This Ritchey WCS C260 Wet White Stem is no longer available although you may find similar or newer versions below:
At 103 grams this is lightest, most advanced alloy stem in the Ritchey line, and possibly the world.
|Bar Clamp Size:||31.8mm|
This revolutionary patented design starts with a bar clamp that wraps a full 260 degrees around the handlebar to distribute clamping stress more evenly through the handlebar, faceplate, hardware and stem body. The steer tube clamp uses three bolts and a curved slot to reduce clamp stress on the steer tube.
The body is 3D forged from an advanced 7050 aluminium and internally machined for further weight reduction. Premium quality CrMo steel bolts are used throughout, but in a smaller M4 size that shaves a few more grams with no sacrifice in strength or rigidity.
The resulting CEN-approved stem is 20 grams lighter and even stiffer than our already stiff and lightweight 4Axis.
These words evoke the core philosophy behind Ritchey's highest performance components. Over the years, Ritchey components have carried riders to victory from the Olympics to the World Cup circuit, National Championships and, of course, World Championship titles, too. Using the latest technology and materials to create components that provide weight savings without sacrificing strength, we proudly invite you to bolt on some of our WCS parts and share a bit of Ritchey's racing heritage with us. WCS by Ritchey - it's all in the name.
Covering the needs of the full spectrum, from elite competitors to recreational riders, are our WCS, Pro and Comp lines. As technology and materials evolve, so does our product line, allowing us to bring you lighter, stronger parts that deliver category leading performance and value, from WCS Carbon through Comp.
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.
