Titanium gives you a ride quality unavailable in other materials. Thomson manufacturing gives you light weight and no shims at the stem clamp.
Titanium is a wonderful material for a handlebar. It’s not as light as carbon, but for a little weight you get an unparalleled ride. Strength and beauty count for something as well. This bar will look good and ride well on your bike for years. Built for 31.8mm stems, no shims are used for clamping the Thomson Titanium bar. It’s the very best bar you can buy for a rigid MTB. Certified to EN, tested to DIN+.
Ti, Wide, and Handsome. Saddle up and ride.
Our carbon fiber road racing handlebar features a mild wing shape on top, clamping area wide enough for aero bars, and mid-compact reach and drop. This is the modern road racing handlebar bar for the modern road bike. Our road bar wing section is small enough not to restrict hand movements when riding on the top, and allows bar angle adjustment without “locking out” your wrists. Shaping on the bottom side of the wing allows housing to be taped out of the way without the use of narrow housing channels or internal routing, both of which shorten bar life. Certified to EN, tested to DIN+.
The layup uses 3 different fiber types with different tensile strengths and tensile modulus, including High Strength carbon fiber. This helps allocate stiffness and flex where needed.
All carbon fiber is produced by Toray and uses tailor-made Nano Epoxy Resin for very high impact resistance. Toray is the main supplier of carbon fiber for Boeing and Airbus.
The Road bar is made in one piece, not three pieces co-molded and glued together. The bars are molded over an EPS mandrel to avoid wrinkles inside the layup during molding. Most other bars are molded over inflatable nylon bladders.
Reach for the Road bike is at 78.5mm. Drop is proportional. The road drops are: 42CM 140mm
