We have been working on our offroad drop bar for ages. I mean, Ragley has only been going since Feb ’09, but this bar was on the original “to do” list. We’ve been working with (rather than against) other drop bar people out there, and particular thanks to Sam at Singular Cycles has been particularly helpful in the feedback stages.
We’re not going to go into the why’s or wherefores of offroad drop bars, or flared drops, or whatever – and this is another love it or hate it thing, but we like doing stuff like that because I think the world needs it.

Bars will be shipping in 45 days. Colours – blast black and polished silver. More news later. Now – who wants a carbon one?
