Metron 5D and 6D Intregated handlebars kings of TDF sprints
Developed with the expertise and feedback of Pro riders, Metron 5D and Metron 6D Integrated handlebars have been the great protagonist of Tour de France sprints with Jumbo-Visma riders Mike Teunissen, Dylan Groenewegen and Wout Van Aert.
The new Metron 6D integrated carbon handlebar represents an alternative solution to the top seller Metron 5D.
The great success of the Metron 5D integrated handlebar is due to the following features:
• Stiffness: the very wide integrated “clamp area” between the integrated attachment and the handlebar creates a rigid and compact structure, much appreciated by sprinters when they unleash their power.
• Aerodynamics: due to the aero-design.
• Ergonomics: the 10 ° angle forward ensures a more natural position of the wrists and a wider position of the elbows, which facilitates breathing.
Thanks to this last feature, Metron 5D is also chosen by climbers, who benefit from its comfort and ergonomics. For example, the Canadian rider of EF Education First Pro Cycling Michael Woods used it during the last TDF edition. Metron 5D is the only handlebar that combines ergonomics and aerodynamics.
While the Metron 6D is the solution for the cyclist who has greater confidence in traditional design. In fact this handlebar has the same advantages and features of Metron 5D, but it has an angle of 0 ° to the upper bar.
