New ‘Wet White’ road kit from Ritchey

Matching bar, stem and seatpost

Ritchey have released a new line of ‘Wet White’ road components – and unlike white bar tape and saddles (which they also sell), these are likely to still look good several months down the line.



The WCS post comes with 20mm of layback and features Ritchey’s SideBinder single-bolt clamping technology. Different clamps are available for various size rails. Claimed weight is 235g for the 27.2 x 300mm version. RRP is £81.99 (US$109.95/€93.90).


The WCS 4Axis stem is 3D-Net forged from 2014 aluminium and weighs in at just 132g (110/31.8mm). It has a forged and contoured four-bolt faceplate, and an angled steerer clamp with opposing bolts, both of which are designed to evenly distribute clamping forces. It’s available in 90, 110, 120, 130 and 140mm lengths. RRP is £77.99 ($109.95/€89.90).

Drop bar

The anatomical-bend WCS Logic II bar is made of triple-butted alloy and is available in three widths, 40, 42 and 44cm, with an oversize (31.8mm) clamp section. Claimed weight is 235g for the 42cm version. RRP is £77.99 ($119.95/€93.90). Also available is white bar tape at €9.90 (UK and US prices TBC).
