The stiff, lightweight Threshold C1 delivers podium-seeking cyclocross speed and will have you wondering how one hour can take so long but hurt so good. It shouldn't come as a surprise that the rugged landscape and abundant precipitation of Canada's Pacific Coast is the ultimate place to develop and perfect a carbon fiber cyclocross bike. It helped us engineer the Threshold C1's mid-modulus carbon frame and fork with ample mud clearance, size-scaled tubing, ovalized seatstays, and bent chainstays to dissipate shock and maximize CX performance. The Threshold C1 features wireless electronic shifting from a SRAM Force AXS 12-speed drivetrain, and Force hydraulic disc brakes, meaning there are no cables to get gummed up with mud after a lap in the sticky mud and snow. A SRAM 900 thru-axle hubset is laced to WTB KOM Light i21 TCS rims that support fast, sturdy Maxxis All-Terrene 33mm knobby tires.
Flying across the country to races some 'cross in the Pacific Northwest? Or are you headed to New England for some East Coast racing? Perhaps you want to give the legendary Belgian mud a try. Now you can travel without the hassle of punishing baggage fees for bikes. The Ritchey Break-Away® Pro Cross is a full size 'cross rig that can be split apart and fit into its own included travel case. Redesigned for 2017 with revised geometry, an integrated head tube and WCS carbon fork, this versatile machine now ships in a classic British racing green and yellow finish. The Break-Away Pro Cross frame is made from Ritchey heat treated, CrMo butted steel tubing, and includes a WCS Carbon Fork and headset. Aside from it's fantastic ride performance, the magic of this bike is in its patented locking compression system, which adds only 100 grams to the weight of the frame. The frame also features bridgeless chainstays for increased tire clearance and rack eyelets. The downtube is split near the bottom bracket and is fastened together with a simple locking ring. A double seatpost clamp up top secures the frame there. This system is strong and completely reliable - you'll never know you're riding a bike that you can split in half and pack in its own bag in less than twenty minutes. Case, padding, cable disconnects, and couplers also included in Frame Kit. - Bottom Bracket: 68mm English threaded - 28.6 front derailleur clamp (Caution: Front derailleur clamp MAX torque of 2.5Nm) - 5.9lbs frame/fork (M) - Case size: 8.5" W x 26.5"H x 31"L w/ wheels - Break-Away travel case and padding included - Ritchey does not guarantee Airlines will not charge - DO NOT grease the downtube coupler on installation - Protected by US Patent No. 6,886,844, EPO Patent 1298046 (validated in various EPO countries), Chinese Patent No. ZL200520113128.5 and Taiwanese Patent No. 192792 & 217716

When it comes to cyclocross, the CruX Expert has everything you need and nothing that you don't. It features the same World-Championship-winning geometry and carbon layup as its S-Works cousin, so ultra-responsive handling and punchy accelerations are covered. You'll also find that these traits are accentuated by the lightweight and extremely stiff FACT 11r carbon fiber construction, while course control is furthered through its one-by design, hydraulic disc brakes, and front/rear thru-axles. Altogether, it's a bike that's guaranteed to take your performance to new heights this season. Beginning with the frame, we implemented our Rider-First Engineered technology that was first introduced on our Tarmacs. Using size-specific tubes and layups, this technology allows the CruX to feature the same ride characteristics across every size in the range. Not only this, but it also allowed us to significantly drop the frame weight, so the CruX now comes in around a scant 900 grams for a 56cm (dependent on frame size and color)—over 400 grams lighter than the previous frameset. A light and stiff frame, alone, isn't useful in a 'cross race if it isn't compliant, however, which is why the new CruX also combines stiffness and compliance in all the right places. And to assist with the latter, we lowered the seat collar by two centimeters for more exposed seatpost and cushion for big hits. We also know that cyclocross races are often won in the