Another premium product from American brand Thomson, the Thomson Carbon Road Handlebars are a great option for riders looking for a truly top drawer drop bar option. Available in widths from 400mm to 460mm and with a level of drop which is proportional to their width, the bars are made from carbon produced by Toray - the same supplier used by Boeing and Airbus.
As you would expect from Thomson, the attention to detail in both the design and manufacture of the handlebars is impressive: three different types of carbon fibre are used to allocate stiffness and flex where needed, and the bars are molded over an EPS mandrel rather than the usual nylon bladders - this prevents any wrinkling during the molding process. Monocoque construction ensures safety and comfort.
Thomson describes the bars as ‘mid compact’ in terms of their reach and drop. There is plenty of ‘safe clamping space’ along the top (90mm in total) for adding crosstop levers, clip on aero bars or whatever else you might want to attach to the bars. Overall the bars are very lightweight, stiff and comfortable, as well as being exceptionally well made.
