The Shield is Ritchey's great all-around 29er performer. Its low-profile tread gives you good traction and control whether you're acceleration in loose stuff or braking in corners. Speaking of corners, the Shield uses a dual compound tread, so you have a harder rubber in the middle for straight-line speed and longer wear, with softer rubber up on the shoulders for confident leaning. It's also tubeless ready.


Ritchey Vector Force Analysis (VFA) optimizes each tire knob to meet the diverse directional forces encountered while cornering, braking, climbing and descending. The tread pattern (A) follows a parabolic curve for traction at every lean angle. The tread knobs (B) feature different designs to counteract the vector force applied at any given angle, providing confidence-inspiring traction in any condition.
