Ritchey produce an extensive range of bars, stems, seatposts, saddles, wheels, tyres, headsets, pedals, forks, grips as well as many other bicycle parts and accessories. All of Ritchey’s components go through extensive fatigue and impact testing by an independent German test lab.
Meaning, that before a proposed design finds its way onto a tester’s bike, it has already been proven structurally and then some. Prototypes endure rigorous use by both amateur and professional riders alike; including Ritchey’s sponsored athletes around the world. By the time you put it on your bike, it has passed a global testing and approval process second to none.
