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.
