WCS (WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES)
- These words evoke the core philosophy behind Ritcheys highest performance components. The rainbow stripe WCS logo represents the numerous world champions that have won on Ritchey. The WCS line is the gold standard for lightweight, bombproof race parts and cutting edge innovation.
Tom Ritcheys original 4-Axis stem changed stem design forever. From the stress-managing forged faceplate, bolt spacing and angled steer tube slot to the now-ubiquitous 3D net forging process, the 4-Axis is still the standard in lightweight, stiff and strong stems.
