While the industry pushes for stiffer and more harsh riding bikes, Ritchey focuses on the ride quality of the bike. Ritchey recognizes where bikes need to be stiff, and where they need to comply to the ride when the terrain may get more rigorous. For more than 40 years, riders have known to look to Ritchey bike forks for a truly sublime ride experience.
Most bikes are designed around the fork that controls them. Ritchey adventure bikes are no different - based around a straight steerer, or late taper, Ritchey adventure forks offer the right amount of compliance over harsh terrain while ensuring enough stiffness when needed to power past a grueling climb. Ritchey forks are available in various options to suit most builds: from 1-1/8" straight steerer disc QR to thru-axle disc tapered forks to tapered, rigid MTB forks for the right hardtail.
Precision, performance, comfort and reliability are the hallmarks of Ritchey road bike forks. The result of decades of experience, innovation and hundreds of thousands of miles of riding, Ritchey carbon fiber forks offer riders an unmatched ride experience—the logical choice for reaching the podium or for confidently enjoying all-day rides on the open road. Ritchey road forks are the perfect compliment for your bike as an upgrade or stock on a Ritchey frameset.
