Hit that "sweep spot", and meet the handlebar that's got your back. While it's no secret that wider bars are en vogue and bike frames are embracing longer reach, the stretched-out position this puts riders in is often an afterthought. So we made sure these 31.8mm handlebars play nicely with modern geos. With 10° back sweep and 5° upsweep, the Range: KW Edition helps put your shoulder blades in a more neutral position while reducing wrist fatigue and discomfort. Inspired by pro rider Kyle Warner's search for the best cockpit configuration, the Range now features 2014 Aluminum Alloy. 2014 is a trail-friendly material, resembling carbon's chatter-absorbing qualities in a more cost-conscious and durable package. It's lighter than the ubiquitous 6061 alloy, and it's more supple than 7075 Series. Last but not least, this handlebar isn't just here for your bike, it's also on a mission to give back to the cycling community. Unlike a traditional signature product (that often means a kickback for the pro rider behind it), for Kyle, it was really important that we did something special. So, we've pledged to give 5% of all sales to NICA, the National Interscholastic Cycling Association. "At the end of the day we are all big kids on bikes, and what better way to keep the sport growing than to give back to the younger generation and the people helping them fall in love with the sport." -Kyle Warner - Material: 2014-T73 heat treated alloy - Weight: 334g - Width: 780mm - Clamp Diameter: 31.8mm - Rise: 30mm - 5° upsweep, 10° backsweep
ONEUP CARBON BARS. Strong, lightweight & vertically compliant. The goal for the new OneUp Carbon Handlebars was to make the best feeling bar possible, something which would let us ride harder for longer. The solution is our patent pending oval shape which combines the best ride characteristics of 31.8mm and 35mm bar standards into one package. This is the most comfortable bar we’ve ever ridden, period. It's strong, lightweight, minimizes arm pump and vibration and maximize steering response. 35 done right. Almost every other carbon bar on the market copies the simple tapered profile of an Aluminum bar. With carbon you can take advantage of more complex shapes to get a better performing product, so that's what we did. If you actually care about bar compliance, then you don't make a regular 35mm diameter bar. Sure you can try to "optimize" the flex slightly with layup, but geometry is king and you're fighting a losing battle. The OneUp bar profile minimizes the length of the 35 diameter clamping area as this is the stiffest portion of any 35 diameter bar. The 35mm clamp diameter quickly changes to a flattened, oval shape in the transition zone and then to a standard 22.2mm clamp diameter for the control zone. We benchmarked the OneUp bar against the most popular carbon bars on the market as well as foam filled aluminum bars. The results were, on average, a 21% increase in vertical compliance (comfort) coupled with a 28% increase in steering stiffness (responsiveness). These are more than just marginal gains. Until now the 35mm diameter standard has had a bad reputation and rightly so. This is 35 Dia. done right.
