The cockpit is a defining component of any bike’s ride experience. The shape, feel, compliance and stiffness are all fundamental to how your bike rides. What’s more, because it meets clean air at the front of the bike, it’s also an essential element of aerodynamics. Last, but not least, it’s always in your view, so you’d like it to look good. The Black Inc Barstem is designed to thoroughly address all of these points.

The specific grade of carbon fibre deployed in the Barstem delivers very high torsional rigidity to handle the sprinting power of WorldTour professionals while at the same time providing a degree of vertical compliance that reduces fatigue on poor roads and long rides. The drops flare out at 3˚ to increase comfort and control when sprinting or descending.

A total of 19 sizes ensures you can achieve your perfect position. The Barstem accepts electronic shifting wires and hydraulic brake hoses for internal routing. Mechanical cabling must be run externally.
