The Ritchey Ascent saw a major redesign in 2021, paying homage to its adventurous beginnings some 30 years ago but with modern specs and features that look appealing for bikepacking and all-terrain riding. It features a heat-treated, TIG-welded steel frame, Boost hub spacing, and clearance for 27.5 x 2.6” or 29 x 2.6” tires.
Aside from the new Desert Dust paint job, the latest Ritchey Ascent also received a third bottom mount under the down tube and a new fork with triple pack mounts, dynamo routing, and rack and fender mounts. As Ritchey puts it: “Throw a mountain bike bar on it and some 27.5” wheels for more trail-oriented adventures. Or ride it with drop bars and 29” wheels for some longer-distance rough road riding. However you choose to roll, your riding possibilities are limitless atop the new Ritchey Ascent.”
The Ritchey Ascent comes in four sizes, from small to extra large, and is available as a frameset (frame + fork) for $1,299 USD. Check it out at RitcheyLogic.com.
