Ritchey Break-Away Carbon Road Frameset

Ritchey Break-Away Carbon Road Frameset
This item is currently not available.


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 are 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 padding, and a Ritchey 4Nm Break-Away torque key.
