Thomson’s Trail Bar is at the centre of the Handlebar world. Without hitting the lightweight heights of Carbon, the US brand’s Aluminium offering is still plenty light and much tougher than a carbon counterpart. When combined with an X4 Stem, Thomson’s Aluminium bars make a perfect combination for trail riding, touring and rocky single track.
The Thomson Trail Bar measures 31.8 at the centre to provide a head of torsional stiffness while a 750mm width reduces stress concatenations.
Butted and tapered for extra longevity the ends of the bar are slightly thicker to resist damage from scrapes, scraps and those rare tumbles. During manufacture, instead of hand grinding, (a process that can hide inconsistent wall thicknesses), the bars are made using a hydraulic press. This process is what forms Thompson's uniquely consistent wall thickness and close tolerances, especially in tapered sections.
