San Carlos, California, is the home of Ritchey Design, which is recognized worldwide as one of the leading manufacturers of high-quality bicycle components. Founded in 1974 by Tom Ritchey, the company actively designs new products while constantly improving existing components, refining their lightness and durability with relentless drive. We call this “relentless innovation”. The company is known for its technical excellence, which is the result of attention to detail during the product development phase. This is combined with rigorous fatigue testing, resulting in high quality components for road and mountain bikes. Ritchey products are race proven and still a benchmark for quality.
As part of its Fit Logic philosophy, Ritchey Design offers a wide range of cockpit components (handlebars, stems, seatposts and headsets). With their help, riders can customize their bikes for a more efficient and comfortable ride. Ritchey Design also offers complete bikes, frames and a full range of innovative products. These include pedals, carbon wheels, carbon forks, saddles and tyres suitable for both professional racers and the ambitious weekend rider.
Ritchey knows that the performance of a great bike is the sum of its parts. Grips on the right handlebars, attached to the stem with perfect length, steering sturdy wheels and working in unison with the right tires. Having set countless industry standards in all disciplines, Tom Ritchey continues to raise the bar for excellence in bicycle components. A good selection of the right components will help to make the trip even more enjoyable. The freedoms that a bike can offer are like nothing else in this world.
