The Phantom


Elegant, silky, potent - the most desirable of human characteristics, now distilled into a machine. Welcome to our most capable road bike, your most capable road bike.

The Phantom is our new All-Road bike. It’s got race pedigree in a package built out of custom specified Reynolds 725 tubing and designed by UCI World Championship winning frame builder Tom Kellogg. Aggressive does not need to mean harsh - we wanted a bike that smooths out the road in a way that only a silken Phantom could without losing the tenacity of a true road machine. This unique combination of geometry, tubing, and clearance for 32c tires ensure this is the first bike you reach for on any adventure.

Further outfitted with a T47 bottom bracket shell that allows room for entirely internal cable routing, flat mount disc brakes, and 12mm thru axles the Phantom accelerates and brakes with a potency admired by any racer. We dressed this two wheeled apparition in a paint scheme befitting of it’s elegance, so as not to overly intimidate any of its stablemates.

For the first time, the new Ritte Phantom is available as a complete bike or a frameset. We’ve got three stock build packages to choose from - with your choice of gearing and cockpit sizes. Available to be configured immediately in the bicycle builder on Ritte.cc.

But don’t think you cant put your own spin on things - we know that any rider exuding enough class to own one of these Phantoms is going to be a person of great brilliance and creativity. For that reason, we are proud to offer completely custom builds and paintwork. Our wrenches and paint booth are ready to create to your specifications.

The only thing these bikes can’t do, yet, is ride themselves. We’ll leave the Fun and Glory to you.

 

Shipping the second week of January.

    Beautiful and amazing

    Bought this bike to replace my 20 year old Ti Eddy Merck. Living in northeastern VT, I wanted something as an alternative to my gravel bike, that could handle the broken pavement and gravel roads here. I needed clearance for 32 mm tires, hydro disc brakes, and a quality steel frame. I got all that and more! This bike rides like a dream. Amazing road feel, good power transfer, and corners and descends like a demon! The attention to detail and build quality are real attention grabbers, too. Ritte customer service is outstanding. After my frame was damaged in shipping, Elijah handled it with the utmost professionalism and satisfaction. He even threw in some stainless steel cages and Ritte bottles before shipping back to me. It is clear their focus is providing the best experience and product possible for the customer. FYI, I'm 5'8", 30" inseam, and the size small Phantom frame fits perfectly.

    How did they do that? Uhhh, they tell you right in the description, Tom Kellogg + Reynolds 735! The Phantom is a joy in every condition I've thrown at it in my first 12 months / 7,000miles of ownership; from 60mph descents to ripping through twisty suburban neighborhood streets, and 150 mile single day asphalt/gravel/single track adventures on my second set of rims with 32mm gravel tires. Aesthetically the Phantom is the perfect combo of classic steel (small diameter tubes) and clean factory paint scheme mated with modern day tech of beautiful tapered head tube, slick internal routing, and solid never squeak T47 bottom bracket. Throw a set of Enve SES 45AR's and Sram AXS groupset on it and you've got all the aero you need (yes, it does deserve a premium build). Buy this bike and ride the sh!t out of it!!!

    take it everywhere

    This bike. Fast on the road, comfy on chipseal, holds confidence on sketchy gravel descents, I'm not sure there's much more you could ask of a single bike. The Phantom has given me so much joy this year. Not to mention the amazing Ritte crew who were awesome helping with the build, and went above and beyond to make sure all the details were right.
