounted on the seat tube and forks. There will normally be 3 or 4 accents, dependant upon the frame. The colour of each accent can be independently selected so they can even all be different colours! Or, if you prefer you can choose to have no accents at all (see image below).
