Whether a daily commute or a trans-continental expedition, the Ascent is built for adventure. Capable of fitting 650b mountain tires, 700c road tires or anything in between, there is little this bike cannot do. Available in four sizes, the Ascent is perfectly paired with Zeta Disc wheels and the EvoMax bas for the most versatile, capable Ritchey ever.

Mount a drop bar, like the Ritchey WCS VentureMax, strap on some packs, and take off for a full weekend of adventure. Or rock a straight mountain bike bar and wider MTB tires and conquer some of the more rugged adventures you might seek. Sporting rack and fender mounts, the adaptability, practicality and fun of the Ascent make it the perfect vehicle for your two-wheeled adventure experience.
