Many people wonder what the Curve is all about. It refers to the geometry and bend of the drops of the bar. The drops have a decreasing radius bend or curve as it were, which falls somewhere between a round and anatomic bend and profile. It allows for a true anatomic fit that are achieved without specific bends, so hand positions in the drops are infinite and comfortable in any position. The actual drop length is 128mm, so it considered a Compact drop - this is the new way of saying semi-shallow drop.
The Ritchey WCS Carbon Curve is made from lightweight 3K carbon weave which is light and durable and lends itself to being shaped and profiled. The finish of the carbon is gloss. This adds more durability and cleans up well after use. One deep groove underneath the tops hides any and all cables and housings. The Carbon Curve is available in 40cm-44cm widths and has a 31.8mm bar clamp diameter.
The carbon curve bar is a very good handlebar from Ritchey I have ever used. Compare with other brand the Carbon Curve is a bit heavier however it handles the heavy load when sprint. I also like the short reach of the bar that really fit me.
Pros: Very comfortable
This carbon handle bar is very comfortable regardless the weigh it handles the full load when you are off the saddle to climb.
