Strength and stiffness don't come second to aerodynamics. The Altias handlebars exceed twice the ISO strength requirements, ensuring they can handle the demands of the world's top sprint cyclists. 

Built from the highest quality Japanese Toray Carbon Fiber, the Altias Sprint Handlebars are crafted with an unyielding commitment to optimise the balance between modularity and integration. The handlebars come in four different widths - 275mm, 300mm, 325mm, and 350mm - to suit diverse needs and preferences.

The Grip and Aero

A unique grip design works with the riders forearms for an aerodynamic advantage. A 7.93% aerodynamic efficiency gain is measured using with a rider using the Altias Sprint Bars over more traditional styled drop bars such as the Track Sprint Bars.

Various grip positions through the drop ensures rider comfort to maintain an aerodynamic position, The shallow and unique drop shape had gone through dozens of iterations during the development process - testing and generating feedback from many riders at the top level of the sport. the result is a comfortable grip while optimising airflow using trips to enhance the handlebar/rider system.

Standing Starts

  • Ample wrist clearance for launching out of the start gate.
  • A 27mm grip diameter reduces grip strength requirements.

Relaxed Race Grip

  • The grip shape encourages a slightly bent elbow, dropping the riders torso - reducing frontal area.
  • Air trips around the riders hand direct airflow constructively around and away from their forearms.

Aero Tuck Race Grip

  • An aggressive grip position where the hand melds into the handlebar surface - closing up air gaps to reduce turbulence.
  • Air trips guide air around the athletes forearms for improved aerodynamic efficiency.
  • A subtle flair through the drop encourages an inward wrist rotation. Wrists are supported by the drop grip section of the handlebar.
  • The riders elbows maintain a tucked in position, reducing the rider from loosing form while fatiguing.

Optimisation and Modularisation

We have spent 24 months creating a system that is a fine balance between being highly modular, while maintaining the performance benefits of an integrated cockpit. As well as the Altias Sprint Handlebars being able to fit with any standard 31.8mm stem, The bars can be fitted in a semi-integrated modular system. Compatible bars, stems and faceplates can be mixed and matched in a semi-integrated modular system specific to the athletes fit requirements.

Note: Velobike Altias Argon18 direct mount stem and Altias Handlebar Integrated Faceplates sold separately
