Ritchey WCS NeoClassic Handlebar: Matte Black (NEW 2019 Version)




An updated version of a timeless handlebar bend, the new NeoClassic design from Ritchey has cracked the code for most classic bend lovers. Ritchey maintained the shorter reach, redefined the the classic curve to match, kept the bar shallow, but made sure the end of the bar was flat and long enough for true hand placement flexibility. The drop is accessible and comfortable for most riders. 

The NeoClassic offers more hand positions in the drops than anatomical and ergo bends, and is the preferred bend style of countless pro-riders.
