Iconic Italian component company Deda is joining the Gravel boom. Based on the popular Zero100 road handlebar, the Gravel100 handlebar features a triple butted 7075 alloy construction and 12-degree flare at the drops for claimed greater stability. The short-reach shape is based on Deda’s RHM (“Rapid Hand Movement”) compact handlebar shape.
The top of the bar features a slightly aero top, done more for comfort than aerodynamics. The Gravel100 handlebar offers a 75mm reach and 130mm drop to accompany the 12-degree drop flare. Claimed at 260g for a 42cm width, the bar is also available in 40, 44 and 46cm widths.
Pricing is to be confirmed.
