Daniel Molloy, founder of Tumbleweed Bicycle, believes that wider handlebars are better.
A wide drop bar allows you to move your hands more frequently to different parts of the wide bar.
Frequently changing the position of your hands can also help reduce pain and discomfort during long rides.
Plus, the wider bars give you more stability and control on descents and more power on technical climbs.
This bar has been tested and evaluated for off-road use, making it suitable for the toughest jobs.
Of course for bikepackers, there’s also space to stow a handlebar bag between the drops.