corners and over the barriers, which is why the CruX geometry takes this into account. The top tube has been designed for easy shouldering when you're hopping off to clear barriers, as it features a large opening to the front triangle and a flat bottom. For stability in the corners and on off-camber sections, the geometry has a low bottom bracket and a sharp front-end. This combination also helps to initiate corners, regardless of the terrain. With maximum mud-shedding ability in mind, we included eight millimeters of clearance on all sides of a 33mm tire, providing plenty of clearance for muddy conditions. It's awesome to have a light bike, after all, but frame weight becomes irrelevant when it's covered in 10 pounds of mud. It also comes with a reliable SRAM Force 1 hydraulic disc groupset, lightweight and durable Roval C 38 Disc carbon fiber wheelset, and 2Bliss Ready tires that hookup over nasty terrain. - Our FACT 11r carbon frame features a race-ready 'cross geometry and comes equipped with thru-axles, 142mm rear spacing, and it takes advantage of our highest quality carbon production methods in order to create a bike that's as responsive as it is lightweight. - Yep, that's right—carbon wheels on an Expert-level bike. The Roval C38 Disc carbon wheels bring performance to the masses. They're lightweight, durable, and ready for just about anything. - SRAM's Force 1 delivers smooth, crisp shifts, along with plenty of stopping power via their hydraulic disc brakes.

The stiff, lightweight Threshold C2 delivers podium-seeking cyclocross speed and will have you wondering how one hour can take so long, but hurt so good. It shouldn't come as a surprise that the rugged landscape and abundant precipitation of Canada's Pacific Coast is the ultimate place to develop and perfect a carbon fiber cyclocross bike. It helped us engineer the Threshold C2's mid-modulus carbon frame and fork with ample mud clearance, size-scaled tubing, ovalized seatstays, and bent chainstays to dissipate shock and maximize CX performance. The Threshold C2 features a Shimano GRX wide-range 11-speed drivetrain and hydraulic disc brakes. Internally routed cables mean they won't get clogged after a lap in the sticky mud and snow. Sealed bearing thru-axle hubs are laced to WTB KOM Light i21 TCS Tubeless Ready rims, which support fast, sturdy Maxxis All-Terrene 33mm knobby tires.
The frame that started it all—now with a modern twist. Ritchey triple-butted Logic tubing, tuned to cross & gravel racing demands. - Clearance for 40c tires - 12mm thru-axle front and rear - Full carbon noise-damping straight steerer fork - Dropout: Thru-Axle 12mm - Top Tube Length (Effective): 530 - Frame Type: Rigid - Fork Type: Rigid
Many Ritchey-sponsored mountain bike champions were also cyclocross champions—Thomas Frischknecht, Henrik Djernis and Ruthie Matthes, to name a few. And though they were paid to race Ritchey mountain bikes, they often wanted a Ritchey cyclocross bike to race in the winter. This ultimately resulted in another iconic Ritchey model—the Swiss Cross. Now the Swiss Cross is back, and better than ever. We started with the same forged-and-machined integrated head tube design found on the P-29er—80 grams lighter than a standard 1-1/8" head tube and just as strong—a design which also provides much-needed shouldering room at the head tube. Tubing is an all-new triple-butted, heat treated steel designed to Tom's specifications for a classically lightweight, compliant, yet tough-as-nails frame. Geometry has been updated to reflect what 'cross riders want: race-ready handling and responsiveness that's still versatile enough to serve as a capable all-around rough road/trail bike. Tire clearance? Plenty. The Swiss Cross is designed with 'cross racing in mind, after all. But with two bottle cage mounts, the Swiss Cross is perfect for long mixed rides in the off-season. - Painted-to-match Ritchey WCS Cross fork and WCS integrated headset included - Bottom Bracket: 68mm English threaded - Front Derailleur Clamp: 28.6mm (Caution: Front derailleur clamp MAX torque of 2.5Nm) - Headset: WCS integrated drop-in 41.8 (included) - 130mm rear spacing - Weight: 1941g / 4.28lbs (55cm, frame only) - Sold as frameset only
