Based on Ritchey's popular C260 model, the WCS 220 stem is more durable, lighter and easier to install. Its highly advanced design allows the body and face plate enable it to be lighter, yet without affecting the strength or reliability.
The reason for the easier installation or removal is thanks to Ritchey's unique "press-fit" handlebar clamp. This design improves the interface between the stem and handlebar making attaching the bars to your bike simpler and faster. Also, the forward-facing bolts mean fine tune adjustments are a breeze.
Secure and Stable Engagement
In addition to easy installation, the WCS 220's clamp design creates a stable and secure bar engagement. This, in turn, increases bar stiffness for more precise handling, sprinting and climbing. Also, the coated CrMo bolts are positioned in alignment with the clamp plate's face for a more efficient hold and reduced flex.
Ritchey is well known for ingenious mountain bikes and parts, but Tom Ritchey was building world class road frames and rethinking every part of the road bike as early as 1974---long before mountain biking came along. After decades of refinement, Ritchey road components are the lightest, strongest and highest quality parts available, and race proven by top professional teams in the world's toughest pro races. Look for Ritchey components on team bikes in the Tour de France, Giro d'Italia, World Championships and Spring Classics, as well as countless other races.
