Over the years we've gradually added more and more items to our range of products. The one item we've been asked for most, due to already producing stems and seatpost, is handlebars. Very early on in the design process we realised we didn't have the necessary equipment to manufacture our own bars so we looked for an experienced partner.
The bars are designed and tested in Barnoldswick by our own engineers, but are manufactured in Taiwan (as are all quality bars currently in the market). Once they are delivered to ourselves we carry out our own rigorous inspection of every bar. The bars feature a unique elongated bulge around both bends, but still allow enough space on even the most cluttered bars. The bulge adds immense strength to the bars without adding significantly to the weight, making the Tech bars one of the strongest bars for the weight.
It was a very difficult decision to move away from our ethos of "made in the UK", but in this instance it was impossible to manufacture them in-house. But don't worry; this is not the start of a trend for Hope.
