The importance of a bicycle handlebar that fits your needs

The handlebar is one of a crucial component on your bicycle. It’s one of the three major contact points with the bike (together with saddle and pedals) and it also controls how the bike handles. It plays also an important role as it determines the transition between the top, hoods or drop position, and affects the capability of using effectively the bicycle. On a flat ride, uphill or descent , comfort and good posture are of vital importance. Features such as the drop, reach and width will make the difference during your ride! At Deda Elementi you can find handlebars of various shapes, a range of drops, reach and materials to meet the needs of all types of cyclists. Currently the most popular shape is the RHM (rapid hand movement), a compact geometry that allows you to have a fast transition from the hoods to the drop and provides a superior confort when you ride the on the bar-end. Others 3 handlebars curves are still available at Deda range depending on your preferences, the Shallow (or Italian round), the Deep (or Belgian round) and Anatomic. More recently we have introduce the EOS (Endurance Optimized Shape) for the gravel handlebar Gera with a super compact reach and drop to deliver extra comfort and control. For road, gravel or mtb you can always find your best handlebar. Discover more information here after.
