POC + Ritte
POC-Ritte-book

SoCal-based, bad boyz / bad girlz of cycling, Ritte have teamed up with POC, one of the most unique cycling helmet and apparel companies to form a whole line of collaborative products. Coming soon are POC + Ritte gloves, bibs, jersey and yes, a scarf. The whole collection looks great and I can’t wait to see photos of the team wearing this line.

See more at POC and check your local dealer for availability. This release is slated for mid-April.

Ritte Has a New Website

The overlords at Ritte have done a little winter shaving and launched a new website. I just spent a few minutes scrolling sideways and I’m sure you will once you head over!

Gareth’s Ritte Blue Ribbon SSCX Belt Drive
Beautiful Bicycle: Gareth's Ritte SSCX Belt Drive

Single speed cross in SoCal is big, with 30-40 racers in the A field each weekend. A lot of the elite-class racers have found a new love for the single speed A’s, which is where Gareth races his US-built Ritte Blue Ribbon Steel CX belt drive. Belt drive cross bikes are still in their infancy, but this one looked great getting in the SoCal mud (yes, mud exists in SoCal). Before the race, I gave this beauty some lens love…

Rittaayyyyy’s New SSCX Bike
BensCX-1024x682

This is about as balleur as a single speed cross bike gets. The new Ritte Racing team rider Ben Jacques-Maynes is tearing apart SoCal’s cross races on this beast. Equipped with the 2012 TRP Parabox Hydraulic disk brakes, it’s good to go.

Ritte, we wanna see more ASAP! Maybe I’ll track down Ben at the SSCXWC in LA next week to shoot some photos.

2013 Ritte Women’s Cycle Team Sponsor Book

For 2013 Ritte is bringing something different to their line and it’s not a new bike. Their women’s team was getting tired of winning every weekend so they figured they’d make it official. Check out the 2013 Ritte women’s cycle team sponsor book above.

Ritte Racing: Steel SSCX
SteelCXRitte

Yummy! This morning, while trying to knock back a few cold ones (that’s code for emails), I popped onto Facebook to see these three belt-drive beauties staring me down. I like Steel and I like cross bikes. Ritte’s ok too, I guess. Kidding aside, head to the Ritte FB to catch the entire set.

Ritte Racing: 2013 Crossberg
Ritteeeeeey

Road season isn’t even over yet and already people are juiced about cross season. Adding to the squeeze is the new Ritte Racing 2013 Crossberg. I can’t even begin to compete with their copy, so I’ll leave the linguistics to them: “Stiffer, smoother, svelter and more aggressive than last year’s edition…”

See more at Ritte Racing.
