The Ritchey Outback V2 is a Toast to Adventure

The all-new Ritchey Outback is a toast to an unquenchable thirst for finding out what’s just beyond that pass: to the feeling of knowing exactly where you are despite having never seen this land before. A toast to the riddle that drives us toward the beyond: what’s next.

Tom Ritchey rides about 10,000 miles (16,000 km) per year, and most of that is off-road. Combine that with his more than 40 years of designing and building bicycles, and it’s no wonder the Outback has become an icon in the gritty world of gravel and adventure bikes.

Updated for 2020, the new Ritchey Outback now sports several practical and adaptable features that offer riders the ability to chase epic ride experiences beyond the end of the road and the end of the day. Rack and fender mounts help to keep things dry and expand the load-carrying capacity for longer bikepacking adventures, while clearance for 700c x 48mm or 650b x 2.0in tires opens up a whole new world of possibilities.

The frame accepts flat-mount disc calipers, and the new all-carbon fiber Ritchey Adventure Fork with multi-purpose mounts on the legs gives you more places to stow the supplies you gather at the last cafe. Painstakingly TIG-welded with proprietary triple-butted Ritchey Logic steel tubing, the Outback frame delivers the legendary Ritchey ride quality that’s resilient over the harshest terrain and delightfully responsive when you want to open it up. Road, off-road, trail, expedition, you name it…the new Ritchey Outback is designed to do it all.
