THOMSON Handlebar Cyclocross Carbon 31.8 mm
The traditional brand Thomson, which is known for high-precision CNC art works in the field of stems and seatposts, dares to enter carbon processing in 2013. Result are technically sensible as well as wonderful handlebars. The handlebars are manufactured by Thomson in Taiwan.
Starting in 2015, Thomson took over the development in the US itself. The handlebar is made from high-strength Toray carbon fibers by means of a special process. This allows a fold-free layup of carbon mats. The handlebar is therefore more durable and stiffer, since the mats are optimally arranged. It can be used with different tensile strengths and tensile moduli three different fiber types. In practice this means: stiff in the pedal, minimal comfort in the saddle.
Compact handlebars allow a lot of relaxed grip positions. Thanks to its compact design, the brake and shift levers are slightly closer to the handlebars, making it easier to switch and brake in the lower steering position. The upper link is provided with a round cross-section to achieve a high stiffness. For a clean train guide, integrated cable guides in the form of a trough are integrated into the handlebar. The handlebar should be unwound.
The handlebar was developed together with Karie Compton. Thanks to her experience and many successes in Cyclo Cyclo, she was able to play a decisive role in the development.
