The new handlebar series - 3 handlebars 3 areas of use 3 sitting positions
One Quality Level - One Safety Level - The Highest
What our 3x3 of handlebar ergonomics consists of:
With the rise, the backsweep and downsweep increases. This always results in the optimum wrist position and maximum relaxation for the neck and shoulders.
If the handlebars on a trekking or city bike have too little downward bend (downsweep), this automatically causes the elbows to move outward and the shoulders to be pulled toward the head. This posture favors a tensing and aching of the shoulder & neck muscles.
To avoid these problems and relax the muscle chain, the goal should be to get the "shoulders away from the ears". A handlebar with more "downsweep" brings the shoulders down. At the same time, more "backsweep" provides a natural hand position and an elbow position close to the body. The muscles in the neck get better blood flow and relax due to a looser position.
