Thomson handlebar Cyclocross KFC One 31.8 mm
The traditional brand Thomson, which is known for high-precision CNC works of art in the field stems and seatposts, dares 2013. in the field of carbon processing. Result is technically feasible and wünderschöne handlebars. The handlebars are manufactured at a designated Thomson in Taiwan.
From 2015 Thomson will take over production in the US itself. The handlebar is made of high strength
Toray fibers manufactured using a special process. This allows wrinkle-free layup
Carbon mats. The handlebar is thus permanently durable and stiffer because the mats are optimally aligned.
It can be used with different tensile strengths and tensile moduli three different fiber types.
In practice, this means stiff saddle, minimal comfort in the saddle.
Compact handlebar allow many, relaxed grip positions. Thanks to its compact design, the brake and shift a little closer to the handlebar, can be switched so pleasant in lower link position and braked. 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 handlebar integrated cable guides in the form of a trough. The handlebars should be wrapped continuously.
The driver was developed together with Karie Compton. Through their experience and multiple successes in Cyclocross she could bring decisive in the development.
