Thomson KFC One Carbon Cross HandlebarMultiple championships later, Katie Compton has the technical credibility and racing experience to help Thomson deliver one unbelievable handlebar to market. Her tenaciousness and raw talent have delivered her to podium after podium, and now you can reap the benefit of her cyclocross trial and error with the Thomson KFC One Carbon Cross Handlebar.
The Thomson brand is synonymous with precision and longevity. Many riders choose Thomson components even in the face of added weight. They're that good. While you could supply your road or mountain bike with a Thomson stem, seatpost and seatpost collar, you could not complete the trifecta for core bike strength without a Thomson Cyclocross Handlebar, because they didn't exist; until now.
Thomson, inextricably influenced by the aerospace industry, knows how to CNC as good as anyone today. Their leading and innovative designs are highly lauded by the industry and riders alike. So, when news came out that a highly anticipated road handlebar was on the way to production, you could imagine the excitement felt. The Thomson KFC One Carbon Cross Road Handlebar does not disappoint. It features twin flats on the bottom of the bar, which allow you to tape your housing and create a round bar when wrapped. The top profile is as round and as wide as possible. This allows auxiliary brake levers to be safely used and still leave lots of room for your hands. The bar is certified to EN and tested to DIN+, so you can rest assured that they will not fail. If that weren't enough, Thomson also warrants their Carbon, Titanium and Aluminum Handlebars to be free from defects in material and workmanship for two years, from the date of purchase, to the original owner.
