Ritchey WCS Carbon ErgoMax Handlebar - 31.8 | Road - Matte UD

Ritchey WCS Carbon ErgoMax Handlebar - 31.8 | Road - Matte UD

When Tom Ritchey clips into his bike, he rarely knows where in the journey leads. Whether it's straight onto a narrow Singletrail, briskly on endless asphalt roads or for hours over gravel – the WCS Carbon ErgoMax takes its rider anywhere.


ADAPTABLE. The idea behind the ErgoMax drop bar is to always be equipped with the right tool to take full advantage of a wide variety of riding surfaces. Like the original model, the WCS Carbon version aims to adapt comfort and control to different conditions.

VERSATILE. And this tightrope act succeeds. When riding in the drops, Ritchey's WCS Carbon ErgoMax handlebar puts your hands in a wider, more stable position, making it ideal for the challenges of loose, dirty terrain. In contrast, road cyclists benefit from the special ergonomics that guarantee unparalleled comfort during endurance rides on smooth, clean asphalt.

ERGONOMIC. While the carbon fiber construction not only keeps weight down but also helps dampen vibrations, the 15 mm of Rise in the center of the handlebars allows for a more upright riding position. The 5° Backsweep in combination with the handlebar's aerodynamically shaped top section counteract arm and hand fatigue. More stability in curves or when riding out of the saddle offer the 12° Drop Flare, which keep the hands in a comfortable grip position.
