TLO Road-bar Oversize Evo

Black on Black Decals ONLY

Our Evo road bike handlebar is designed with ergonomics in mind for both the drop and the hood position. The evolving curve of the side parts lets you find an aerodynamic but not too deep position on your bike. When riding on the hoods the nearly horizontal forward part of the drop makes for an unbroken line with the hoods. The advantage of this oversized full carbon drop bar is its middle section’s larger diameter. This results in a considerably stiffer road-bar. In addition to that, its wide and flat top makes for anomic and comfortable grip when riding with your hands on the tops. The flat section design is also more aerodynamic than the round-section version with its larger frontal area. In addition, the handlebar comes with recessed cable grooves on its underside following the proven design of our original Compact series. The drops effectively raise the brake hoods. With small hands in particular the levers are easier to reach.

Our TLO series is handmade to specifically suit your weight and riding style using the best carbon fiber prepreg available. This, together with a further refined layering plan with less layers, results in yet another reduction of weight. Stems with 31.8 mm clamping diameter including those with four clamping bolts may be used. These thin walled  carbon handlebars may be completed with our custom made oversize carbon shifter clamps and carbon bar plugs.

ICR ready

TLO Evo models are also available with optional holes for ICR (internal cable routing). This option features 3 holes: One in the inside bend on the left and right side as well as a 3rd hole in the center of the handlebar. If you are planning to use internal cable routing for your build, please remember to select the “ICR ready” option when placing your order. The necessary strengthening will add some 8 g to the bar’s total weight.

Weave options

TLO handlebars can be ordered in 1k or UD weave. 1k is the classic carbon look with biaxially woven fibers. UD (unidirectional) describes a more subtle all-black “non-woven” carbon look where all fibers run in one direction. In general UD carbon parts will be a few grams heavier compared to their 1k counterparts.
