We have recently developed a cool new product. It will go into wider production and we will soon have a website for it.
We have some materials left after prototyping and would be willing to manufacture for those who are eager for early access. The pair is €20 + €5 for worldwide shipping. It weighs 80g and comes in black color.
Check out the photos and ask if you have anything in mind.
Interesting idea, wouldn't the bar tape just slip right off?
The bar-tape is installed in figure 8 and the surface of the hood is ridged. So as the testing went we had no issues with bar-tape slipping.
anyone else think that one of these with integrated shifter and brake lever would be amazing?!? Sadly impossible with our current levels of technology : /
Yeah, that would be amazing. When wrapped the bar looks really sleek compared to regular hoods
that a Brakeless fixed gear hoods for drop bars. New product in your bartape or are you just pleased to see me
Just get brakes you weirdos
i wanna see it installed on track drops , or those are not cool bars anymore?
Those aren't cool any more
:) just wait, they will come back soon! fixies are coming back around...cant brake, dont want to...
I want to see the wrap job over the very tip (....) - can we get a close up?
They are but not the chrome deep drop pista bars with no grips.
All the kids are riding track bikes with road bars these days
If only these were UCI/BC legal, I'd get a set. Same idea as the new Pinarello MAAT handlebars
If anyone can make a bike ugly it's Pinarello
I'll wrap them soon and post it.
Didn't 8bar do something very similar, 3d printed iirc
Nice product! It definitely does serve niches like longer mileage track events.
Ergonomics wise, maybe you could provide a 3D plinted plug to cover the nut hole. Makes the tape job tidier as well I guess.
Velobike produces track bars with a similiar hooded shape
Hardly affordable though.
... to continue. Nice stuff! again a bit like what aerocoach produces:
but at a fairly decent discount...
We thought about plugging it up, but when wrapped it is not visible or felt.
i like the shape of the deep drop bars, never really tried using one and never rode fixed for more than 5 minutes.
single speeding with a kick brake was the most uncluttered handlebar i managed to have but if the chain jumps out...trouble is coming.... this happened one time and i managed to get the chain under the back tire.... sparks everywhere.....incredibly did not crash!!
These are actually pretty neat.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
