The ergonomic evolution of Ritchey handlebars continues with the ground-breaking WCS Beacon. The most notable feaure is it's super-wide 36 degree drop flare. Aside from the unmatched ergonomic comfort and stability afforded by this wide flare, it also allows for plenty of space for handlebar packs.

When riding in the drops, the Beacon doubles down on comfort with a very shallow 80mm drop and a shofter than usual reach. The Evo-style top section offers broad support for your hands, and it has a gentle backward sweep for a more natural hand position when riding the tops.

The unconventional aesthetic of the WCS Beacon belies it's comfort and practicality. Taking inspiration from the randonneur world, the Beacon allows an easy transition of the hands around the bar without upsetting bike handling when loaded with gear. The gentle change of hand position allows the body to stretch and move while keeping the bike stable.

Ideal for adventure touring and bikepacking, on asphalt or gravel trails - or even for urban riding - the unique WCS Beacon brings a whole new level of comfort and control.

Can I use this with the Co-Motion Rohloff shifter?
11 Mar 2022

I have a bike with a Rohloff Co-Motion shifter and would like to change the bars. Do you think the Co-Motion shifter will fit round these bars to near the stem position?

Many thanks
