Creates extra friction between two surfaces, allowing tightening torque to be reduced by up to 30%.
Ritchey Liquid Torque creates extra friction between two surfaces, allowing tightening torque to be reduced by up to 30%. This is especially useful in clamping areas, such as between a handlebar and stem, or fork steerer tube and stem - two areas where too much clamping torque can damage componentry, causing component failure or a voided warranty.
Carbon fiber components are particularly sensitive to the damage that can be caused by too much clamping force. In addition to reducing clamping force, Ritchey Liquid Torque also relieves stress on sensitive carbon surfaces, prevents damage to the fibers and eliminates cracking. It also provides maximum protection against corrosion and retains its effectiveness in wet conditions.
Ritchey Liquid Torque can be used for all carbon, aluminum and steel connections, including:
Adequate lubrication allows smooth continuous operation of equipment, with only mild wear, and without excessive stresses or seizures at bearings. When lubrication breaks down, metal or other components can rub destructively over each other, causing destructive damage, heat, and premature avoidable failure. The right lubricant will keep your bike working properly for much longer and will save you a heap of money in the long run. You'll need a thin, dry lube for the cables and pivots of your brakes and gears. This will resist water and won't attract dirt. Chains require something heavier and will use different lubes for the different seasons. In the summer, a White Lightning type lube will keep them clean and protected but wetter weather means you'll need a more tenacious alternative.
Ritchey is well known for ingenious mountain bikes and parts, but Tom Ritchey was building world class road frames and rethinking every part of the road bike as early as 1974---long before mountain biking came along. After decades of refinement, Ritchey road components are the lightest, strongest and highest quality parts available, and race proven by top professional teams in the world's toughest pro races. Look for Ritchey components on team bikes in the Tour de France, Giro d'Italia, World Championships and Spring Classics, as well as countless other races.
