The Ritchey Comp Carbon Road Fork 1″ was designed for how you love to ride. Built with High Modulus Fiber (HMF), this choice road fork offers superior strength. It’s strong without sacrificing a pleasurable road feel. Smooth internal fiber flow in the crown/steerer area delivers the best force transfer from crown to shaft and increased impact strength.
The orientation of the fibers have been optimized to absorb and dissipate loads, which delivers a confident and comfortable ride. The fork also uses various fiber types based on their specific properties to manage different load types as best as possible in the areas in which they occur – such as side load, torsion and impact. The item includes a compression plug.

Tom Ritchey is one-of-a-kind. He continues to juggle his duties as president and lead designer of our company, now distributed in over 40 countries, while still logging 10,000 miles a year all over the world. It all comes naturally to a guy who taught himself to build frames as a teenager, and who designed some of the burgeoning mountain bike industry’s first frames and components back in the 1970’s. Every year Tom guides Ritchey’s R&D efforts in pursuit of both subtle improvements to existing products, or large-scale advances leading to new ones.
