I like the looks and body language of this bike. The Ritte Ace is taking over the road racing lineup, utilizing true one-piece monocoque construction, positive molding with a T700/T1000 Carbon Layup and integrated Di2 or mechanical cabling setups. Because bigger is better, the Ace will also fit 25mm – 28mm tires, depending on rim width and manufacturer’s specs.
Not everything is new with the Ace, however. Ritte adopted the geometry from their Vlaanderen model for familiar handling. See more specs and photos below.
Here’s all the info from Ritte:

True Monocoque – Unlike most framesets, which are made in three or more separately molded pieces, the Ace is made as one main structure, with no hard joints or seams.
Positive Molding – The Ace utilizes the most up-to-date molding process with an hard inner mold and bladder system, resulting in higher carbon compaction and more uniform wall density.
Interchangeable Di2/Mechanical – Now Di2 and mechanical cabling is cleaner-looking and easier to route with specially de- signed inserts.
25+ Tire Clearance – The Ace can accept the biggest possible tires that a standard brake caliper can clear. Every brand’s 25s and many 28s can fit.
T700/T1000 Carbon Layup – the highest possible grade of car- bon that can be practically used on a road frame.
Grounded Geometry – The Ace uses the same well-tested, much-loved geometry from the Vlaanderen for confident, precise handling and stable descending.
