Ritchey designed the Ritchey WCS Trail stem to complement today's 5-6" travel trail bikes. The Ritchey WCS Trail stem is more than just a beefed up Ritchey stem though. The patented C260 clamp has been revised to a 220 degree version that fits a wider variety of riser bar bends. Even with the revision, the WCS Trail stem still offers a dramatic increase in stiffness and strength over competitor designs.
Ritchey uses a 3D forged 2014 alloy for a balance between light weight and strength and the 220 degree clamp opening spreads the clamping force over a larger area. The Ritchey WCS Trail is available in 60-110mm lengths and weighs in at 115g (70mm).
I needed a stem that was a bit longer and gave this one a try. After a few rides, it feels like it will be pretty solid and hold up well. It's pretty light for an alloy stem and it feels like it clamps onto the steer tube and bars really well. I would recommend this for someone looking for a good straight stem.
Bought this stem to replace an older Ritchey WCS stem in 25.6 MM clamp diameter when I broke the bar that was in the old stem. This stem seems just as light as the old stem and seems to be stronger by design. And it looks great too!
