Just like the Oversize model, our FullOver dropbar has a larger cross sectional profile reaching from the bar mounting to the mid section of the bar, resulting in a perceptible increase in stiffness. In addition, the drop section of the bar is tapered down to a diameter of 27,5 mm only, instead of the usual 24 mm. The Advantages are obvious – the larger diameter increases the stiffness of the handlebar’s drop section even further. Especially for riders with larger hands another convincing benefit is the much more pleasant grip sensation in the dropped position.
The construction of the bar’s top section allows the brake levers to be mounted in a way that the levers and the handlebar merge perfectly. This special top section construction makes the levers point more upwards, resulting in a higher comfort when riding in the lever position.
The additional weight of 5 g in comparison to the other TLO bars is being more than compensated due to the special carbon bindings for the shifters. The weight advantage of theses bindings is 18 g and is included in the delivery.
The drop of the bar is 138 mm, its reach measures 89 mm. The FullOver has integrated cable grooves for proper cable housing installment.
Our TLO series is manufactured to suit your weight and riding style, using the best carbon fiber Prepregs available (about carbon). Together with a further refined layering plan with fewer layers, this results in yet another weight reduction. The bars clamping diameter is 31.8 mm and is also allowed to be mounted on stems with four clamping bolts.
For these thin walled handlebars we offer our custom made oversize carbon bar plugs.
For now the FullOver will be manufactured only in 46 cm width (measured outside).
Please keep in mind that we measure our road bars from outside to outside. Our standard handlebars are not made to be used with triathlon or time trial bars. If you want to use one of our bars with aero bars, please inform us when placing your order. The necessary strengthening will add some 8 g to the bar’s weight.
If desired, we can also custom fit your bar with longer ends. All our bars may be shortened at their ends by 10 mm. Trade customers, as a rule, are supplied with standard bars, that’s no time trial bar reinforcement and short bar ends.
TLO handlebars can be ordered in 1k or UD weave. 1k is the classic carbon look with biaxially woven fibres. UD (unidirectional) describes a more subtle all-black “non-woven” carbon look where all fibres run in one direction. In general UD carbon parts will be a few grams heavier compared to their 1k counterparts. Find out more about UD and 1k here.
Always use a torque tool for installation!
