The OrthoCell® pads are placed under the handlebar tape where road cyclists have a firm grip. The comfort upgrade works in every drop bar grip position: on the tops of handlebar, on the brake/shift levers and in the drops.
The four-piece damping set is suitable for nearly all handlebars found on road, all-road and gravel bikes. The pads fit the vast majority of drop bar handlebar shapes and can be shortened individually. With their adhesive strips, they can be easily fixed under the handlebar tape without slipping.
The very lightweight pads are made of orthopedic OrthoCell® foam. The high-performance material, which is only 2.5 mm thick, meets the requirements of cycling and is manufactured in Germany.
The OrthoCell® high-end foam used outperforms all gel alternatives with its superior material properties, making it the first choice for road cyclists who want more comfort without sacrificing performance. Compared to gel, OrthoCell® is more durable, does not break down, is more lightweight and offers significantly better damping and pressure distribution.
The OrthoCell® pads flawlessly absorb shocks and vibrations during the ride. On rougher terrain, optimal damping is a decisive factor in preventing fatigue and discomfort in the hands and wrists, allowing you to put in the best possible performance for hours on end.
Another major advantage of OrthoCell® pads is their ideal pressure distribution. When cycling, the hands support a large part of the upper body weight on the handlebars. There is constantly high pressure on a small area, and the nerve pathways of the hands can become irritated as a result. OrthoCell® pads reduce this risk by distributing the pressure over as wide of an area as possible in every gripping position.
With the BT OrthoCell® Pad Set, Ergon offers all road cyclists an effective upgrade to noticeably increase grip comfort and prevent discomfort. Thanks to the outstanding material properties, performance remains unaffected.
