Tom Ritchey welded his first bicycle in his parents' garage more than 50 years ago, when he was just 15 years old. Since then, he has continued to ride, research, design and build legendary frames and components that have inspired generations of cyclists to experience great rides, influenced legions of people in the cycling industry and won countless championships.
Perhaps the most iconic frame associated with Ritchey, the Swiss Cross is named after the factory's first rider, cyclocross and mountain bike legend Thomas Frischknecht. The first iteration of the Swiss Cross, in 1994, was a no-holds-barred racing machine, designed for one thing only: to hurtle across the dirt like no other. Spearheaded by numerous victories under Frischi's leadership, the Swiss Cross has become one of the most popular frames in the Ritchey offering, proving to be a winning combination of Tom's mastery of frame building and Frischi's dominance in racing.
To honour Ritchey's 50th anniversary, we are thrilled to present this special 50th anniversary edition of the Swiss Cross. Coated in the iconic Ritchey Red paint, this limited edition Swiss Cross is also adorned with Ritchey logos that reference the company's history and the influence Palo Alto, California had on Tom.
