Ritte announce the launch of two new steel bikes, the Satyr gravel bike and Phantom all-road bike. Both use Reynolds tubing and were designed by Tom Kellogg, using size-specific tubing – a feature that isn’t particularly common in the stock steel bike category. With disc brakes and other modern spec, they aim to satisfy steel-loving cyclists that want a full-featured and up-to-date machine.
Ritte Satyr gravel bike & Phantom all-road bike
Ritte has been busy this year, and hasn’t slowed down – launching two all-new steel drop bar bikes. Both were designed by UCI World Championship-winning frame builder, Tom Kellogg, and meant to provide a lively steel-is-real ride quality.
First up is the Satyr gravel bike. It uses Reynolds 725 tubing with size-specific specs, for a weight and ride-quality appropriate ride for each size.
A threaded T47 bottom bracket comes standard. Note the third bottle mount underneath the downtube, near the BB shell.
An ENVE gravel fork is spec’ed up front, with different rake depending on frame size.
Tire clearance is quoted at a generous 700 x 43mm.
Six stock sizes are available, with full geometry listed above. Ritte couldn’t share exact frame weight, but quoted “about 2,000 grams” for a Large frame.
Framesets are available for $2,250, or buy a complete bike starting at $3,800. The stock build is a mix of Shimano GRX 1x, along with Hunt 4Season Gravel Disc wheels and an FSA Energy alloy cockpit.
The Phantom is an all-road bike, also built with Reynolds 725 tubing. The overall construction is similar, with 12mm thru axles and flat mount brakes.
Like the Satyr, it uses a threaded T47 bottom bracket shell.
An ENVE road fork rides up front, though the bike advertises less tire clearance than its gravel brethren, at 32mm maximum.
Full geometry is listed above. Similar to the Satyr, the Phantom is quoted at “about 2,000 grams” for a Large size frame. Just like the Satyr, pricing starts at $2,250 for a frameset, or $3,800 for the base build (though the Phantom opts for double-chainring Shimano 105 drivetrain). Both bikes are available to order immediately.
