Hit that "sweep spot", and meet the handlebar that's got your back. While it's no secret that wider bars are en vogue and bike frames are embracing longer reach, the stretched-out position this puts riders in is often an afterthought. So we made sure these 31.8mm handlebars play nicely with modern geos. With 10° back sweep and 5° upsweep, the Range: KW Edition helps put your shoulder blades in a more neutral position while reducing wrist fatigue and discomfort.
Inspired by pro rider Kyle Warner's search for the best cockpit configuration, the Range now features 2014 Aluminum Alloy. 2014 is a trail-friendly material, resembling carbon's chatter-absorbing qualities in a more cost-conscious and durable package. It's lighter than the ubiquitous 6061 alloy, and it's more supple than 7075 Series.
Last but not least, this handlebar isn't just here for your bike, it's also on a mission to give back to the cycling community. Unlike a traditional signature product (that often means a kickback for the pro rider behind it), for Kyle it was really important that we did something special. So, we've pledged to give 5% of all sales to NICA, the National Interscholastic Cycling Association.
"At the end of the day we are all big kids on bikes, and what better way to keep the sport growing than to give back to the younger generation and the people helping them fall in love with the sport." -Kyle Warner
