As important as the frame that pilots them, Ritchey wheels are as meticulously designed as any component that bears the Ritchey logo. With a careful understanding of the forces that are exerted upon them, Ritchey wheel systems are built with the principal that each piece is to do its job perfectly, with no compromise. The result is a wheel that is reactive and lively within its environment whether it's the trail or tarmac.
Bicycles are only as good as the wheels that carry them. The core of all Ritchey adventure wheels, 2-Piece hubs feature a forged flange with stress-reducing spoke beds built-in for J-bend spokes, reducing likelihood of spoke failure. Combined with a staggered flange, no spoke touches its crossing partner, allowing them to pull true tension without interference - making a stronger, stiffer wheel.
Our high profile carbon tubulars and clinchers are hand-built, race-proven and uncompromising. The Ritchey line of alloy road wheels also delivers, with models that stand up to the rigors of training and racing. Hallmarks of all Ritchey road wheels include lateral stability and vertical compliance. Precision bearings, zero dish rear wheels and DT spokes and nipples keep these hoops fast and true. And our clincher rims feature machined braking surfaces to help you stop on a dime when you need to, or feather your speed on the way into a tight hairpin.
A pioneer in mountain bike component design, Tom Ritchey saw the unique demands off-road riding would pose to the early mountain bikes and how wheels undergo rigorous stress that is not seen in most other cycling disciplines. That foresight and unwavering dedication to excellence has informed every wheel ever made by Ritchey. Combine that with a never-ending quest for innovation, and you see why Ritchey MTB wheels are still winning races after all these years.
