Ritte’s New 2015 Crossberg Oct 30, 2014


For 2015, Ritte is doing something a little different with their Crossberg this year with a revamped geometry and yes, disc brakes. All wrapped up in a very Ritte paint job, ready to rip.

Check out more specs and photos below and see more at Ritte.


“For several years now, we’ve been working on refining a geometry for the broadest spectrum of riders. We wanted to design a frame is balanced and agile without being extreme in any direction. The Crossberg is a relatively short frame, with 425mm chainstays and a tighter than average front-center. The bottom bracket is low enough to feel balanced but high enough for pedal clearance in most scenarios. We’ve enlisted the help of professional cross racers of various heights for insight into the best combination of balance and agility through the whole size range.”


“We also wanted the Crossberg to be a sturdy, knock-down, drag-out race machine that can handle the extreme beating cross racing and trail riding can dish out on a bike. We chose 7005 series aluminum for excellent stiffness to weight, damage resistance and overall value. The Crossberg uses a tapered, 1-1/4” to 1-1/2” head tube for less deflection under heavy braking, PressFit30 bottom bracket shell for adaptability to multiple crank systems and disc brakes for all-weather modulation and stopping power.”


Frame: 7005 Series Aluminum, disc only, 135mm rear axle spacing.
Fork: Ritte Full Carbon Disc for use with 160mm rotor
Head Tube: Tapered 1 -1/4” top – 1 -1/2” bottom (Headset included.)
Bottom Bracket: Press Fit 30
Routing: External. For mechanical shifting and mechanical or hydraulic disc brakes.
Brake Rotors: 160mm front / 140mm or 160mm rear Seat Post: 27.2mm

    Still love my ’13 Crossberg. Outside of the drop from carbon to aluminum, I like the changes to the newer aluminum frames. I would prefer a lower BB, but that’s a personal preference.

    65mm BB drop and 425mm CS seem pretty normal…..what did they used to be?

    (and a HT angle that’s 1 to 1.5deg less than ST)
