Possibly the most iconic bicycle frame associated with Ritchey, the Swiss Cross draws its name from Swiss professional rider, cyclocross and mountain bike legend, Thomas Frischknecht. The first iteration of the Swiss Cross was a no-holds-barred race machine designed for one thing: ripping through dirt like no other. Captained to numerous victories under Frischi, the Swiss Cross went on to become one of the most revered frames of the Ritchey offering.

Twenty-five years later, the Swiss Cross is still a staple of the Ritchey fleet – now featuring modern standards such as 12mm thru-axles, flat-mount brakes, and higher-volume tire clearance. Yet one thing has remained unchanged: it is still a no-holds-barred race-ready gravel, road and single track. Whether it’s leading the charge on bell lap or ticking off the grueling miles of a gravel grinder, the new Swiss Cross is more than capable of tackling it all.

This bicycle is built with a Shimano GRX mechanical disc brake 11 speed 2 x 11 groupset.
