The new Ultra welcomes a fresh generation of riders looking for a modern, versatile steel hardtail that caters to those of us that like to get rowdy, go big and rip into no-holds-barred shredding.

Stealthy internal dropper post routing.

In 2019, nearly 6.3 billion gallons (23.8 billion liters) of beer was sold in the United States!

Versatility! Clearance for 27.5”x2.8” or 29”x2.4” tires.

Red, white and blue Team Edition paint honors everyone who has raced to championships with Ritchey.


"It's an XC bike that delivers a whole lot more." - Bicycling

"Slim tubes, elegant lines, and a classic aesthetic – the Ritchey Ultra looks like a winner." - Cycling Tips


When Tom first designed the Ultra he knew it would appeal to riders who demand specific ride characteristics and dirt-slaying only he could deliver – and that was in the 1980s! Good design withstands the test of time, and the latest iteration of the Ultra is a prime example. Like its predecessor from 30 years prior, the new Ultra occupies a unique ride space from cross-country riders looking to get rowdy and go big to enduro riders lusting for some all-mountain shredding.

In homage to all of the great racers to have won upon Ritchey bicycles over the years, we introduce the Ultra Team Edition. Wrapped in the legendary red, white and blue paint, the Ultra Team Edition draws inspiration from these past winners while inspiring legions of modern mountain bikers around the world. Designed around a 120mm travel fork and super stable Boost 148 spacing, most of the fun is in the wheels. Designed to accommodate 29” or 27.5” wheels, the Ultra is highly versatile. Throw on some 29s for some trail-smashing XC riding, or saddle up some 27.5+ for some serious no-holds-barred shredding. The Ultra is a rough and rugged trail master that doesn’t know when to quit.
