Thomson continues the tradition of superior bike components with the carbon road bar. The carbon construction uses three different fiber types to optimize stiffness for performance and flex for comfort. The mildly flattened wing shape along the top of the handlebar provides a comfortable platform for your hands. The underside of the bar is shaped so that cable housing can be taped unobtrusively without the use of housing channels or internal routing, both of which compromise strength and longevity. These bars are also clip-on aero bar compatible. 40, 42, 44 or 46cm.

Material: Toray carbon fiber
Clamp Diameter: 31.8mm
Length: 730mm
Weight, Flat bar: 185 g.
Weight, Riser bar: 210 g.

These rugged, well-thought-out carbon bars are fabricated with three different carbon fiber types, offering different tensile strength and tensile modulus to help allocate stiffness and flex where needed. The bars are molded with an EPS mandrel inside to avoid wrinkles inside the lay-up (most bars are molded over inflated nylon bladders.) Thomson's bar uses only Toray carbon fiber, plus special nano Epoxy Resin for high impact resistance (Toray is the main supplier of carbon fiber to Boeing and Airbus.) 1.5K woven ends help prevent damage to unidirectional fibers from shortening the bar or from impact with the ground. Certified to EN and tested to DIN+. Available as a flat bar (8mm drop, 6° backsweep) or a riser bar (12mm rise, 6° backsweep, 4° upsweep.)
