Rene Herse Maes Parallel 25.4 Ø Handlebars


One of the most comfortable and beautiful handlebars ever made. Based on classic racing handlebars from the days when stages were long, with periods of easy spinning interrupted by fast-paced attacks and chases – just like many modern weekend rides.

The long, flat ramps give you room to roam. Put your hands near the back for an upright position during easier efforts. Slide forward when it’s time to “put down the hammer”. Ramps and drops are parallel, which makes for a very elegant handlebar and gives you room in the drops to move around – great for those days when you are facing headwinds.

25.4 mm clamp. Also available with 31.8 mm clamp diameter. For 26.0 mm clamp diameter stems, use the Nitto Handlebar Shim.

Handlebar widths are ‘center-center’.

Polished aluminum finish. Made in Japan. 5 year warranty.
