When many riders buy bicycle bars for their bike, they will fall into trouble, not knowing which type of handlebar is suitable for them. The following is a brief introduction to the common types of handlebars on sports bicycles and their uses. Straight handle:
1. Straight handle:
It is mostly used for lightweight mountain bikes. Although it is called a straight handle, the straight handle is not a completely straight line, and usually has a certain back-folding angle-the seat effect of this back-folding angle is very large, which can be used by the rider to accurately Subtle angle adjustment, so as to get the most comfortable control feeling during riding.
2. Swallow handle:
Named for the shape of a swallow that spreads its wings. Swallow handlebars are used in a wide range of applications, from urban recreational bikes and touring bikes to heavyweight downhill bikes. However, the swallow handles for different purposes are very different in terms of length and rising angle. For example, MTB Bikes require a riser handlebar with a length of more than 700mm, while the handlebars used by some recreational bikes are shorter, have a higher rise angle, and bend more backward to a certain extent , so that the rider can obtain a more comfortable riding position.
3. Claw handle:
Named for its resemblance to a horn, it is mostly used for road bikes in large group races, and many long-distance travel enthusiasts also use horn handlebars. Claw handlebars usually have three grip positions: the “upper position” in the straight position of the handlebar, the “lower position” in the curved and arched position, and the “hand position” at the joint of the hand change.
4. Horn handle (airplane handle, TT handle):
Aluminum alloy (steel) horn handlebars are mostly used for old-fashioned (or retro) track bikes and time trial cars (TT cars). Born to tell the sprint.
5. Butterfly handle:
Mostly used for long-distance travel bikes. The butterfly handlebar has multiple grip positions, which can help riders gain more riding positions during long-distance cycling trips so that the body will not be overworked by maintaining the same riding position for a long time. Many cyclists’ butterfly handlebars are also used in conjunction with rest bars.
