Don’t get us wrong, we’re all for racing. Grand Tour top steps, Classic’s Monuments—they’re in our DNA. But sometimes riding simply to ride, riding for the love of riding, is just what we need. And this is what the Aethos lives for. Sure, it’s given nothing up to performance, and happens to be the lightest frame out there, but with no compromise to style. Aethos: Billions of calculations in the pursuit of one thing—the perfect ride. - The Aethos frame has been designed with the perfect combination of ultimate ride feel, light weight, and style—from accelerating up steep pitches and descending technical descents, to all-day saddle comfort on even the longest coffee rides, the Aethos hits the mark. But how, you ask? By reinventing the traditional road shape found on bikes of the past, we’ve subtly altered these shapes to deliver massive gains in stiffness and balance, all without affecting weight or durability. Pair that with an entirely-new layup and process that we’ve perfected over multiple decades and you have the lightest frame out there (585 grams, S-Works, size 56cm). The Aethos is more than just a new bike, it’s the first of a new breed. - A featherweight frame is useless without confidence-inspiring ride characteristics, which is why we’ve developed the Aethos to have the perfect balance of front and rear stiffness combined with exceptional ride quality. By studying the flexing and breathing of carbon fiber, we were able to discover groundbreaking findings about how forces flow through frames. Just a few pedal strokes and you’ll realize this sublime ride sets a new standard. - Every detail, from the derailleur hangers to the fork expander plug have been designed with style, weight, and durability in mind—everything in pursuit for the perfect ride.

For years, time trial bikes have had very similar attributes—skinny, deep airfoils, sketchy handling, subpar braking, and heavy frames. For the "flat and fast" courses of yesteryear, these qualities may have been acceptable, but with today's technically demanding courses, TT bikes needed a change. And with this in mind, we've pushed UCI regulations to their limits adding disc brakes, dropping weight, and dialing in the fit for the new Shiv TT. Is it the most adjustable TT bike out there? Yeah, but don't think it gave anything up to aerodynamics. Here's to another decade of gold medals. We've paired this wind-cheating steed with SRAM's new RED eTAP AXS 1x drivetrain, maximizing every potential gain you could ask for. And yes, we're giving you both the fastest and lightest disc wheel on the market, as well as the fastest wheels we've ever tested—Roval 321 Disc and CLX 64s. - As time-trial courses have become more technical and demanding, it's important to capitalize on years of R&D and pro rider feedback to create the fastest time trial bike—for all courses. From technical inner-city prologues, to rolling courses with steep grades, it's not just about making the fastest bike for a straight line. With this in mind we've cut the weight and greatly increased the handling characteristics of the Shiv TT with an all-new silhouette. - Fit was also one of the biggest design pillars of the new Shiv TT. With years of Retul data, and professional rider data, we've completely re-done the geometry and front-end of the bike. The updated spacers, bridge, and armrests lock in fit, improving stability and confidence, while the one-piece bar and stem simplifies and lightens the weight of the front-end, balancing the overall feel. - Disc brakes are now a necessity in TTs with variable weather, tight corners, and rough surfaces. Not only do they let you late-brake into corners and shift on the bars, but they also create a more stable chassis in corners and when accelerating. And don't worry, they don't lend themselves to any additional drag.
The patented Ritchey Break-Away design has been heralded by mainstream cycling media as one of the most innovative bikes on the market today. This incredible blend of travel convenience and no-compromise performance is now available in a lightweight, stiff yet silky smooth full-carbon version. Carbon fiber bikes for travel? Yes. Ritchey has offered the Titanium Carbon Break-Away (with a full-carbon rear triangle and fork) for years with no issues. Our carbon fiber designs are very strong—the force required to damage your Carbon Break-Away while packed in its case would have also damaged any frame of any material. The carbon tubes designed from the ground, up with optimal stiffness, ride quality and durability in mind. Tom Ritchey's "Right-Sized" carbon tubing specification balances stiffness and compliance for a sublime ride quality, and this travel-ready bike enjoys classic Ritchey geometry. A Ritchey WCS Carbon road fork is included with this frameset, and the bike features room for larger road tires (up to 700x28c, depending on make and model) The Break-Away kit here includes a Ritchey Break-Away travel case and with padding, and a Ritchey 4Nm Break-Away torque key - Headset: WCS Integrated Drop-In 41.8 (included) - Front Derailleur: Braze-on - Bottom Bracket: 68mm English threaded - Weight: 1810g – (frame, fork, coupler – size L) - Sold as frameset only
Avoid the extra baggage fees, but still fully experience adventures by bike when you travel. The Ritchey Break-Away road frame is a full-size bike that can be split apart to fit into its own special travel case that's basically the same size as a normal checked bag at the airport. The Break-Away Road frame is made from Ritchey heat treated, CrMo butted steel tubing, and includes a Pro Carbon Fork and headset. Aside from it's fantastic ride performance, the magic of this bike is in its patented locking compression system, which adds only 100 grams to the weight of the bike. The downtube is split near the bottom bracket and is fastened together with a simple locking ring. A double seatpost clamp up top secures the frame there. This system is strong and completely reliable - you'll never know you're riding a bike that you can split in half and pack in its own bag in less than twenty minutes. Case, padding, cable disconnects, and couplers also included in Frame Kit. - Bottom Bracket: 68mm English threaded - 28.6 front derailleur clamp (Caution: Front derailleur clamp MAX torque of 2.5Nm) - 5.2lbs frame/fork (56cm) - Case size: 8.5" W x 26.5"H x 31"L w/ wheels - Break-Away travel case and padding included - Ritchey does not guarantee Airlines will not charge - DO NOT grease the downtube coupler on installation - Protected by US Patent No. 6,886,844, EPO Patent 1298046 (validated in various EPO countries), Chinese Patent No. ZL200520113128.5 and Taiwanese Patent No. 192792 & 217716
