Ritchey WCS Curve Bar

Ritchey WCS Curve Bar

Ritchey Bicycle Components have released a new shallow drop road bar, Curve Bar,  available in aluminum or carbon.  With a respectable 235g (alum) and 210g (carbon) this handlebar could be found on many women’s bars in the upcoming season. Pricing will be between $95-285 dependent on alum/carbon.

Details from Ritchey

•Fixed shallow 128mm drop with a smooth transition for a comfortable hand position
•Allows rider to set up for aggressive positioning in the drops as well as the tops
•Extended center section is compatible with clip-on bars
•Sanded stem and brake lever mount sections for no-slip component grip
•Available in 40/42/44cm widths
•Drop/Reach: 128/73mm

I hope to get a pair of these in on my cyclocross bike, I think the drop and reach would compliment cantilevers very well.  Keep your eye out for those coming to the Bike Shop Girl headquarters.

    But of course they don’t make it in a 38…. What about us narrow shouldered ladies? Limited options 🙁

      Encourage them, give them feedback! I can say as a pretty high volume, womens shop, I may sell six of a 38cm bar a year…
