ASCENT, a masterpiece of the bike brand Ritchey at the time, which was created by Tom Ritchey, who led the movement in the early days of mountain biking, has been updated to a new model with boost standards, additional eyelets, and a mount that can mount a dynamo light. it was done.
At the beginning of the announcement, the classic ASCENT, which has changed its style as a mountain bike and sometimes touring bikes depending on the times, is back in the lineup, and the latest ASCENT is more suitable for adventure, above all, off-road touring rides. I was reborn.
ASCENT is one of Ritchie's proud triple butted logic steel assembled by Tig welding. In the latest model, in addition to the general bottle mount and fender mount, a bottle cage standard mount under the down tube and fork, and a mount for dynamo light are added.
In addition, the fork and rear end have been changed to boost standards (110mm front, 148mm rear) to improve rigidity (15mm through axle at the front and 12mm through axle at the rear), and the 29-inch / 27.5-inch wheels are 2.6-inch wide. Clearance corresponding to the tires is secured, and it is more specialized for off-road driving performance.
The geometry has been followed since its predecessor, and it has a versatile design that can be used with either a drop bar or a flat bar. You can customize your bike to suit your rider's style. Compared to the gravel bike OUTBACK, which sits between the road and MTB, this new ASCENT is a better off-road bike.
The front chainring can also be operated as either double or single.
