ERGONOMICS AND BIOMECHANICS
HAND POSITIONSOrnix bars allow you to hold a multitude of hand positions - at the drops the bars are 375mm wide with a long flattened position for sprinting with your hands parallel to the ground.
There is a serious advantage from upgrading to Ornix bars, not only from a standard round handlebar but also other aero road handlebars. See our aero data below comparing different handlebars:
Ornix bars are designed to work with electronic gear, mechanical gear/brake and hydraulic brake cable systems. There are three exit holes on the rear of the bars, two either side of the stem for non internally routed stems and one larger stem hole for integrated systems. Ornix bars use a standard 31.8mm stem clamp.
A tilt adjustable, removable computer mount can be purchased along with a set of Ornix bars. There are options for Garmin or Wahoo, along with a separate adapter using an action camera mount for your camera or front light.
BIKE FIT CONSIDERATIONS
Please check the geometry of the Ornix bars carefully below. Reach is increased due to the narrow location of the hood clamps, however if you currently use a narrow hoods position you may wish to reduce your stem length by ~10mm, depending on your current handlebar reach.
Ornix bars are fully UCI legal.
