Profile Design 1/ThirtyFive Road Handlebar
The Profile Design 1/ThirtyFive road handlebar takes the best of both modern compact bars, and more traditional round bend bars, and combines them into one distinctive shape. The 1/ThirtyFive bar retains the flat top section of modern compact bars for a smooth transition between the bar tops and your STI, ErgoPower, or DoubleTap levers, making for a comfortable and easy transition from the bars to the hoods. But it also takes the huge 148mm drop, very round shape, and nearly flat drop section of traditional Belgian-style bars for riders who like to ride in the most aggressive, aero position possible. The 80mm reach is a little longer than most compact bars, but only by a few millimeters, so it won't have you stretched out too far, and is ideal for those who need a little extra arm room. The shape of the bar also gives you plenty of forearm room for sprinting for the bars, or for those with bigger hands.
