The WCS Vantage wheel is as advanced as it gets, but shares DNA with earlier Ritchey models raced to numerous National and World Cup podiums in the 1990’s. Those decades of winning heritage beautifully coalesce with modern advancements and standards to produce a mountain bike wheel that’s strong, nimble and built to perform and win.
Featuring a new, wider 3mm tall OCR™ (Off Center Rim) profile, BOOST hub widths, and incredibly tough monocoque design, the Vantage is at the front of the pack in terms of weight, stiffness and durability. The OCR build also reduces wheel dish and improves spoke bracing angle for a stronger, laterally stiffer build. The tubeless-ready, 26mm internal-width rim boosts air volume and reduces sidewall flex when riding big tires.
