In terms of ergonomics, we rely in contrast to our MTB handlebars a 10° frontsweep is used which decreases towards the end of the handlebar. All contact surfaces are optimized in every detail.
Angular and Areal
Thanks to the flattened outer surface, the handlebar is also pleasant to grasp in the lower grip and at the same time provides a secure hold in various riding positions.
The Ergobar is a wave-shaped elevation on the underside. This results in a flat, slightly angular underside of the handlebar. Fits perfectly to the angled, bent fingers.
The area which is flattened at the top and extended far forward is maximally large. This allows the fingers to safely enclose the handlebar and at the same time provides grip.
The combination of contact surface and freedom of movement ensure the best possible pressure distribution.
The pressure measurement shows that the maximised contact surface of the 312R handlebars enables an even distribution of pressure on the hands.
The pressure distribution is shown in colour: white means low pressure, from blue/green/yellow/orange to red the pressure increases.
|Handlebar width C-C (mm)
The individual handlebar width is decisive for an ergonomic position on the road bike and depends on the shoulder width.
Schoulder width = Handlebar width
Shoulder width = distance from the left to the right acromion of the shoulder.
