Thomson road bar features a mild wing shape on top, clamping area wide enough for aero bars, mid-compact reach and drop. This is the modern bar for the modern road bike. Our Road bar wing section is small enough not to restrict hand movement when riding on the top and allows bar angle adjustment with out “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 .
Thomson Road Carbon Handlebar
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.
Both the Road and Cross bar are made in one piece, not three pieces co-molded and glued together.
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 is 78.5mm. Drop is proportional - 40CM 131mm, 42CM 133mm, 44CM 135mm.
1.5K woven impact ends help prevent damage to uni-directional fibers from impact.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kinkyJohnF Top quality product
Bought as a replacement for 42 cm alloy bars that were too narrow for me. The 44cm Thomson Carbon bars are perfect for me. Top section of bar is has a wide flattened 'wing' profile and is very comfortable. The bars are stupidly light. Top of bars are very stiff, flex increases as you move down through the drops, Mid section takes out the 'buzz' on fast descents allowing more comfort and confidence. Bottom of the drop has more 'flex', but in a good way as it allows you to hammer the flats for longer and in comfort without suffering numbness in the hand. The top of bend on the bars allow the hoods to be on a similar level to the flats , which I like. In summary an excellent upgrade in my opinion, which has improved the ride quality of my bike in a way I did not expect. I use with Thomson stem. Which I would also recommend.
