This semi-compact carbon road bar from New Ultimate features thoughtful ergonomic design in a visually stunning, lightweight package. The comfortable flat upper hand perch of the bars retain the bar's wide 31.8 clamp diameter with subtle transitions from the adjacent round cross sections. In this climbing position, the front of the bar is also slightly grooved for secure finger placement. The progessively radiused drops ensure both a flat transition to the lever hoods and a superior grip when hands are placed in the lower position.
The cosmetic outer carbon layer on both the gloss and matte carbon versions gives the bars a unique marbled appearance. The third version is painted in opaque gloss white.
These New Ultimate bars are grooved to allow routing of brake and shift housings underneath the bars, with and integrated guide to keep the housings in place. The stem and shifter clamp sections are textured to increase friction and reduce the possibility of slippage.
