Ritchey SuperLogic VentureMax handlebar


Ritchey SuperLogic VentureMax handlebar

The newest VentureMax model is the latest gravel bar by Ritchey to get the SuperLogic treatment, resulting in the SuperLogic VentureMax bar. Superlogic means lighter, more integrated, and faster feeling overall compared to the aluminum VentureMax. Let’s take a look!

Ritchey’s range of handlebars is getting a facelift, starting with the new SuperLogic VentureMax gravel bar. As a key player in the alt-bar movement, Ritchey first introduced the crowd-pleasing VentureMax bar in 2016 and instantly exceeded expectations for a comfortable, stable bar with optimized ergonomics thanks to its shallow drop and purposeful flared Bio-Bend.

The SL VentureMax gravel bar represents an evolution in Ritchey handlebars. WCS carbon components are shifting to SuperLogic, Ritchey’s best carbon fiber composite and construction techniques, which yield some of the most advanced carbon fiber components available.

The SL VentureMax features ergo-aero 38×22.5mm tops for more comfortable hand placement, a wide 24-degree flare at the drops for a more natural arm position, and an updated Bio-Bend that’s gentler for increased practical comfort for all that time you’re in the drops. If you prefer full or partial internal routing, the SL VentureMax is compatible with Shimano’s EW-RS910 junction box.

Another standout feature is its SuperLogic weight, which tips the scale at a lean 235g for 44cm bars.
