At RIDE ALPHA, cockpit position is an obsession. The handlebar is the direct extension of your body, the first thing you touch and the one that enables the feel of variations in the terrain. That’s why we’re obsessed!
The RIDE ALPHA handlebar was developed in order to offer the most intuitive shape possible and to simplify the handlebar adjustments in relation to the stem, but also to the brakes, shifters and other components.
Obviously, the material choice, the manufacturing and finish quality had to live up to our expectations; a top quality standard paired with an uncompromised reliability.
We chose to use Aluminium 7075 triple-butted because this is a high-end alloy which lowers the weight to 294g while maintaining the reliability of a 780mm handlebar that you can easily shorten with precision thanks to the laser engraved markers.
With a functional and practical design,here are the figures:
- 5° Up sweep
- 7° Back sweep
- 30mm/1.18" Rise
Basically, the bar is low for a more aggressive position on the bike, fitted to the modern bikes and handlebar setups we tested on our favourite singletrack.
For full precision we use a laser-engraving with specific markers for every single component on the bar so you can get things positioned exactly where they need to be. No more stickers!Whether you need to remove or a replace your levers, you will easily be able to put them back in position.
As usual with RIDE ALPHA products, the anodised handlebar with its laser engraving, polished logo and matte finish (blasted with micro glass beads), reinforces the importance of things looking good.
The RIDE ALPHA handlebar is the perfect match with our Freeride and Enduro stems!
