Schmolke Evo TLO Oversize Carbon Road Handlebar - 1k Carbon

TLO - The Lightest One!

For the Evo TLO handlebar just the high quality T1000 fibres are used. Their tensile strength is yet another 16 % higher than that of T800 which is manufactured at the SL roadbike bar. In addition to that the TLO laminates use yet a more difficult layer structure. The combination results in numerous world record weights without any compromises in reliability or stiffness. The manufacturer claims just 135 grams for the TLO at its lightest version with width of 420 mm.

With its drop and reach of 126 mm and 78 mm respectively, the Evo TLO roadbike handlebar is designed with ergonomics in mind for both the drop and the hood position. The evolvent curve of the side parts lets you find an aerodynamic but not too deep position on your bike. When riding on the hoods the nearly horizontal forward part of the drop makes for an unbroken line with the hoods.

The advantage of this oversized full carbon drop bar is its middle section’s larger diameter. This results in a considerably stiffer roadbar. In addition to that, its wide and flat top makes for an ergonomic and comfortable grip when riding with your hands on the tops. The flat section design is also more aerodynamic than the round-section version with its larger frontal area. In addition, the handlebar comes with recessed cable grooves on its underside following the proven design of the original Compact series. The drops effectively raise the brake hoods. With small hands in particular the levers are easier to reach.

Schmolke's TLO series is handmade to specifically suit your weight and riding style using the best carbon fibre prepeg available. This, together with a further refined layering plan with less layers, results in yet another reduction of weight. Prepregs (short for "preimpregnated") came immersed in a still wet plastic matrix which improves quality of the laminate combined with an even distribution of the resin.

Stems with 31.8 mm clamp diameter including those with four clamping bolts may be used. These thin walled carbon handlebars may be completed with Schmolke's custom made oversize carbon shifter clamps and carbon bar plugs.

Important notes:
Schmolke's handlebars as standard are not made to be used with triathlon or time trial bars. If this is desired, you should contact our customer service center. All Schmolke bars may be shortened at their ends by 10 mm.

Di2 ready:
TLO Evo and Compact models are also available with optional holes for Di2 internal wire routing (compatible for the Di2 BAR END junction box). The necessary strengthening will add some 8 g to the bar’s total weight.
