USE Summit Carbon Road Handlebars

new handlebars from use 300x225   USE Summit Carbon Road HandlebarsUltimate Sports Engineering have made a name for itself as a creative and innovative manufacturer of cycling parts for twenty years. Its latest ingenious design is called the Summit.

The Summit is a carbon road bar whose target market is your average road riders who long to be comfortable when cycling for long distances. The Summit has a 31.8mm center section that follows the curve of the handle bar on its upper bend. This will allow the round upper section to be flexible to whatever angle its rider chooses to hold the grip with.

The Summit road bar has a depth of…

The Cinelli x Death Spray Ram 2 Carbon Handlebars feature various mouths all over, giving the nickname to the collaboration “Hand to Mouth”, fitting the bars appropriately. One Cinelli logo is present right smack in the middle of someones mouth. You will not see any stickers or vinyl wraps, which would take away from the artwork. Instead, this is a clean job.
