It's hard to beat the smooth lines and classic design of matte black carbon bars with round drops. Rather than trying to introduce new shapes and unnecessary handlebar innovation, Syncros embraces a more traditional aesthetic for its RR1. 0 Carbon Handlebar. It uses a unidirectional carbon fiber construction to dampen road vibrations and reduce fatigue over long rides, resulting in a lightweight shape and stiff, responsive handling. Syncros also reinforces the clamping area to reduce stress hotspots and more evenly distribute load. Though we'd mostly consider the RR1. 0 a traditional bar, Syncros does add a slight ergo bend to provide a more solid platform while riding aggressively at the front of the drops. This tweak enhances the bar's functionality without compromising its clean aesthetics. The bar's 80mm reach and 130mm drop lean toward the shorter, shallower side of traditional, while the RR1. 0's claimed weight of a slim 180g adds to its versatility, making it well suited to being added to a race bike setup or used as a lightweight, dependable addition to the bike you train on every day.
