Deda Elementi M35 Carbon Road Bar
Deda Elementi M35 Bars
The Deda Elementi "M35" handlebar and its stem TRENTACINQUE are the greatest innovation in the field of components for high performance road racing bicycles. No handlebar in the world has such a diameter. The diameter is the main factor of magnitude in the moment of inertia of the section of the handlebar. The moment of inertia is what defines the rigidity of your handlebars - what all riders are looking for, as insufficient stiffness causes dissipation of your precious energy. The M35 is a single piece carbon fiber monocoque with different wall thicknesses to put more strength precisely where it is needed. The fiber used has features specifically designed for competition vehicles where a very high tensile strength is married to an extraordinary capacity for absorbing vibrations. The larger diameter allows for better hand and lower specific pressure, resulting in reduced hand fatigue. The stem TRENTACINQUE is a 3D 2014 alloy forging with different wall thicknesses. Use of the M35 and TRENTACINQUE gives an entirely different and completely new feel while riding. Shape: RHM Width: 42 - 44 - 46cm (outside to outside) Clamp diameter: 35mm Weight: 210 grams (42cm)

About Chain Reaction Cycles
This product is for sale at Chain Reaction Cycles, one of the largest online cycle shops in the world. Opening in 1985, and starting off as a small independent bike shop in Ballynure, it moved to Ballyclare in 1989 and is now based in Doagh (all in Northern Ireland). In addition to regular local service, Chain Reaction Cycles (or CRC as it is often abbreviated to) established itself as a mail order business via advertisements in bicycle magazines; this continued until 1999 where it launched it's now famous website at ChainReactionCycles.com. Their blue themed website stocks around 90,000 products ranging from MTB & Road cycling equipment, to triathlon, BMX and running kit. As per several other leading bike shops, Chain Reaction produce their own product ranges, under brands such as Brand X. To this day CRC sponsor many cycling events, and due to the company's size and efficiency are able to offer very competitive pricing on cycle equipment. In 2016 Wiggle acquired Chain Reaction Cycles, although the two websites continue to operate independently of each other, both with their own distinctive branding and product ranges.
