"The Cyclologic 'SWOPED' handlebar research project will unpack all the science behind why Coefficient's sweep + slope design are revelatory for our test riders and the burgeoning Wave community. We are highly impressed by Coefficient’s focus on validation and interest in Cycling Science and their thirst for truth rather than marketing hyperbole.
"We are in the process of studying this new cockpit ecosystem in our MOTIONMETRIQ lab. Coefficient Cycling leadership has given us a clear design brief on the underlying neuromuscular reasons driving the rider feedback already received. We are looking forward to providing our findings as we progress through controlled, science-based rider testing. There’s more to learn about the Wave bar and why it improves rider comfort and performance. We are rolling up our sleeves with the Coefficient team to get answers and drive future innovation.”

"The Coefficient AR and the upcoming RR handlebars are redefining the biomechanical interaction with the front end of a bicycle. In addition, the preliminary aero and ventilatory data that we have gathered demonstrate improved aerodynamics, frontal area, comfort, and breathing mechanics."
How & Why 'SWOPED' Handlebars Work
”Has anyone mentioned climbing better, breathing easier and feeling fresher on the bike?”
2015 Dirty Kanza Champion
Feeling good on a bike is important.
After dozens of glowing athlete endorsements and tech editor reviews from the likes of Ian Boswell, Yuri Hauswald, CyclingTips and RKP consensus is: Wave bars are feel good handlebars.
Science and substance matter too.
Especially for Coefficient as we bend traditional handlebar theory in support of cyclists' ongoing search for improved comfort and performance.
As you'll read in Paraic's memo, preliminary testing results are impressive. Cyclologic's Research Project will measure a variety of performance influencers including metabolic and respiratory efficiency, rider stability, aerodynamics and more.
Results will be shared on this Coefficient Science page throughout the year, with the next batch of data due in January 2021.
