Thomson handlebar Cyclocross KFC One 31.8 mm
The traditional brand Thomson, which is known for high-precision CNC art in the field stems and seatposts, 2013 ventured into the realm of carbon processing. Result are technically reasonable and wünderschöne handlebar. The handlebars are manufactured at a designated Thomson in Taiwan.
From 2015 Thomson wants to take over the production in the US itself. The handlebar is made of high strength
Toray fibers manufactured using a special process. This allows wrinkle-free Layup
the carbon mats. The handlebar is therefore permanently durable and rigid, since the mats are optimally arranged.
It can be used with different tensile strengths and tensile moduli three different types of fibers.
In practice this means: stiff out of the saddle, minimal comfort in the saddle.
Compact handlebar allow many, relaxed grip positions. With its compact design, the brake and shift a little closer to the handlebar, can be so connected and braked pleasant in Lower link position. The upper link is provided with a round cross-section in order to achieve a high stiffness. For a clean cable routing are in the handlebars integrated cable guides in the form of a trough. The handlebars should be wrapped continuously.
