FROM JUNE THE MARK CAVENDISH STAR SERIES HANDLEBAR AND STEM FROM PRO WILL JOIN OUR RANGE OF ROAD BARS AND STEMS FROM IN STORE.
Cav demands a no-compromise cockpit and his victorious efforts in last year Tour prove the PRO range is up to the toughest challenge.
The Stem is constructed from unidirectional carbon in a monocoque design for ultimate rigidity - almost double compared to regular PRO Vibe 7S stem. The stem will be available in 105, 120 and 135mm length. With a weight of 170grams.
The Star Series Handlebar will be produced using reinforced alloy, with an internally spined construction. The reason for the choice of alloy is that carbon can be unpredictable after a crash.
Adding four splines in the oversized section of the bar, the rigidity is increased with 9% compared to a regular PRO Vibe 7S handlebar. Just 1% can be decisive in a shoulder to shoulder sprint at 70kmph.
The handlebar with anatomic bend will be available in 40, 42 and 44cm weighing in at 295grams.
PRO components also feature on the Rapha Condor Sharp Team Bike with top sprinter Dean Downing and Dean 'the Duke' Windsor opting for a similar combo. Look out for the Star Series on their bikes too this summer.
