The 16° backsweep on the 311 MTB Handlebar provides a natural transition from lower arm to the hand. This is especially important with handlebars of width greater than 700 mm. The 10mm forward reach almost make up for the reduced reach which the higher sweep provides. The 5° upsweep bring the elbows into a perfect position for a dynamic riding style.
Only the best in materials are used. Careful and precise bending and manufacturing processes make the SQlab 311 one of the most advanced handlebars on the market.
The backsweep largely stems from the motocross arena where a similar backsweep and upsweep is custom. Only if the ergonomics are 100% perfect, you can ride at maximum pace and your body endure the associated high strain in the long run.
This bar utilizes a 31.8mm clamping area. If you have a 35mm stem, please refer to our shim kit. Item No. 2384
