SECONDS SAVED OVER THE COURSE OF A 40K
The BP4 created 127 grams average drag (AD) less than standard design Tops position handlebars. 100 grams of drag (+/-) = 1 second per 1 km.
BREATHS SAVED OVER THE COURSE OF A 40K
Rider producing 205 watts of power averaging 20mph saved 12 breaths per minute over standard tops position. 40k, elapsed time of 75 minutes x 12bpm = 900 breaths saved
MINUTES REACHED IN MAXIMAL HILL CLIMB TEST
Rider climbed 2 more minutes in BP4 position at maximal power output to failure, rider on standard design tops failed at 23 minutes with higher VO2 during entire climb.
The patented BP4 handlebar position allows the rider to be biomechanically and ergonomically optimized, resulting in superior aerodynamics, enhanced comfort, increased power and greater VO2 efficiency.
As seen on:
“I have found out that in uphills with a gradient of 10-20% or so with positioned extra far back on the saddle and the hands in the BP4 position of the handlebars, I get extra power. A clear noticeable difference in the legs & breathing.”Peter
“The single most comfortable bar I have ridden. Incredibly ridged, responsive and light, but still helps to put me into an aerodynamic position. The flattened upper part of the BP4 handlebar allows for a comfortable grasp, and the rigidness of the drops allow for explosive sprinting.”Max
“I just wanted to let you know that I am in love with these bars. Ok Saturday did a 60 mile group ride, and even on daily commuting and work, they are amazing. Are you planning on making any other components in the future?”Billy
“I really like them in general, even though I wasn’t sure I would when I first saw them. They handle well and I think they make climbing a lot easier.”@lostinalltrees
