On Monday the new Specialized Expert Handlebar arrived at Bicycle Therapy and we are very excited about this. The bar features a traditional round bend, but is shallower and has a more natural transition to the brake lever hood. In other words, there is more useful real estate for most riders.
This shape was formerly only available in the Easton EC90 SLX3. While this coveted handlebar is still a favorite at the shop, its price tag makes it a substantial upgrade to the cockpit. The Specialized Expert’s $45 price brings practical ergonomics within reach of more cyclists.
