Ritchey WCS C260 Stem The Ritchey WCS C260 Carbon Matrix stem blends light weight with high strength performance to give you a cockpit that tracks straight and true. The WCS C260 Carbon Matrix adds a carbon exoskeleton that makes the Ritchey WCS C260 Carbon stem the stiffest Ritchey stem gram for gram. The WCS line for Ritchey is the gold standard for performance and the rainbow stripes represent
Ritchey’s numerous World Championships won on Ritchey products. Right off, you notice that the clamp on the Ritchey WCS C260 Carbon Matrix wraps a full 260 degrees around the handlebar to distribute clamping stress more evenly through the handlebar, faceplate, hardware, and stem body. Ritchey can make the WCS C260 Carbon Matrix a bit lighter because the handlebar clamping force is supported more by the stem then by the faceplate. The steerer clamp on the Ritchey WCS C260 Carbon Matrix also receives similar treatment with 3 smaller then normal M4 bolts to reduce clamping force on the steerer tube.
What is more difficult to see is Ritchey’s aim at keeping the WCS C260 Carbon Matrix stem strong and fatigue resistant. The Ritchey WCS C260 Carbon passes CEN certification (one of the industries most rigorous standards for safety in the bicycle industry). The Ritchey WCS C260 Carbon Matrix is built using 7050 aluminum that is 3d forged and internally machined to reduce weight and then wrapped with a carbon exoskeleton making it 14% stiffer the the alloy WCS C260 stem! Premium chromoly bolts are used throughout in a smaller M4 size to save weight without compromising strength.
Due to the 260 degree handlebar clamp, the WCS C260 Carbon Matrix will not fit handlebars with aero section flat tops.
