With their first foray into cycling beginning in 1989 with a pair of aluminum bar ends ControlTech has been producing products specifically for riders who seek the best. Although their simple beginnings were in aluminum components they now offer a slew of products made from carbon, scandium, titanium, or any combination of the three materials. Maintaining a company wide philosophy of: Reliability, Ingenuity, Quality and Value we can see their passion for the cycling industry in each of their unique products.
The Tux Carbon Handlebar is a perfect example of ControlTechs dedication to producing high quality components at a reasonable price. The unidirectional carbon construction offers ideal strength properties while maintaining a low manufacturing cost. Designed with performance in mind the Tux bar features ample drop with 140mm with a reasonable 78mm of reach. Paired with a sweeping bend this bar fits a sort of middle ground with its shallow reach and impressive drop. With routing grooves for easy cable management this sleek bar will complete any build. While this bar may not be flashy it certainly makes up for it in performance and comfort.
