Description

You’ve sent emails. We’ve seen your social media posts. You have told us at countless events around the world. We’ve heard you loud and clear: You yearn for the return of the legendary P-29er to the Ritchey line-up.

Well, here you go, World!

The P-29er is back.

Tom Ritchey loves riding mountain bikes, and he created the Ritchey P-29er so you could share the same kind of experiences he’s been enjoying on trails for most his life. Designed for ripping tight, twisty, and technical cross-country singletrack, the P-29er is the latest manifestation of Ritchey’s deep heritage of mountain bike history. This sublime frameset represents everything Tom loves about mountain biking – roots, rocks, fun, and endless adventurous experiences deep in the woods.

The frame of the P-29er is built with Ritchey’s proprietary triple-butted Logic steel tubing. That combines with its modern XC geometry to deliver a breathtakingly balanced ride – beautifully mixing a snappy and responsive soul with a comfortable and predictable personality. The P-29er is the ultimate cross-country mountain bike.

With its pedigree firmly rooted in the decades-deep lineage of its P-series predecessors that helped define the sport of mountain biking, this latest version of the P-29er is very much a modern machine with features demanded by today’s XC riders. It boasts BOOST spacing along with stealthy dropper post routing and an ultralight forged tapered headtube. It fits tires up to 2.3” and is built around a 100mm-travel fork. All of this comes together to enshrine the P-29er as a monument to the spirit of endless singletrack adventure.
