With its drop and reach of 126 mm and 78 mm respectively, this handlebar is designed with ergonomics in mind for both the drop and the hood position. The evolvent curve of the side parts lets you find an aerodynamic but not too deep position on your bike.
When riding on the hoods the nearly horizontal forward part of the drop makes for an unbroken line with the hoods. The obvious advantage of the oversized handlebar is its middle section’s larger diameter. This results in a considerably stiffer handlebar. In addition to that, its wide and flat top makes for an ergonomic and comfortable grip when riding with your hands on the tops.
The flat section design is also more aerodynamic than the round-section version with its larger frontal area. In addition, the handlebar
comes with recessed cable grooves on its underside following the proven design of the Compact series. The drops effectively raise the brake hoods. With small hands in particular the levers are easier to reach. Schmolke Carbon series is manufactured to suit your weight and riding style using the best carbon fibre prepeg available (TLO T1000/ SL T800). This, together with a further refined layering plan with less layers, results in yet another reduction of weight.
Stems with 31.8 mm clamping diameter including those with four clamping bolts may be used. These thin walled handlebars may be completed with Schmolke Carbon custom made oversize carbon bar plugs.
