The Roval Rapide Cockpit stands as a testament to the relentless pursuit of performance in cycling technology. More than a mere handlebar, it’s a sophisticated instrument of speed, meticulously engineered to be the quickest path to victory. This cockpit is not just the fastest we've developed—it's also the smartest, marrying wind-cheating design with significant wattage savings over traditional setups.
Abandoning the usual stem hardware not only cleans up the airflow but also shaves off weight. At 50 grams lighter than the two-piece configuration of the Rapide bar and Tarmac SL7 stem, the Rapide Cockpit is an exercise in unyielding performance. Premium high-modulus carbon fiber is not randomly chosen; it’s the foundation of the cockpit's rigidity, ensuring that the power of World Tour sprinters is directly translated into forward motion. The stiffness-to-weight ratio of this setup is unparalleled, a boon for those who demand nothing but the best from their equipment.
Ultimately, the Rapide Cockpit epitomizes the fusion of design excellence and functional superiority. It’s constructed to offer a noticeable edge through aerodynamics, weight savings, and stiffness, without overlooking the fit. From the choice of high-modulus carbon fiber to the thoughtful inclusion of titanium stem bolts, each aspect is a reflection of its premium status. The range of sizes and shapes, the compatibility with leading groupsets for seamless cable routing, and the practical accessories like the included computer mount—all signify a product that’s as versatile as it is revolutionary. The Roval Rapide Cockpit isn’t just a component; it’s a critical part of your race-winning formula, designed to propel you ahead of the competition.Return to Top
