While the industry is trending towards frames with longer reach and wider handlebars, the stretched out position this puts riders in is often an afterthought. With 10° back sweep and 5° upsweep, the Range Handlebar creates a more ergonomic riding position that’s easier on your shoulders and reduces wrist fatigue.
The Range features 2014 Aluminum Alloy, a trail friendly material resembling carbon’s chatter absorbing qualities in a more cost conscious and durable package.
THE KW EDITION PROMISE
We developed this product with pro rider Kyle Warner who wanted to do something special with his part of the proceeds. We’ve pledged to give 5% of all sales to NICA, the National Interscholastic Cycling Association, to support getting kids into mountain biking.
THE NUMBERS BEHIND COMFORT
While it’s no secret that bike frame designers are favoring longer reach numbers and we’re all enjoying stability from wider bars, what’s often left out of the conversation is the new pressure points these trends create for high impact areas like the ol’ bird bones in your wrist. The Range Handlebar addresses this with a bar that will put you in a more comfy position.
10° BACK SWEEP AND 5° UPSWEEP
This combination helps put your shoulder blades in a more neutral position, especially while climbing and can help reduce unwanted wrist fatigue downhill sections.
Like a good sourdough bread, the rise of a handlebar is also another important part of the equation. We picked 30mm to keep your front end low enough on the longer travel bikes while providing good height for the increasingly popular 120-140mm travel trail rigs.
