A brand new cockpit.
If you're looking to replace your stock bars with lighter, stiffer carbon drop bars for race season, don't overthink your decision. It's hard to beat smooth lines and clean black matte carbon at the helm of your race machine, and Syncros wisely doesn't try to with the RR1.0 Carbon SL Handlebar. The lighter version of Syncros' classic RR1.0, the RR1.0 SL comes molded from a higher modulus carbon fiber, which allows Syncros create a lighter, thinner bar without a sacrifice in strength and rigidity on the roads.
While the RR1.0 SL's lower weight suits it well to being used as a race bar, Syncros' carefully engineered layup absorbs road vibrations to take away the stiff, harsh feel that plagues some carbon bars. Use it for your everyday training rides without worrying you'll end your ride with numb hands and sore shoulders after feeling every bump and divet in the road. Syncros further addresses comfort by using a drop shape we'd almost go so far as to call a hybrid of ergo and traditional, with a reach of 80mm and a drop of 130mm. These measurements situate the bar towards the shorter, shallower side of traditional. The shape wards off fatigue during longer races or training rides, blending comfort with clean, minimal aesthetics equally at home in a road race or weekend group ride.
