Many Ritchey-sponsored mountain bike champions were also cyclocross champions—Thomas Frischknecht, Henrik Djernis and Ruthie Matthes, to name a few. And though they were paid to race Ritchey mountain bikes, they often wanted a Ritchey cyclocross bike to race in the winter. This ultimately resulted in another iconic Ritchey model—the Swiss Cross. Now the Swiss Cross is back, and better than ever. We started with the same forged-and-machined integrated head tube design found on the P-29er—80 grams lighter than a standard 1-1/8" head tube and just as strong—a design which also provides much-needed shouldering room at the head tube. Tubing is an all-new triple-butted, heat treated steel designed to Tom's specifications for a classically lightweight, compliant, yet tough-as-nails frame. Geometry has been updated to reflect what 'cross riders want: race-ready handling and responsiveness that's still versatile enough to serve as a capable all-around rough road/trail bike. Tire clearance? Plenty. The Swiss Cross is designed with 'cross racing in mind, after all. But with two bottle cage mounts, the Swiss Cross is perfect for long mixed rides in the off-season. - Painted-to-match Ritchey WCS Cross fork and WCS integrated headset included - Bottom Bracket: 68mm English threaded - Front Derailleur Clamp: 28.6mm (Caution: Front derailleur clamp MAX torque of 2.5Nm) - Headset: WCS integrated drop-in 41.8 (included) - 130mm rear spacing - Weight: 1941g / 4.28lbs (55cm, frame only) - Sold as frameset only
Possibly the most iconic frame associated with Ritchey, the Swiss Cross draws its name from early factory rider, cyclocross, and mountain bike legend Thomas Frischknecht. The first iteration of the Swiss Cross was a no-holds-barred race machine designed for one thing: ripping through dirt like no other. Captained to numerous victories under Frischi, the Swiss Cross went on to become one of the most revered frames of the Ritchey offering. Twenty-five years later, the Swiss Cross is still a staple of the Ritchey fleet—now featuring modern standards such as 12mm thru-axles, flat-mount brakes, and higher-volume tire clearance. Yet one thing has remained unchanged: it is still a no-holds-barred race-ready dirt ripper. Whether it's leading the charge on bell lap or ticking off the grueling miles of a gravel grinder, the new Swiss Cross is more than capable of tackling it all. - Material: heat-treated, triple-butted Ritchey Logic steel tubing - TIG welded - Ultra-light forged and machined straight 1-1/8" headtube - WCS headset included (IS42/28.6|IS42/30) - 142mm spacing (12mm alloy thru-axle included) - Replaceable stainless-steel derailleur hanger - 27.2mm seat tube with integrated seat collar (max torque setting: 6Nm) - Front derailleur clamp size: 28.6mm (max torque setting: 2.5Nm) - not included - Bottom bracket: 68mm - English threaded - Can accommodate 1X or 2X chainrings - Crankset min/max ring size - single: 36 to 46t / double: 46/30t to 50/34t - External cable routing - Bottle mounts: 2 - Ritchey WCS Carbon Cross Disc Fork included

The Ibis Hakka MX Disc, while technically a cyclocross bike, has always been much more. It’s been ridden on road centuries, on epic dirt rides surrounded by others on mountain bikes, and in local underground races. Some of the best rides involve a bit of road and a bit of dirt. And it’s successfully raced cyclocross—quite a few races at that. With its rainbow-striped pedigree, the Hakkalugi offers superb handling and a perfect fit, thanks in part to its carbon construction, 142x12mm rear spacing, and a tapered steerer. Up front, carbon continues to lead the way with Enve's beautiful and insanely strong thru-axle ’cross fork. There's room for fat tires, too—the frame and fork clear knobby 38mm-wide tires with room to spare for mud. The main highlight of this build is the SRAM Force 1 x 11-speed Rival groupset, which offers better chain management and smooth shifting no matter what the conditions or terrain. The Shimano mechanical disc brakes let you scrub your speed with ease across all weather conditions and through the most precarious courses. Your cross races will never be the same.
