Profile Design - 1/ZeroFive Drop Bar


Product Details


Gone are the days of simply measuring a drop bar by the standard reach, drop and width. Profile Design’s DRiVe metric (Drop Reach Variant) pinpoints the precise position in the drops where riders instinctively place their hands. It is measured via a 73° line beginning at the bar bore. The metric is incorporated into Profile Design’s series of handlebars, designed around a cyclist’s most powerful hand positions. The tops and hoods complement the powerhouse DRiVe position, and the Reach and DRiVe are progressively sized as the bar increases in width. Tops: the 31.8mm diameter full bar width enables a wider array of comfortable hand positions. Hoods: The hood slope is a shallow 7°, eliminating the main reason Profile Design so often sees riders make detrimental bar rotation adjustments in a desperate effort to flatten out the hood slope. The DRiVe Series handlebars deliver a seamless transition from bar to shifter hood without affecting how the drops were designed to fit. Drops: The canted 4° design allows for a wider array of hand positions, while the gradual, dual radius arc erases sharp angles and pressure points caused by more traditional drop shapes. The dual radius is also designed to make the brake levers reachable when riding in the drops.
