Winner of the Taipei Cycle D and I Awards of 2014, the TiMania road handlebar is a gorgeous and unique example of blending calssic and modern materials. By pairing titanium and carbon fiber, ControlTech has been able to produce a bar that showcases the best characteristics of both materials.The titanium clamp area is specifically designed to withstand the clamping forces from a typical stem, while delivering the classic forgiving ride of titanium. Pairing this classic material with the stiffness and light weight of unidirectional carbon fiber drops produces a handlebar with the aesthetic styling and ride quality of traditional titanium, with the modern stiffness and light weight of carbon fiber. The TiMania road handlebar has the beautiful styling of a traditional full-ti handlebar and rides like a full-ti handlebar, but with the added weight savings, stiffness, and vibration dampening of carbon fiber in areas where it counts. Making it the perfect choice for those gram conscious riders searching for the look and feel of titanium for their next build.
It is highly recommended that your ControlTech TiMania road handlebar be installed by a competent mechanic, using a calibrated torque wrench set at a MAXIMUM of 7 Nm. Be sure to properly clean your stem and bar interface, as well as use the appropriate grease on each of your stem bolts. For the ideal uniform titanium aesthetic, pair your ControlTech TiMania handlebar with the TiMania stem, headset spacers, and seatpost.
