One of the things that most attracted me to this bike is the handlebars. They're Easton EA30, 31.8 size, multi-shaped. The oversized diameter permits the bars to be ovalized in ways that greatly add to the comfort. It may look as if this is about aerodynamics, but it's really about the comfort. The upper section of the bar is flattened out so as to provide a considerably greater surface contact area with the rider's hands. This greatly reduces the pressure on the hands, makes a big difference in hand/wrist comfort.
