Ritchey bet on white with the Wet White WCS gear for Mountain Bikers. Lets take a look to see what Ritchey are doing to keep MTBers stylish and lightweight.
WCS 1-bolt seat post in wet white
The SideBinder clamping technology makes saddle setup and adjustment faster and easier than ever. Simply loosen the single clamping bolt, adjust the saddle angle and rail position, tighten the bolt, and ride. 20mm Offset, different clamps for different rail dimensions are available.
WCS wet white bar ends
Superlightweight 85mm bar end with angled clamp slot to reduce stress on lightweight bars. 3-Net shaped cold forged one-piece design.
WCS Low Rizer Wet White MTB bar
240g 660mm wide
Lightweight cross-country, marathon and enduro bar with 20mm rise. Made out of proprietary Ritchey TR50 seamless, triple butted alloy (lighter than standard 6000 and 7000 series aluminum). Available in 31,8 oversized version for increased strength and rigidy.
WCS Flat Wet White Mountain bar
140g 580mm wide
Extreme lightweight cross-country and marathon bar made of seamless TR50 triple butted alloy.
WCS 4Axis Wet White Stem
3D-Net forged, 2014 aluminum for lightweight durability and unprecedented strength-to-weight ratio allows you to feel confident hammering up a hill despite the fact the stem weights a mere 132g (110mm/31,8). The specially designed forged and contoured 4-bolt faceplate controls flex and distributes clamping forces across a larger area, as well as provides strength and security by reducing wear damage on the handlebar due to clamping stresses and vibration. Another exclusive Ritchey design, the angled steerer clamp with opposing bolts evenly dissipates clamping forces on steerer tubes, especially carbon steerer, while at the same time it helps develop a solid connection between stem and steerer.
