The importance of a good handlebar can't be overstated. It's one of the first things to hit the air as you ride along; so aerodynamics are important. It's where you steer your bike; so design is important. It's where your hands have to handle shifting and braking duties; so ergonomics are important. It's also where you get a lot of power from in your sprint, and your sprint can make or break your race, so stiffness is important. The Winspace Zero is not designed to be a show-queen; placed on a bike on a display stand and never ridden, it's designed to be raced...HARD. Our main goals when designing the Winspace Zero were aerodynamics and stiffness and using our 10+ years of carbon combposite experience we engineered the bar to meet our goals and surpass industry standards for stiffness and safety.
