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.

I heard from another thread that this could mean my derailleur hanger is loose, saddle loose, frame cracked, or, among other th ... Read More »

Cracked Carbon Fiber Wheel

Riding Downieville yesterday I cracked my carbon fiber rear wheel at the beginning of the 1st divide. After replacing some burped air the wheel held up for the rest of the ride but I kept about 35lbs of air in it to hold the seal. Question is, can CF wheels be repaired? is it one and done?Read More »

The 2015 version has a newer fork (Lefty PBR 100 29, PBR XC damper, Hybrid Needle Bearing Technology, 45mm offset). Does anyone know an ... Read More »
