The Ridgeback Panorama is the top bike in the World range. At its heart is a frame made from butted Reynolds 725 tubing, which is light yet strong enough to pull off fully-laden touring with ease. This is coupled with a light and springy triple butted cromoly fork. This bike is blessed with the highly respected Tektro Spyre mechanical disc brakes. Also with some high end parts cherry-picked from Shimano Deore XT, Deore and Sora to assemble a robust and fit-for-purpose 9 speed transmission.
Like the Voyage, the Panorama has been designed for the purpose of carrying large loads efficiently for long distances. The frame and the wheels are designed to cope with all the load permutations associated with 2 large rear panniers with a tent and sleeping bag between, 2 small front panniers, a bar bag and 3 bottle cages. The Shimano transmission spec delivers as low a gear as you could want, so geography, or topography, should present no barrier to your route choice.
The Panorama delivers low weight frame and forks, 27 speeds with a low bottom gear, Sora STI shift levers, light and strong wheels and a the best-in-class Tubus Cargo cro-moly rear rack. Perfect for long distance touring and expedition riding, you will get a lot of bike and a lifetime's fun.
Ridgeback's World range is a group of bikes for people who quite simply want to travel. The modern embodiment of the British tradition of bikes made for the open road. Characterised by traditional geometry frames with drop handlebars, these bikes will give you the confidence to plan to go further afield. Whether you're planning to trundle along the byways of these islands, or you're planning a year-long self-supported epic, there's a bike here for you.
As we have come to expect from Ridgeback, the bikes in the World range are equipped with sensible components unencumbered by fad or fashion. We love these purposeful steel bikes.
