Product Information:

Often times you can quickly determine a product is a fake because it is visibly different in design, graphics or finish than anything shown on the www.Ritcheylogic.com website.

However, counterfeiters are getting better at copying Ritchey products and visual inspection may not be effective in some cases. When in doubt, you can contact Ritchey directly and for help. If you purchase only from Authorized Ritchey Dealers, you can rest assured that the product you're purchasing is genuine.

Genuine Ritchey products are manufactured to a very high quality standard. It would not be possible to make a product of similar quality and sell it as cheaply as what's commonly seen from counterfeit sources.

Ritchey has acquired counterfeit products and subjected them to industry standard testing as well as their own internal testing. Ritchey found that counterfeit products are significantly lacking in the strength and durability that are required on authentic Ritchey products to ensure rider safety.

The vast majority of counterfeit Ritchey products originate from China. Ritchey does not manufacture any of the typically counterfeited products seen (handlebars, stems or seat posts) in China.

Many of the products shown below are fake -- they never existed in the Ritchey product line, but display the trademarked Ritchey branding to deceive consumers. Always buy from authorized Ritchey retailers.
