BP4 Goes South of the Border For A Win

BP4 Goes South of the Border For A Win One of our newest fans to the BP4 family is Juan Manual Yapur from beautiful Mexico. He has been riding the most anatomically and biomechanically correct handlebars long enough to discover the benefits in comfort and performance. Here is a review he posted on Facebook. I used the translator since the original is in Spanish. You will understand the gist of it. Report for all four of my readers, friends and clients: After several weeks of training and competing with my new handlebars bp4 - design I have the following report: What Mount without making any additional changes on the bike. Immediately note that my position has improved significantly, down to the height of the various positions on the handlebars: the position in the controls is now more advanced and low. The new position allows a gesture more relaxed and aerodynamics. Rolling in the peleton, holding the controls I'm more aerodynamic than before and in the new position with hands, arms and shoulders more relaxed. In position of maximum effort or "Tempo" (for example a leak in solitary) in the new position and folding his arms my position is very similar to running aero-bars. Demarrages in violent attacks or packaging for the curvature of the handlebars this significantly more aggressive. Improving-in my opinion - the speed of the art. Without a doubt a great invention of my amigo Richard Laporte that puts our reach superior comfort and proven performance. Get your...

Riding Nyes Place 20% Grade With Tim Z On BP4 Handlebars

Riding Nyes Place 20% Grade With Tim Z On BP4 Handlebars We asked Tim Z if he would like to ride a 20% climb on our BP4 Design handlebars. Since he has been riding them since late 2014 and has a lot on miles on them, he said sure. I have to tell you that 20% grade is a real gut buster. Cars strain to get up that steep of a grade. It was the perfect place to do the photo shoot and video that shows how the BP4 Handlebar allows the rider to be in a biomechnically and anatomically correct position. By putting the body, hands, in proper alignment, the ability to transfer power to the pedals is amplified. Hip angel opens up, chest is relaxed because the hands are not over pronated which can cause constriction in breathing. Tim performed like a champ and said he needs a pair for his tandem because regular bars did not feel good anymore. I asked him how much time he spends on the BP4 position in relation to the hoods and the drops. Keep in mind that most riders spend 80-90% of their time on the hoods because the standard tops are not comfortable and the drops are, well, drops. He said that he now spends 90% of his time in the BP4 position. We are creating converts in growing numbers with great reviews (Team BP4) from our riders. Enjoy the photos and video. Superior Comfort. Proven Performance. Shop our Carbon...
