Improving existing products or creating something new has always been the hallmark of the component manufacturer Ritchey. In the 1970s together with like-minded friends, Tom Ritchey tinkered with old bikes and parts from the motocross sector in order to be able to master the gravel descents in the hills of Marin Country. Dissatisfaction with the heavy and unstable bikes of the time and a lot of inventiveness led to the emergence of the „Ritchey-Mountainbike“. In 1983 Tom Ritchey founded his company Ritchey Design and began designing and developing his own frames and components. The click pedal for mountain bikes is just one of many innovations that can be traced back to Ritchey.
Whether professional or hobby biker, mountain, gravel or road bike, there is hardly any other manufacturer that more riders and bike companys trust in than Ritchey. The product portfolio covers all areas of application and has been continuously expanded over the years: in addition to frames, it mainly consists of parts for the cockpit, such as stems, handlebars and grips and other accessories from headsets to saddles, seatposts and pedals. Functionality, lightness and design are always in the foreground, in order to give every type of cyclist maximum riding pleasure. The Ritchey company also applies rigorous fatigue tests to ensure the durability of its products.
At Ritchey, every cyclist will find the right product to suit his or her needs and budget: the Ritchey WCS line (World Championship Series), together with the Supersonic line, is the high-end standard for ultra-light, durable and ergonomically designed accessories. The rainbow stripe of the WCS logo represents the numerous world champions who have won competitions on Ritchey bikes. For bikers who do not want to compromise on weight and durability, Ritchey WCS handlebars, stems and seat posts are available in the carbon version. Alternatively, the cheaper aluminum versions can be used. The components of the Ritchey Comp and Classic series have been developed to provide robust and lightweight components at an attractive price level. Therefore everyone can personally experience the performance and timeless design.
