Ritchey RL1 VentureMax Handlebar - Gravel | 31.8 - BB black

Ritchey RL1 VentureMax Handlebar - Gravel | 31.8 - BB black

Tom Ritchey was on the dirt decades before anyone thought of calling it gravel riding or bikepacking, and he developed products for those adventures. His practical experience flows directly into every Ritchey product, such as the popular VentureMax handlebar. With its short reach, shallow drop and pronounced bulge, it offers comfort and confidence for those who want to have fun on dirt dropbar adventures. The wide 24 degree flare on the drops further enhances comfort and off-road performance.

Just like the WCS and Comp handlebars, the RL1 VentureMax is shaped by Tom Ritchey's life experiences and inspires new adventures on gravel as well as other mixed surfaces. It also offers proven reliability as well as performance for those looking for affordable components to upgrade their current bike or complete their next build.
