Seems Señor Ritchey held out on us a little when he introduced the new ultralight, ultra strong C260 stem last week.
Now we have word (and photo proof) that it’ll be available in all the colors as their 4-Axis stem, which includes Wet White, Wet Red, Wet Black and Bead Blasted Black. They’ll also have a Carbon Matrix version, shown above – though it’s hard to tell other than the “carbon” wording above WCS in the logo – that has a UD carbon fiber wrap over the alloy body. This adds about 16g but increases stiffness an additional 14%.
MSRP for the alloy is $109.95 in BB black, $119.95 for wet black, and $129.95 for wet white or wet red. The Matrix version is $159.99 and available in UD carbon only. All are available in 1-1/8″ only, though they do have a 1-1/4″ that’s not available to the public thanks to low demand.
