Ritchey’s WCS VentureMax Handlebar was designed for a more stable platform for when riding on roads less traveled. The bars work well across the entire gravel spectrum, including light cross country, touring, fire roads and variable terrain. The wider drop flares serve up added stability, while the bio curves, perfected over the past decade, serve up the ultimate in comfort. This WCS level bar is constructed from triple butted 7050 alloy and features a durable burnish finish which is black anodized.

Due to the flare, the VentureMax is measured at the initial bend rather than at the hood. Add 12.5cm to the size for the full width outside to outside.
