There are three parts of your bicycle that are connected to your body while riding: pedals, saddle, and handlebars. The majority of cyclists spend a large amount of time of time choosing saddles and peddals forgetting how important handlebars are. 

Incorrectly chosen systems may damage your health and lead to problems with the spine, ulnar nerve, shoulders, and neck. In the worst case, it also may lead to neuropathy-related diseases. 

An great method to find out which size, shape, and type of handlebars works best for you is to consult with professionals and test a number of options before purchasing. Recently manufacturers have started upgrading handlebars making them increasingly wider. That is happening because racers seek perfect stability on rough terrain as well as on the road. However, experienced racers and riders with delicate and small hands often consider trying narrow handlebars.

The best road bars for you should have a shape that provides a comfortable transition and allows you to maximize their work. Below we will discuss different kinds of handlebars regardless of your preferences.

Carbon handlebars against aluminum

Many racers nowadays are tempted by the thought of adding a little more carbon to their bike. It’s easy to see why. Carbon fiber handlebars enhance the aesthetics of the road bike, bring a much lighter feel during the ride, and also have the potential to shave off a little weight and at the same time gain greater control.

Even though aluminum bars are quite popular, even among pros, carbon parts for a bike are growing so fast in the market because they bring you lighter and stronger components to maintain better performance during racing.

(Carbon’s possibility to be molded into any shape allows for fine-tuning of aerodynamics or ergonomics)

If you have decided to tune up your bike, then use a moment and upgrade your old road bars to a new pair.

Our Carbon road bike handlebars include:

Aero handlebars

Aero is the choice of comfort for a long climb, because it slices through the air more efficiently than other types. In addition, the parts are arranged so that they cater for internal cable routing.

Integrated handlebars

Intended for lightweight, beautiful, and more aggressive types for riding. Most of the integrated handlebars are arranged with a full inner cable route.

Classic handlebars (or Drop handlebars)

Road racing usually starts with them. Classic bars have always been the most common decision for a wide portion of road bike users. Unlike flat handlebars, this type has a universal size that allows you to maneuver, change your hands’ positions whenever you want, and switch to any bars while cycling without worrying about the stem. Additionally, classic handlebars allow the racers to transit their weight towards the front side of the cycle for greater control.

If you are purchasing a bike for racing and aim to experience true riding, then choose drop bars.
