Singletracks has posted a review article on Thomson’s new titanium handlebar. These bars are part of Thomson’s latest product venture branching out from the seatposts and stems that we all love. They’ll be offering handlebars in titanium like this review, aluminum, and carbon.
Update: It is a bummer but Thomson is not making any of their handlebars in the United States.
You can read more about Thomson’s 2013 products in my previous trade show roundup.
“The upshot: they ride a little more comfortably than the carbon bars they replaced on my bike, especially on bigger hits, where they take the sting off. It’s a great compromise; they’re comfortable, but not so flexible that they give a vague steering feel or unpredictable handling.” – Singletracks
