Specialized Expert Alloy Women's Shallow Road Bars
Specialized Expert Alloy Women's Shallow Road Bars are indeed a fine set of drop handlebars for a women's road bike.
'Shallow' means there is a comparatively short distance between the top of the bars and the drops.
For many people (especially shorter riders, including most women) shallow drop bars makes for an easier transition from the brake hoods to the drops.
- Specialized Expert Alloy Women's Shallow Road Bars also offer a shorter reach to the brake levers and STI gear shifters, so are particularly appreciated by riders with short hands.
- Strong, lightweight anodised aluminium handlebars.
- 31.8mm diameter bar centre.
- Shallow bend drop: 123mm drop x 75mm short reach.
- Available in 36 or 38cm width - again this narrower width (compared with the 42cm wide bars most road bikes come equipped with) contributes to rider comfort if you find yourself cycling with arms spread-eagled on bars that are too wide.
- Designed for women, shallow bars are equally fit for any male rider looking for a handlebar, which offers a shorter reach to the brake levers and/or a shallower drop.
Choosing the correct width of drop handlebar
Rule of thumb - most riders get on best with bars that allow you to cycle with your hands on the brake hoods with your arms stretched straight forward - not outwards and inwards. The bars should therefore be approximately the same width as the distance between your shoulder blades.
'This women’s-specific, strong aluminium bar provides a comfortable and smooth transition from the top to the hoods and drops.'
