TRACK HANDLEBAR "CLASSIC STEEL CHROMED"

The very large knob and the absence of brake levers allow the user the opportunity to challenge the handlebars in any position, but always maintaining a position of support tend to "race" (ie with high aerodynamic, very marked, dynamic thrust angle, and compresed shoulders). During unloading, you can challenge the fold on the top, the width of which is deliberately reduced to the size of 40 cm center/center, to contain the clutter and give to the cross bike/rider a proper harmony; even in this case, the curves are very large, and let to find the most ergonomic position when in use.
