The Richey WCS Carbon Low Rizer bar is constructed from UD carbon that has been internally relieved in lower stress areas to keep the weight down. They are also reinforced in high stress areas for reliability. This process not only lightens the bar but makes it stronger and very stiff. The natural composition of UD carbon also adds an element of vibration dampening.
All the technical copy writing aside, the bars really shine in the field. They will provide you with a lightweight product that will work day in and day out without issue. They could have made them appear lighter by chopping down the width, instead Ritchey made the right decision to keep them at 660mm. The wider bar provides a much more stable ride with superior control.
The bar is coated with a gloss finish which protects the carbon and makes cleaning them a simple procedure. Low profile Ritchey WCS graphics are applied on each side of the bar clamp. Measurement marks make them easy to center and adjust to the proper angle. Ritchey has been producing some of the industry's best handlebars since the mid eighties and the tradition continues with the WCS Carbon low rise bars.
