Cyrano R1 Bull: Cyrano is fi’zi:k’s latest range of cockpit components, comprising handlebars, stems and seatposts. Handlebars are highly-stressed, safety-critical parts, making strength and fatigue resistance of paramount importance. Low weight is of course also a priority.
Cyrano handlebars are available in three models, according to material specification, and in three shapes to fit different rider physiques, as described by fi’z:k’s Spine Concept system. Each shape is carefully designed to give easy transitions between different riding positions – tops, hoods and drops. The range of nine fi’zi:k Cyrano handlebars models are each available in a choice of four widths, to ensure a perfect fit.
The Cyrano R1 is the medium specification, made from High-Modulus carbon fiber. HM carbon bars can be made just as strong as HMUD carbon bars, but, requiring more material, carries a minor weight penalty over the range-topping Cyrano 00 model. The result is exceptionally strong, and very light. The Cyrano R1 Bull accommodate for the least flexible Bulls riders who require a slightly more upright riding position for maximum comfort and efficiency. This is produced by reducing the reach (80mm) and introducing a still shallower drop (130mm).
They are available in four sizes, with the 420mm width weighing just 200g.
