The Ritchey Outback is returning this week with an eye-catching “Sunset Fade” colorway. Find more details and additional photos here, plus a link to our review of the updated Outback in case you missed it…

The Ritchey Outback drummed up quite a lot of buzz when it was relaunched last year with smart updates that included additional mounts, revised geometry, and clearance for 650B x 2.0” tires. Miles spent some time riding one around Vancouver Island for his review (check that out here), and concluded that it’s one of the most impressive drop-bar bikes he’s ridden to date.

Last year’s Outback was launched in a green and white “Guac y Crema Green” colorway, which has long since sold out in most sizes (and it’s unclear if it’ll be restocked and offered alongside this new version). This morning, Ritchey announced the Outback’s new color scheme, a beautiful and eye-catching “Sunset Fade” that was originally introduced into the Ritchey lineup as part of the Heritage Paint program in 2016 and became a fan favorite. From what we can tell, nothing has changed beyond the paint (and the price), so we’ll keep this one short and sweet.
