Ritte Crossberg Frameset

Ritte

Overview

For several years now, we've been working on refining a geometry for the broadest spectrum of riders. We wanted to design a frame is balanced and agile without being extreme in any direction. The Crossberg is a relatively short frame, with 425mm chainstays and a tighter than average front-center. The bottom bracket is low enough to feel balanced but high enough for pedal clearance in most scenarios. We've enlisted the help of professional cross racers of various heights for insight into the best combination of balance and agility through the whole size range.

We also wanted the Crossberg to be a sturdy, knock-down, drag-out race machine that can handle the extreme beating cross racing and trail riding can dish out on a bike. We chose 7005 series aluminum for excellent stiffness to weight, damage resistance and overall value. The Crossberg uses a tapered, 1-1/8" to 1-1/2" head tube for less deflection under heavy braking, PressFit30 bottom bracket shell for adaptability to multiple crank systems and disc brakes for all-weather modulation and stopping power.
