Ritchey's WCS Carbon Rizer allows you to have an all mountain product at a low cross country weight. Due to top shelf engineering, there is no lack of stiffness or strength penalty due to the shaved grams. They are as stout as any AM handlebar produced today.
The Richey WCS Carbon 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.
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.
