Colnago HB02 7075 Alloy Handlebar
Everyone who loves Colnago bicycles and frames knows the company takes its name and reputation seriously. When Colnago offers a component with their name and logo, it has to be a quality item, especially if they contract out to expert manufacturers. The Colnago HB02 Alloy Handlebar is extruded from light weight, stiff and strong 7075 triple butted Ergal aluminum alloy. The modern compact design has a bend radius that integrates well with all current shift levers- electronic or mechanical. With an 82mm reach and 135mm drop, more room is built into the slightly anatomic drop for a lower, more aggressive sprinting position.
Another ergonomic cue come from the bar top shape, which haas been flattened slightly for a more comfortable resting position. Colnago sizes their bars center to center, from the end of the drop, which is in vertical plane to the curve of the drop, where the lever mounts. The 31.8mm diameter offers excellent stiffness and much of that size extends across the top of the bar from the stem mounting zone. The center and relative angle of setup are clearly marked for quick and clean installation. The overall combination of features and fit is tantalizing, especially for those riders who want a stiff alloy bar for sprinting. Many of these cyclists like the short reach, but find the concurrent shallow drop to be too limiting. There aren't many bars out there that match the Colnago HB02 7075 Alloy Handlebar, which strikes us as very- Colnago.
