Helping to spread your wings, the new Ritchey Comp Buzzard Bar is made for your next adventure. The new Buzzard Bar takes the adventurous spirit of the Ritchey Comp Kyote Bar and takes it up a few notches. The Buzzard is designed for true all-day, off-road touring and bikepacking.

Let’s check out some of the comfortable and practical features of the Buzzard.

Right out of the gate the Buzzard rises above similar adventure bars with a 70mm flat rise. This leads to a more upright, and comfy riding position, perfect for touring or bikepacking. The 70mm rise would be especially helpful on bikes with lower stack height.

The modest reach of the Buzzard along with the rise means that there will be minimal pressure on the wrists, allowing the rider to settle back in a less aggressive, more sustainable riding position.

Complementing the Buzzard Bar’s comfort are the practical features that are built into the bar’s geometry. First, the bar’s ample width of 820mm ensures plenty of control, when the ride gets rough. Second, pair that with the aforementioned rise, and you get a better line of sight to help see what’s next.

Third, the Buzzard Bar’s wide center section allows the attachment of all kinds of bags and accessories for those lengthy adventures. And finally, top all of that goodness with a low price, and you get a bar that is attainable and ready for whatever you throw at it.

The Buzzard Bar’s Purpose

The true calling of the Buzzard is to seek rides that float over woodland, deserts, mountains, or anywhere you want to escape to with ease and grace – be it joyfully meandering endless trails all day or tackling that 1000-kilometer bikepacking event you’ve been contemplating“.

The Buzzard isn’t a bar for wannabees – it’s a bar for where-do-you-wannabe?”

These may not be the most popular style, but I can see them having their place.
