Ritchey offers with the TRAIL group lightweight components for AM and Enduro bikes!

Finally – legendary Ritchey performance and reliability for the modern 5-inch travel trail bike. Wider bars, longer posts, and beefy zero rise stem designed for trail riders by Tom Ritchey, the original trail rider.

With the complete new Blatte finish the TRAIL alloy components are very scratch resistant, extremely durable and the matte finish fits perfectly to the new generation of bikes. The stem is bead blasted, anodized and then the Blatte finish is applied, resulting in a very tough, durable and aesthetically pleasing finish.

The carbon that is used for the TRAIL bars is a high-modulus carbon fiber and the bars are monocoque construction. All bars are tested to exceed EN required testing standards by well over 100% and undergo severe impact testing as well.


Ritchey’s new WCS Trail stem is perfect for today’s modern trail bikes in the 5- 6in travel range. It’s visibly beefier for increased stiffness and a look that better matches modern head tube/frame designs, and Ritchey’s proprietary 220 degree, extra-wide bar clamp provides a dramatic increase in stiffness and strength over traditional designs.
