Ribble or Orbea Gain

Are these exactly alike as far as the battery side is concerned? If not what are the pros and cons of each?

Having looked at both ranges in some detail (I have a Gain D40) the basic items appear to be pretty much the same - certainly the motor & control system, probably the frames (alloy & carbon) too.

There are variations on the groupsets and finishing kit which obviously affect price but my overall thought when looking at pretty much like-for-like across both manufacturers' models is that the Ribbles are just a higher priced Orbea range.

That said there is an element of confusion as model names and specs have been changed across the 2017/2018/2019 "seasons"


PS: I wonder where the Ribbles are made . . . . . .
