27.0 Clamping range incl. sleeve for 31.8 stems. The smaller diameter improves the flexing properties of the handlebar. The sleeve - made of aluminium - ensures an optimum fit and prevents the stem from notching. This simple trick makes the handlebars more durable and stable in the long run. The 16° backsweep ensures a straight transition from forearm to hand, which is especially important for handlebar widths from 700 mm. The 10 mm stretch to the front almost compensates the shortening caused by the 16° bend. The 5° up sweep brings the elbows into an optimal driving dynamic position. The best material, carefully and precisely bent and processed, make the SQlab 311 one of the highest quality handlebars on the market. The handlebar is not approved for use in bike parks and downhill. The bend of the 311 is largely Moto Cross Sport, with similarly high backsweep and upsweep. Only if the ergonomics fit 100%, maximum speed with a correspondingly high load for the body is possible in the long run.
