New Bike Release: Ritchey Ascent
Swiss Army knife of bikes
Ritchey’s previous Ascent shared more with its mountain bike forefather than any other bike in the Ritchey lineup. We knew it was necessary to make the 2021 Ascent even more adept at back-country adventures.
While maintaining the original geometry, we added key updates such as more tire clearance for both 650b and 700c, Boost spacing, and more mounting options on the frame, all built around a new steel straight steerer fork.
This bike is the epitome of what Ritchey is best known for – slaying dirt.
