Ritchey WCS Curve Handlebar
The WCS Curve is Ritchey's top offering in an alloy bar with the beoming-the-new-standard curve drops. 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. With a corresponding 73mm reach, this is an ideal bar for current shifter body designs and riders who prefer a nice flat transition to the shifter.
The WCS Classic bars are made from Ritchey's proprietary 7050 aluminum. This heat treated, triple butted alloy is both lighter and stronger than base 7000 alloy. After the fabrication process, the bars are ball burnished and anodized for added strength. Indented grooves under the tops of the bars hide your cables. Simple etched graphics with measure marks are placed around the clamping area.
The WCS Classics are available in 40cm-46cm widths with a 31.8mm bar clamp diameter.
