Genetic, the house brand of UK based Ison Distribution have announced a pair of new adventure handlebars. ADVNTR have always been impressed with components we’ve tested from Genetic. Designed by folk that actually have a passion for gravel and adventure cycling doesn’t always have to cost the earth, the flared Driser 16 was a favourite.
The new Genetic STV, is an ergo, alloy road bar, that comes in five sizes from 360 to 440mm. The other bar is the Driser 4, a drop riser handlebar, that’s ideal for riders looking for a riser bar, but with a nominal flare, as opposed to the 16 degrees as on the Driser 16. This bar comes in four sizes 380 to 440mm.
