We threw in a bit of everything for our take on the ultimate gravel handlebar setup. Rise, sweep, and flare make for an ultra-comfortable handlebar that keeps you in control no matter the terrain. Add the Cruise Control Top and Drop Grips and our Really Long Bar Tape to get to next-level comfort and performance.
<< PRE-ORDER IS NOW AVAILABLE! >> Production is underway and we estimate shipping in January.
For the rider that wants to go everywhere, the Kitchen Sink Handlebar is the bar that has everything. With widths from 44 cm up to 50 cm, it's clear we believe in wide. But the added stability and control of a wider bar should not come at the cost of comfort. So we've thrown everything into this handlebar:
• 20mm RISE means less pressure on the hands and a broad range of fit options. • 7° SWEEP means the bar is positioned where your hands want to be, whether you're on the flats, the hoods or the drops. • 25° FLARE on a compact drop means a stable, aerodymanic drop position that is actually comfortable enough to use. • Optional endurance loop adds an alternative aerodynamic riding position and a perfect spot for gear storage and mounting accessories.

"THIS GRAVEL BAR COULD BE PERFECT FOR ULTRA-ENDURANCE RACING" - JACK LUKE, BIKERADAR
"THIS DROPBAR OFFERS RISE, FLARE, INTEGRATED GRIPS FOR IMPROVED COMFORT DURING ALL-DAY RIDES AND A LOOP OFF THE FRONT THAT CREATES AN AERO POSITION WITHOUT RESORTING TO CLIP-ON AERO BARS." - JOSH PATTERSON, ROADBIKEREVIEW
"HANDLEBAR ERGONOMICS HAS BEEN VISITED MANY TIMES, BUT NONE HAVE REALLY GAINED MASS APPEAL. REDSHIFT SPORTS’ APPROACH IS DIFFERENT BY ADDING SURFACE AREA TO KEY PARTS OF THE DROP BAR." - CLIFFORD LEE, CX MAGAZINE
We think wider is better. Particularly when riding off-road, the additional leverage and stability afforded by the wider handlebars dramatically improve handling and control, especially while descending and climbing.
If you're used to riding with a typical road bike drop bar width (38-46cm), we highly suggest trying a wider bar - the difference in effective arm angle is negligible, but the effect on control and comfort is dramatic. If you're concerned about going wider than the common advice to "aim for shoulder width", look at mountain bike handlebars as an example - 76-80cm wide handlebars are common, even though almost nobody has shoulders that wide. Very few people want to go narrower once they've tried a wider bar.
