Life is under pressure, and people with pressure can’t breathe. At this time, I need to relax myself. I also have pressure. I also want to relax. I chose to ride Gravel. It is not necessary to go to the old forest to be called off -road. It is not necessary to go to the backcountry of the poor country to cross. As a part of the hustle and bustle of the city, I choose to take the material on the spot, adapt to the local conditions, walk in the green forest of the lights, and walk in the city of car water. middle.
The steps are my obstacles. The gap is my platform. Every place is bumpy. It is my practice site. Every street is my new stage.
Riding Gravel is riding control. As a “heavy taste” highway vehicle, although Gravel cannot be completely divided with highway cars, but the place where road cars can go, I can go, the highway car is difficult to walk, I can go, this can, this can go, this can go, this can go, this can go, this can go, this can go, this can go. The foundation of everything is control.
When your own technology and level will not have greater breakthroughs for the time being, the most direct way to improve the control is to strengthen the control of the vehicle. Traditional highway cars and traditional Gravel use conventional bending handles. The width is narrow and flat. Although it is conducive to your high -speed cycling, it is not conducive to you. Handle fun.
Mountain cars, with straight handbars, longer force arms, and broader perspectives, can make you better control the vehicle, but you can not directly transplant the straight mountain cars on the highway or Gravel. Isn’t it “four different”?
Although it is impossible to directly use the “word handle” and “swallow” of the mountain car, you can choose a smarter way to improve the control, that is, the exterior handle.
In fact, the outer skimming handle is not a “fresh product”. As early as a few years ago, the Highway Bend of FSA adopted the design of the slightly skimming design to increase the control ability of the driver. As for the more taste of the gameplay, the Gravel models with higher control requirements, Pro’s Discover series under Pro, has specially developed a set of “special” products for Gravel models. This experience is the Discover series aluminum alloy Skill the handle.
The overall bend uses 6066 aluminum alloy material, which is light and strong, and the measured weight is 289 grams. This weight is not light. However, the extracted materials and the requirements for rigidity are still acceptable. At the same time, I found that Deda’s Gravel100 was used to use 7075 aluminum alloy material, which was 100 grams lighter than Discover, but the price was much more expensive. Other brands that are at the same price as Discover and the same 60 series of aluminum alloy are curved, which is a bit heavier when the outside angle is far less than Discover. Still a little better.
In terms of size, my conventional bending handle is 42 cm in the middle, and the Discover’s externally chose me to choose the same 42 cm specification.
Skim on the outside 30 degrees, exaggerated exaggeration. In fact, considering that the bending handle is also installed, in order to ensure that the hand posture of the upper riding is normal, the external angle will not be too exaggerated. The existing existing skimming on the market controls basically around 12-25 degrees. Discover’s outer skimming can be grasped with a 30-degree avant-garde design, which will inevitably bring a more direct and crisp feeling.
In addition, the Discover series also has an aluminum alloy bend with a 12 -degree skimming corner and a carbon fiber curvature of the 20 -degree carbon fiber curvature, but in my opinion, since you have chosen the outer cricket, that is, that is, that is, it is For those who are pursuing, don’t be so conservative, one step in place, choose the largest angle, experience the happiness that brings you to you when riding a complex pavement. With 30 degrees of outer crickets, I want to change and I can’t bear it. I can’t bear it.
The elliptical tube of the ergonomic design is not used, but the traditional round tube design is used, and it does not have the internal routing function. This is to tell users that Discover’s products are simple and rude, which will save you ” The troubles of piercing needle, tough guy style.
However, PRO’s products always have inextricable relationships with Shimano. For Shimano DI2 electronic transmission, the end integration of the controller design is opened. ” We just don’t want to do it. “If you use DI2 electron transmission and control the controller, you can also use this external skimming handle. Under the simple and rude appearance, there are such intimate details, iron Han tenderness. This also hides implies: the same brand, the same dream (you all use DI2).
The development of science and technology has now been matured that the production process of aluminum alloy products has not been mature. It is reflected in the top of Discover, that is, the entire handlebar section is smooth, the tube wall is thin and uniform, and the interior is smooth and delicate. Coupled with the sandblast paint on the outside, I have a good and wild personality.
Bending the “small bend” form, the reach value
The millimeter, the Drop value is 100 mm. It is no surprise. It is basically the same as the conventional bend. You can replace it directly, and you don’t have to worry about whether you will use it.
The next handle is also a conventional circular tube design without changing diameter. However, the big exterior and small gap can make the lower position ride easier and more comfortable, and the wrist also has a more resting posture.
There is still a scale on both sides, and it is convenient to install the hand.
A curved handle, no matter how much chat, it is boring, or the car is still loaded.
The installation is also convenient, and the wire tube does not need to be extended.
The central scale and horizontal angle are easily blocked by the large cover, which should be noted.
Installed the Gravel car after the outside, um, there is a flavor, and from a slightly beautiful teenager to a irritable brother at once. The visual aspect is very domineering, and the handlebars that are skimped to distinguish your car from other cars on the street. If you go out to ride a bike with your friends, and a few cars to put there, do you guess who the passersby sees the car first? It must be the one who pretended to be an outer lean. Even if you are not the most richest, even if you are not the highest configuration, you seem to be the most played.
