Profile Design Carbon Bar End

4/5 (1 Reviews)
MSRP : $55.00


Product Description

Profile used multi-layered carbon in an ergonomic shape to create their carbon bar ends. This "brief" style is unobtrusive yet works perfectly when you need additional upper body torque for climbing.

Strengths:    Very nice ergonomic design.
Length is unobtrusive.
Though they are carbon, they can take a solid hit.


Weaknesses:    The bars may be too short for a person with larger hands.

Bottom Line:   
Not the lightest bar end on the market, but its ergonomic design feels natural to the hand. And when you're on that long haul up hill the only thing that should get tired are your legs, not your hands or wrists. These do a fine job of releaving the fatigue and giving you the torque. But like I said earlier, if you have large hands these won't work for you. Size'em up before you leave the shop.
