From Armstrong to Bettini, professionals have been relying on Deda's innovative components to propel them towards victory. Now it's your turn to climb the podium with the Deda Kronos Aero Handlebars. Featuring the latest in aerodynamic and ergonomic technology, the Kronos provides a race-ready comfort that can't be matched. Get tucked in and hammer down, the Kronos handlebars will take care of the rest.
Deda went to enormous lengths to ensure that the Kronos provide a comfortable time trial position. Knowing that you're going to be stuck in only a couple of riding positions for hours on end, Deda incorporated the fully adjustable Fastblack 2 armrests. The Fastblack 2s can be positioned for optimal length and angle, and can also be transferred to any handlebars in the Deda Parabolica series. The pads are also highly ergonomic for comfort, wicking, and replaceable.
The Deda Kronos is just as aerodynamic as it is comfortable. The Kronos features a full-stream flat design that promotes a laminar airflow from the forward-most point to the aft airfoil wings. To further enhance aerodynamics, the Kronos is designed to accommodate internal shift and brake cable routing. All of these elements, along with your body, work in unison to create a tremendous aerodynamic advantage. The Kronos lets you position yourself further forward; in this position, your body becomes an artificial boundary layer that generates a slight turbulence above the Kronos' surface. The smooth shape, unimpeded by cable housing, is able to keep the airflow attached over more of the bars, and provides a lower level of integrated drag. The Kronos' aero shape is made possible by a full carbon fiber construction, which also offers the advantage of only weighing 550 grams.
The Deda Kronos Aero Handlebars are available in a 42mm width and are only compatible with 31.8mm clamp diameter stems. The Kronos come in the color Black, and is only compatible with 1-1/8in steerer tubes. The Kronos is designed to function with reverse brake levers.
