Classifications and Functions of the Bicycle Brake Lever

The handlebar of a bicycle is one of the main components of bicycle control. It is mainly composed of a handlebar, a stem, and a handlebar cover or a handlebar. Sometimes an auxiliary handle is added according to actual needs. Choosing the right bicycle handlebar can make riding more comfortable and make the bicycle easier to control.

According to the material classification, there are steel tube handlebars, aluminum alloy tube handlebars, titanium alloy tube handlebars, carbon fiber and composite handlebars. The current international standard handlebar lengths are usually 560mm, 580mm, 610mm, 640mm, 680mm. At present, there are four types of bicycle brake levers, namely, straight handlebars, wild goose handlebars, curved handlebars and butterfly handlebars. Inquiry for more bicycle brake lever types.

The characteristic of the straight handlebar is that the handlebar distance is short, the handling is more flexible, and the weight is light. The general distance is between 560-580mm. If it is fitted with the vice handle, it is very convenient when the standing pedaling cradle is accelerating. The only disadvantage is that due to the length of the bike brake lever the angle of operation is not very large. Straight handles are usually used on off-road vehicles.

The shape of the goose handle is very much like the spread of the wings of a big goose. The characteristics of the goose handle are long distance, thick pipe diameter, frequent use of cold drawn reducing pipe technology, and complicated processing and heat treatment technology. The goose handle has a variety of curvatures for hobbyists to choose from, and its comfort level is higher than that of a straight handle. However, due to the large diameter of the goose handle, its weight is slightly higher than that of the straight handle. The cushioning of the handlebars has been greatly improved, and it is usually used on some types of cars with more intense sports, such as DS (double slewing), DH (downhill) cars. Generally used lengths are above 640mm, but some goose handles with a length of 610mm are also used on mountain off-road vehicles.

Handlebars are mainly used for handlebars on road bikes, and the measuring method is also different from normal mountain handlebar length measurement. The distance between the left and right centers of the end of the bicycle brake lever parts is the length of the handlebar. Generally speaking, there are several common specifications of 40mm, 42mm and 44mm. Some sports cars also have special handlebars with weird shapes, such as the handlebars on the personal time trial. This kind of handlebar has greater limitations, and is generally used for professional competitions.

A butterfly handlebar is a handlebar that looks very much like a butterfly with its wings spread. This kind of handlebar is often used on long-distance touring bicycles. Due to the wide overall range of the handlebars and the various angles of the handlebars, the rider can change to different postures to prevent sports injuries when riding with a heavy load. The butterfly bar has become the first choice for touring bicycles due to its good handling.
