This is Ritchey Designs top offering in an lightweight and anatomical alloy road bar. It is the same as the standard Logic II except with the glossy Wet Black finish. From a glance, this treatment makes the bar appear to look like UD carbon.
The round tops have grooves for cables and feature the R65 (65° radius) bend - where they bend from the tops to the to the brake/shift levers. This offers quick movement and changing of hand positions on the bar. The R65 bend also provides better forearm clearance when hammering in the drops. The drops have a distinct anatomic flat spot for secure grip and comfort when you dip down to the hooks. Slight 2° bend on the bottom of the bar increase stability.
Ritchey employs Fit Logic on the Logic II bar. This means the reach and drop are adjusted for each size/width bar. the wider the bar, the deeper and longer the reach. This size-specific geometry makes a lot of sense and is as close as you can get to having a custom sized bar.
The WCS Logic II bars are made from Ritchey's proprietary TRX50 aluminum. This heat treated, triple butted alloy is both lighter and stronger than 7000 series alloys. After the fabrication process, the bars are finished with a high-gloss Wet Black finish. Simple etched graphics with measure marks are placed around the clamping area.
The WCS Logic II Wet Blacks are available in 40cm-44cm widths with a 31.8mm bar clamp diameter.
Best value bar out there given it's weight, stiffness and looks. The shape is brilliant! The three kinks on the bar gives me the most comfortable and natural hand position. I melt right into them. They made the front end of my bike feel more secured and sure footed. I still can't figure out how that's possible. I just can't praise them enough. I bought a second bar for my other bike the next day after trying them for the first time.
Pros: great value, great ergonomics, solid feel
Cons: none at all
