Rapidé ControlStick 750c Carbon Flat Bar
Rapidé ControlStick 750c Carbon Flat Bars are 750mm wide and have a natural feeling 9 degree back bend for all day comfort and control. The Flat Top +-5mm design allows for a 5mm drop or rise in bar height. The high quality carbon fiber construction means low weight and great fatigue reducing vibration absorption out on the trail.
Why Go Wide?
The 750mm width gives extra control on downhills and rough sections, enhances cornering performance by allowing you to tip further into corners in while remaining centered over the bike plus give fantastic leverage for climbing and sprinting.
Wide bars are an essential upgrade that you will wonder how you ever did without!
What Width Bar / Length Stem To Use?
The general rule of thumb is to maintain a 2:1 ratio of handlebar width to stem length. For every 20mm increase in handlebar width you should reduce your stem length by 10mm. So if you’re running 660mm bars with a 100mm stem and want to try a handlebar that is 720mm wide you will need to pair that 720mm handlebar with an 70mm stem to maintain a relatively consistent position on the bike.
Like most rules of thumb, this 2:1 ratio is by no means absolute and it is only useful if you’re starting from a comfortable fit position.
Crash Replacement Policy
Assessing any damage done to a carbon fiber part requires more experience than is needed to inspect metal parts. If you crash your bike and the main force of the impact is absorbed by the handlebar, we strongly encourage you to replace the bar, even if there are no visual indications of damage.
If this crash occurs within one year from the date of retail purchase, Rapidé offers a crash replacement program, substantially reducing replacement cost. To take advantage of this program, contact us for details.
