The New Ritchey ultra is the bike we’ve been waiting for for ages, a plus bike, built for ripping trail, but equally at home riding big epic cross country routes.
The geo is balanced perfectly for both.. not too slack, not too steep.
The frame is triple butted, giving it that special Ritchey ride feel while keeping the weight to a minimum.
We wanted to give Laura more confidence on descents than on her previous 26″ cotic soul, so we fitted the best brakes money can buy (Hope) and plus tyres to soak up all the rocks and roots.
We also wanted the bike to climb like a demon, and the Ritchey does just that!
This build is one of three we’ll have leaving the shop soon, the other two will be set up with 29 inch wheels, to keep them a little faster on XC terrain.
keep your eyes peeled for the next two.
Let us know if you think the Ritchey Ultra is the bike for you!
We will be posting a Ritchey Ultra review after a bit of testing.
Frames retail at £899.
