DESCRIPTION

The gravel bike handlebar that has everything but the kitchen sink. 

For the rider that wants to go everywhere, the Kitchen Sink Gravel Bike Handlebar is the gravel bike handlebar that has everything.  With widths from 44 cm up to 53 cm, it's clear we believe in wide.  But the added stability and control of a wider gravel bike handlebar 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 to accommodate a variety of gravel riding conditions. 
• 7° degrees of SWEEP means the bar is positioned where your hands want to be, whether you're on the flats, the hoods or the drops during your most epic gravel ride. 
• 25° degrees of FLARE on a compact drop means a stable, aerodynamic drop position that is actually comfortable enough to use on your longest gravel ride or your next bikepacking trip. 
• Optional endurance loop adds an alternative aerodynamic riding position and a perfect spot for gear storage and mounting accessories.

Paired with the ergonomic Cruise Control Grip System and Really Long Bar Tape, and it's a do-everything bar that redefines drop bar comfort.

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.
