The WCS (World Championship Series) line is the gold standard for lightweight, bombproof race parts and cutting edge innovation. The rainbow stripe WCS logo represents the numerous world champions that have won on Ritchey. Ritchey’s revolutionary, patented 260-degree stem clamp design brings a new level of stiffness, trength and weight savings to 3D forged alloy stem. The 260 degree clamp distributes clamping stress more evenly through the stem body, faceplate, hardware and handlebar.

This stem is as good as it gets as far as a lightness/stiffness combo goes. Hitting large potholes does not make it flex one bit and the carbon shine is kinda sexy when the light hits it.

I have bought this stem because it's very light and the price is unbeatable. Just take care everyone, due to small front opening it cannot fot all handlebars. Ask CRC for details first.

has been looking for a stem thats nice and light and strong. has tried thompson x4, it's tought but a little bit rough on my delicate MTB. so this c260 will be the one. nice finish, but the paint inside will be peeled off once you install the stem.
