Ritchey WCS Carbon Rizer £114.99

While the WCS stem is crazy light we're a bit surprised how heavy the matching carbon bar is

BikeRadar score 3.5/5

While the WCS stem is crazy light we're a bit surprised how heavy the matching carbon bar is.

Unlike significantly lighter bars it does come in a usefully control enhancing width though, and it's an impressively stiff unit (if used with other stems). Reinforced ends and grippy centre sections keep it tough too.

The very flat tapered shape gives low hand height, but a pronounced backsweep as it comes off the upsweep gives a distinctive relaxed vibe to the Rizer ride. It's very high priced compared to obvious competitors though.
