All Box handlebars are engineered and crafted using ‘Oversized’ Technology. Handlebars have a dual purpose as they contribute to both steering and pedaling stiffness. By strategically varying wall thicknesses and tube diameters Box moved material from 3 low stress areas to zones of high load. This has greatly minimized twist and contributed to responsiveness. Concurrently this has increased pedaling stiffness by providing a backstop to the “lifting” phenomenon. There is no point pushing hard on your pedals if you can’t pull up on your handlebars and deliver that power. Power can easily be lost to handlebar deflection and the consequences can lead to poor power delivery and steering control. When combined with Box’s other Oversized components, you’ll experience heightened responsiveness and reduced latency.
Key differences: This particular model handlebar pushes ‘Oversized’ Technology to the extreme as it makes use of carbon fiber to run through those tapered zones. Say good-bye to defection. These bars are engineered for the smaller-sized racers.
