Ritchey WCS Flat Carbon Handlebar $139.95
Light and smooth.
Ritchey has taken its reputable WCS Flat Bar and developed a carbon version. The component manufacturer is calling it the WCS Flat Carbon Handlebar, and it relies on the same shape and dimensions as the alloy version, only it features a strong, sleek unidirectional carbon construction. As we all know, carbon is able to be tuned to provide specific ride characteristics, and this particular wrap has been tuned to provide torsional strength and vibration damping.
The Ritchey WCS Carbon Flat bar is compatible with 31.8mm clamp diameter stems, and it's available with a 580mm width. It has a five-degree rearward sweep, and the center of the bar is textured for increased grip with the clamp. The ends have been reinforced with thin alloy inserts for added durability when clamping shifters, brakes, and bar ends. The color is clear coat over carbon.