Although the externally skimming handle is the “practical upgrade” that improves control, the relatively weird appearance will definitely make the onlookers who are unknown. The car is pressed on the road, you are not sure to ride a fat snow car, then you know that you think about it with your foot heels. You must be the most eye -catching one. Being praise and slander must be accepted. People who are unknown will come forward and ask you. How can your car fall like this?
Don’t panic, tell him directly that this is the latest gameplay from the Europa continent. You ordinary people are not enough to do it, and it cannot be understood. Gravel’s gameplay also requires time and market training.
But if you think that if you change the exterior, you can only change the appearance, then it is really superficial. After all, the 30 -degree external skimming is not a furnishings. It can be moved for 7 cm in hand. Within the reasonable range of ergonomics, the handlebar and control ability are the conceptual relationship of “one inch, one -inch and strong”.
The racing mountain vehicle is basically about 68 cm, and the width of the traditional highway cars is about 38-44 cm, which means that the 42 cm discover is on both sides of the lower part of the handle. If you expand 6 cm, you can get the same control length as the mountain car. What is the concept of six centimeters? Basically, the width of the three fingers is very terrible. It can get the control experience of the almost mountain car on the basis of maintaining the basic form of the highway car. Essence
The length (width) of the handlebars is not the only criterion for measuring control. Another advantage is to have better ergonomics. I have been riding on the mountain car. I have been riding from high school to graduation from college. As long as the riding time is more than half an hour, my wrist will feel sour immediately. For a long time, the opponent’s palm and wrist joint will cause pressure. Very simple truth, standing in the military posture, your hands are naturally drooping, your palms must be close to your body, and your back is outward. When the handle is straightened, the hand needs to turn from the natural posture to the inside. Sour, this is why many mountain knights move after parking, that is, shake their wrists.
Discover’s exterior handle, because its 30 -degree external skimming can hold the handle in a more natural posture, and long -term cycling can reduce the burden on the wrist. If the hand is not sour, then the natural control is just fine.
In addition, compared with the traditional bending angle of the direction of the way, the outer bend can give you the direction of the front of the front from a larger angle and a longer force arm. The stronger support, why many drifting cars will make the wheel exaggerated, which is also the truth -give the body stronger support.
Three points from the appeal: “Absolute control length”, “ergonomic design”, and “stronger support” can be seen that Discover’s exterior skimming can significantly improve the vehicle’s control ability. Does it have no shortcomings?
Conventional highway bending
Gravel cars, which are literally, are gravel road models, which means that non -paved roads occupy most of the contents of cycling, but this does not mean that Gravel cars can only ride on non -paved pavement, just like many people buy Wrangler people. Similar to commuting, the Gravel car, most of the time, ride on the pavement road with intact road conditions. At this time, there will be some inconveniences of the outer skimming. For example The additional wind resistance, the wider handlebar affects the horizontal passability, and even more importantly. You need more space to park your vehicle. These are the inconvenience of replacing the exterior car handle. I don’t hide it. They are all written. In the end, I choose not to choose the exterior, and the decision right is naturally you.
For ordinary highway cars players, it is not necessary to replace the exterior skimming handle, but if you really want to get a stronger control feeling, you can choose a more than 12 degrees of insurance. For Gravel players, the more “true incense”, the larger the outside angle, the more fragrant, but before you replace it You can enjoy the fun brought by the improvement of handling.
The brand of PRO has already smelled keenly in 18 years
The development of Gravel and long -distance crossing has launched the Discover series, which specializes in related products suitable for Gravel and station wagon. Recently, Shimano has launched the GRX (RX810) series specially designed for highway off -road and Gravel, which also indicates that relatively conservative conservative conservatives The Blue Factory attaches great importance to this field (SRAM’s CX series indicates that you are late), followed by Shimano’s footsteps, PRO also enriched the Discover product line, and launched a detailed Products, seizing market segments, we look like fairy fights in our consumers.
However, in China, the disc brake highway is still not completely popular, let alone some updated gameplay such as Gravel, but there are always people to try new things. , Persist in what you insist, and believe that all you believe, one day, niche gameplay will be accepted and recognized by the world. At that time, I hope you still remember that there is a shared person who broke your heart here. There are a lot of words, loyal and honest LMH.
Same show: Pro Race Comfort Competition comfortable silicone handle
This time, the handlebar also changed this handle. The competition was comfortable with 3 cm wide, 3 mm thick, and two meters long. Compared with a certain brand, it was comfortable to look at it. It was very suitable for Gravel and long -distance use.
Put the lines of tunnels, the surface is relatively moist, it is a comfortable rubber feel, which is sticky.
The blocking is still the classic PRO, light, no reflection.
The collection stickers are too narrow! Negative Ratings.
The silicone back sticker is very real. Compared with a certain XX boutique silicone band, PRO is very kind whether it is workmanship to ingredients. The installation is also very simple. The thickness is extremely tough enough. Don’t worry about being pulled and deformed when installing. The glue will not leave the glue like the traditional double -sided glue. It is worth recommending.
