The Thomson Carbon Road handlebar features a mild wing shape on the top. This is a modern bar for modern road bikes with a mid-compact reach and drop. The wing section is small enough not to restrict hand movement when riding on the top and allows bar angle adjustment without â€œlocking outâ€� your wrists. These road bars have a clamping area wide enough for aero bars. Shaping on the bottom side of the wing allows housing to be taped out of the way without the use of narrow housing channels or internal routing, both of which shorten bar life.
