EB14: New Ritchey WCS Trail Wheels, 35mm Bar & Stem, Lightweight Carbon Road Components, Teasers & More!
As usual, Ritchey’s tradeshow booth was littered with new products for both road and mountain bikes, along with a prototype part. Technically, it’s a teaser to a possible prototype, but we’ve put the pieces together and it’s looking good.
As for production parts, the new WCS Trail 650B mountain bike wheels bring their wider, tougher component line to the middle sized wheel market. The hubs are convertible between QR and thru axles front and rear -including 20mm for the front- and the freehub can be standard or XD Driver. Disc mounts are Centerlock, sitting on forged hubs rolling on oversized sealed bearings. Inside width is 25mm.
