Blinding me with science!
Listen in! THE GRAVEL RIDE PODCAST by Craig Dalton — This episode tells a great story of fit, and science behind Wave bar, with former Olympian Colby Pearce and Rick Sutton, COO of Coefficient Cycling.
“As a former pro cyclist, I appreciate how subtle changes in position can maximize efficiency and performance. The Wave Handlebar relaxes my trapezius (neck) and pectorals (upper chest) muscles and allows me to put more power into pedaling, especially on long climbs. And my elbows naturally rotate closer to my body, to a more aerodynamic position. At the end of long rides, with fewer muscles held in tension for hours, I feel less fatigued.”

"Good feel when pulling on them when climbing seated; for sure less 'deadness' felt in arms/shoulders; great extra comfort when on the tops.”

Skeptic to Surprised
"To my surprise (I’m skeptical) they really make a difference to my comfort level ! I ride in pain; the pleasure is greater, so I continue to ride. The pain is relieved, however, with these new bars, especially if I don’t have to think about gear changes. Going up La Ganga, there’s a lot of steady climbing, so I’m in one gear. It’s the same going down. At those times I can comfortably stay on the tops(?) in a position that’s different to being on the hoods and I have less neck and shoulder pain. Woohoo!
Oh, and another thing, I feel in control on the tops. I never did with the other handlebars. Clearly, I had tops then too but I always felt the bike was wobbly when I held on to them, especially going downhill.
I was tired yesterday before I even started out and yet I had a slew of PRs. I was very surprised. The bars? The disc brake not rubbing? A combination of the two? Whatever, I’m happy! 😃
Moltes moltes gràcies!!"
"I'm not going back to "normal" bars. Everything is right about the Wave."

"...I quickly noticed a big change when riding in the drops along a stony towpath. This bar has the most effective vibration isolation of any that I've used..."
"After 3 months, I still appreciate how much better it rides. Every. Single. Ride. I used to spend 80% of my time on the hoods, now it’s like 50% on the tops and 40% on the hoods. Narrow is aero, and the Wave bars pocket my elbows naturally at my sides, not like chicken wings in the wind.”

“I love the Wave bar! The slope and sweep really allows the wrists and shoulders to sit more naturally. This, in turn, is improving my breathing and position on the bike..”

"I have been amazed by how good the tops feel! The thumb notch in the drops is also a game-changer in sprints and on dirt descents. You are definitely on to something really good here!"
