    • Ritchey Venturemax Classic Gravel Bike Handlebar

  • Ritchey Venturemax Classic Gravel Bike Handlebar

    Ready for day-long gravel bike adventures, this drop handlebar features a double-butted 6061 alloy construction that makes it durable on the most demanding of mixed terrain conditions. Whether you're exploring countryside back roads or spending the weekend bikepacking, this versatile model is well-equipped with a round top section and comfortable geometry that's specifically engineered for tackling the demands of gravel riding.

    Tom Ritchey has been riding off-road and riding far – and designing products for such adventures - decades before anyone thought to call it “gravel riding” or “bikepacking.” His real-life experiences directly inform every product made by Ritchey – such as the beloved VentureMax handlebar. With its short reach, shallow drop and purposeful flare, the original VentureMax offers comfort and confidence to legions of riders looking to settle in and have some fun on those dirty drop bar adventures.

    Comfortable with High Polish Finish

    Like the original, the Classic VentureMax is influenced by those life experiences, but some adds updated features – continuing to inspire riders to chase gravel and other mixed-surface adventures. Adding a touch of stylish sophistication with its high-polish silver finish, the Classic VentureMax features aero-shaped 38x22.5mm ergonomic tops for a more comfortable hand position, while drilling for a Shimano EW-RS910 junction box expands the adaptability of the WCS VentureMax.

    Gravel Bike Drop Bar with Bio-Bend Design

    Multiple hand positions are key for comfort and confidence on any ride, and the Classic VentureMax offers plenty of options there – especially with its wide 24-degree flare at the drops. But it’s the return of the Bio-bend in the drop that adds yet another design element that is practical and comfortable for whatever surface you choose to ride upon and for however long your adventure endures.
