Cervelo AB09 Flared Carbon Road Handlebar
The AB09 has been Cervelo's go-to aero road handlebar for some time, first used on the on the S-series aero road bikes. Now with gravel and allroad bikes dominant players in the market, the AB09 is now available in a new variation, with a flared drop, which allows the rider to have a wider weight distribution over rougher surfaces while in the drops, for greater stability and more confident control. The 16 degree flare offers a reasonable set-up, while still providing an actual handling benefit.
Made with UD carbon, and a mild top aero profile, the AB09 Flared is both stiff under load and comfortable, with excellent hand and lever positioning. It is fully Di2 compatible with internal routing and sets-up well with any of todays' road lever designs. A compact design with an effective 128mm drop and 80mm reach, the AB09 hits the sweet spot of room and proximity for fast and safe hand transitions.
Cervelo uses textured surfaces at the stem and lever clamping zones for optimal hold over the roughest roads, where the vibration mitigation properties of the carbon lay-up are also apparent.
