Break-Away Carbon Road Frameset
“An innovative design that offers a true road bike performance while being packable into a suitcase-sized travel bag.”–Road.cc
“"Great feeling road race bike-you'd never know it could fit in a suitcase too.”
“The Break-Away feels like a bona fide, card carrying road bike that just happens to be able to split in two.”
“After just one trip with the Break-Away, we were already on our way to recouping the cost of the frameset.”
“A full sized road frame designed for easy travel, but it's an impressive performer that could easily become a daily ride.”
The patented Ritchey Break-Away® design has been heralded by mainstream cycling media as one of the most innovative bikes on the market today. This incredible blend of travel convenience and no-compromise performance is now available in a lightweight, stiff yet silky smooth full-carbon version.
Carbon fiber bikes for travel? Yes. Ritchey has offered the Titanium Carbon Break-Away (with a full-carbon rear triangle and fork) for years with no issues. Our carbon fiber designs are very strong—the force required to damage your Carbon Break-Away while packed in its case would have also damaged any frame of any material.
The carbon tubes designed from the ground, up with optimal stiffness, ride quality and durability in mind. Tom Ritchey's "Right-Sized" carbon tubing specification balances stiffness and compliance for a sublime ride quality, and this travel-ready bike enjoys classic Ritchey geometry. A Ritchey WCS Carbon road fork included with this frameset., and the bike features room for larger road tires (up to 700x28c depending on make and model)
The Break-Away kit here includes a Ritchey Break-Away travel case and padding, and a Ritchey 4Nm Break-Away torque key.
