The design goal for the Ritchey WCS Carbon Trail Rizer was simple -- take the already successful WCS line of mountain bars, and increase both its strength and rigidity. Not surprisingly, Ritchey surpassed its goal. As a result, the Trail Rizer is the widest bar in the Ritchey lineup, not to mention the strongest. However, while still remaining in the sub-200 gram category, we find that these advancements haven't arrived at the sacrifice of weight. To be more precise, the WCS Carbon Trail Rizer is 740mm wide, and it features a 15mm rise. These characteristics place the bars respectably within the all-mountain category of riding. In fact, Ritchey developed a new carbon layup process for these bars in order to bolster its resilience to big hits. Additionally, the carbon fiber design absorbs a great deal of trail chatter. So, you'll be able to confidently negotiate technical trail sections without worry of berating your upper-body. The Ritchey WCS Carbon Trail Rizer is available in the color Matte Black and in a 740mm width. Please note that these bars were designed to work in conjunction with the Ritchey WCS Trail Stem, however, they're compatible with any 31. 8mm clamp diameter stem.
