More and more, riders are adding a T-bar to their saddle for nearly every riding style, from road riding to cross-country and downhill. For road riders, using an extended T-bar handle reduces front saddle pressure and provides a comfortable, bike-like riding stance. Offroad, using a shorter T-bar handle similarly reduces front saddle pressure, increases maneuvering control, and gives an ergonomic gripping position for longer rides.
The T-bar features adjustable height, length and bar-end angle to optimize fit according to rider preference. It also allows the brake lever to be positioned either between the bar ends or along the handle shaft. The narrow, single shaft will never interfere with pedalling.
The KH T-Bar 2017 comes with T-bar Handle Distance (bent T-handle model for extended handle positions) and T-bar Handle Muni (straight T-handle model for installation close to the saddle). Also the reinforcement plate comes with an extra hole for the KH One saddle.
The Distance T-bar features a 400 x 155 mm T-handle with a 30º bend, and grippy, ergonomic bar ends. We recommend this model for longer handle extensions and less technical riding. The Distance T-handle can be installed in combination with the plastic handle for all KH saddles. The bent handle shaft increases the range of possible handle angles and adds knuckle clearance between the plastic saddle handle and T-handle.
The Muni T-bar features a straight, 300 x 120 mm T-handle. The grippy bar ends position your fingers to straddle the "T" for a more secure hand position for pulling. We recommend this model for shorter handle extensions and more technical riding. The Muni T-bar should be used in combination with the plastic saddle handle for curved Fusion saddles (Freeride, Street, Slim). It should replace the plastic handle on the Fusion Zero saddle
