Bar ends are extensions which are mounted on the ends of the handlebar <. Many mountainbike and city bike riders prefer straight bar ends but there are also ergonomic shaped bar end designs.
The main advantages of bar ends are the possibility to "pull" on them in uphill sections and the ability to change the hand position during long rides, which results in a more relaxed riding experience.
The only thing to check before buying bar ends is if your handlebar is approved for bar end usage. Many carbon bars for example are not suitable for bar ends.
Very good and light bar ends are made by tune or Ritchey for example.
