Handlebars & Stems
There are a wide range of bike handlebars and stems available depending on the kind of cycling activity you are interested in, so make sure you bear in mind exactly how you will be using your bike before you buy. From road bars to mountain flat bars, all the bicycle handlebars available these days offer cyclists comfort, durability and high performance, with the materials being used, such as carbon fibre and aluminium, giving all the components the benefit of being lightweight and stylish.
Popular brands such as Ritchley bring you a specialist experience and the very highest quality; all designed to offer the right reach, drop, sweep and ergonomics for your chosen event. Match your bars and stems to suit your height and shape, getting the positioning just right for you. The look and feel of all these products is exceptionally high too, coming in a variety of colours such as matt black and high-polish silver finishes.
One of the important areas to consider when choosing the right bike handlebars is choosing the right width for your use. Low, narrow bars are aerodynamic and the best choice for racing or time trials as they give you little drag and are good for sharp cornering, while wider bars are better for free riders as they offer slightly more control at lower speeds.
Like bicycle handlebars, stems come in a variety of sizes and styles. Again, choosing the right style for your type of riding is important and will offer you better performance. Stems come in a wide range of lightweight, yet strong materials.
