Tom Ritchey and Dustin Klein of Cadence have done a number of collaborations together, from limited edition stems to completely one-off hand painted mountain bike bars. This time they come together for a limited edition C220 Stem and Evocurve handlebar set, with more standard options than they’ve done before. And to add a little backstory they’ve put together a short video talking about how their polar opposite left and right brain approaches to cycling components make them ideal partners in developing products to make cyclists happy.

The right/left collaboration gives us the new Cadence x Ritchey Keta bar and stem, with a textile-inspired graphic treatment by Klein on the all-around performers from Ritchey. Both Ritchey WCS components start off with a standard Wet White finish and then get the black and white Cadence Keta design treatment with its Keep Going mantra.
The C220 stem is the popular 1 1/18″ 84/6° WCS standard from Ritchey (that we reviewed this past winter) and is available for $120 in 90-130mm lengths in this special edition.
The matching bar is Ritchey’s short, shallow, smooth bend Alloy Evocurve available in 40, 42 & 44cm widths for $150.
There is even an option to buy both with bar tape from Cadence for just $200 total, making it a pretty affordable setup for the limited edition components. Both individual components and the bundle are up on Cadence’s website, so feel free to go buy something pretty before they are gone.
