SAN CARLOS, Calif. - Ritchey Design, Inc., a leading developer and manufacturer of high-quality road and mountain bike components, today announced its new World Championship Series (WCS) Alloy and Carbon Curve Bars are available to consumers through independent bicycle dealers nation-wide.

Sporting a compact drop of only 128 millimeters, the WCS Curve Bars let riders set up for aggressive positioning in both the drops and tops. The WCS Curve Bars are the newest product in a long line of Ritchey Fit Logic Philosophy-centered products designed to fit the unique and individual dimensions and needs of a rider. Other features include sanded stem and brake level mount sections for improved grip and, like most of Ritchey handlebars, are compatible with triathlon clip-on bars.

Enthusiasts will see the WCS Curve Bars in action throughout the race season (see past press release here) as Ritchey-sponsored United Healthcare Men's Pro Cycling Team presented by Maxxis will be riding a combination of Ritchey Classic, Curve, Logic II and the soon to-be-released Evolution Curve Bars.
