Cinelli have studied and upgraded 4 new grip zones on this bar, making it more ergonomic and extremely comfortable to hold.
1.PALM ZONE: The central area is wider and slopes outward creating an optimum grip point, more comfortable thanks to the new cable covers. The wide internal bending radius provides more room when gripping in the high position on the sides.
2.POWER ZONE: On the area which slopes towards the brake levers an innovative shape perfeclty suits the palm of the hand creating a new and super efficient grip point. The height of the drop is shorter so that the lower part of the drop can be easily reached.
3.FINGER ZONE: The brake lever is very close and a particular shape under the levers allows a firm grip with 3 fingers when the levers are gripped on high.
REVERS GRIP ZONE In the low drop a gentle but innovative bending facilitates a comfortable position. The cables run inside the handlebar.
4.In the low drop a gentle but innovative bend facilitates a comfortable position.
Road bars are curved to offer a multitude of positions to suit the terrain. When climbing in the saddle you will often ride on the tops which are the part of the bar either side of the stems clamping point. When out of the saddle on climbs or accelerating you will often ride on the lever hoods mounted at the front of the bars curved section. For higher speeds you will find yourself on the drops, which offer a lower more aerodynamic position. Road bars come in a variety of widths, from 36cm wide up to 44cm, a good guide for bar width is your shoulder width, a bar should not be narrower than your shoulders as this can close up your chest, but they should not be so wide that you are creating a large frontal area. Road handlebars come in two clamp sizes, 31.8mm which is oversized and 26/25.8mm which is standard, it is essential that you get the correct clamp size for your stem as a poor fit will slip round. Road bars also come in different shapes and depths, with various bends for ergonomic reasons, some will also feature grooves in the material for your brake and gear cables to slot into, this helps to keep the bar round once tape is applied. Then there is the all-in-one bar and stem systems from brands such as Cinelli's Ram 2 and the Pro Stealth which offer clean lines and look great with their exposed carbon finish.
Cinelli's fame dates back to 1919 with typical Italian flare and beautiful designs. Cinelli frames and racing bikes are legendary in racing history. The carbon monocoque Ram and Bat handlebars benefit from the latest carbon technology. The chic urban Cinelli Bootleg Rat bikes, reflective and gel cork bar tape are niche specialities.
