With comfortable fit characteristics such as shorter reach, shallow drop, and a mellow backsweep, the Nouveau Randonneur Handlebar is optimally designed for long days and nights for riders using integrated shifters and aero brake levers.

The tops are ovalized and swept back ever so slightly from the stem clamp. This makes for a bigger area upon which your hands can rest. A wider palm base means road vibrations and impacts are distributed better and not centralized into a specific spot effectively reducing hand, wrist, and elbow fatigue. Additionally, the sweep lends itself better (than a straight top) to your hands' natural resting position. **Please note, inline levers cannot be installed on this bar, due to this ergonomic profile**

The ramps are 105mm in length (measured from the center of the bend to the edge of the ramp). This gives enough real estate for a full hand's worth of a position behind the hood for cruising, but short enough to easily reach the hood for shifting, braking, and out of the saddle efforts. Measuring traditionally (from the center of the stem clamp to the furthest edge of the brake lever hood mount) the reach is 85mm.

The 128mm worth of drop is casual and the 12 degree worth of flare makes for terrific cornering stability and prevents your forearms from hitting the bars during punchy efforts or obstacle negotiation.

The Nouveau Randonneur Bar is available in three sizes (measured center to center at the hood): 42, 44, and 46cm, two finishes: High-Polished Silver and Smooth Noir, and accepts standard road components such as integrated shifters, aero brake levers, and bar-end shifters.

  • Widths (measured center-to-center at the hoods): 42, 44, 46cm
  • Backsweep: 5 degrees
  • Ramp length: 105mm
  • Traditional reach: 85mm
  • Drop: 128mm
  • Stem clamp diameter: 31.8mm
  • Brake lever clamp diameter: 23.8mm
  • Weight (44cm): 301g

*not compatible with SRAM 10 speed Hydro levers due to the shifter's clamp design. Works fine with everything else including SRAM cable actuated brake levers.

Great bar

I upgraded my old road bar to this and it’s way more comfortable

Relieved riding posn.

Installed along with VO 70mm stem on my Colnago Master. I like the slight sweep back and increase in grip diameter. Terrific workmanship on all VO metals and fast reliable shipping. Thanks again VO.

Nearly perfect for me

It's subtle but when going back to other bars I really miss the shape of the tops.

I only wish there was a version with just a little more flare and maybe a looser curve.

I'm nitpicking.

Nouveau Randonneur Handlebar #2

About 7 years ago, I changed my handlebar on my old 2009 Giant Defy for a Nouveau Randonneur. It immediately felt like it had been a custom fit design just for me. Moving away from the Defy road bike to a Poseidon “X” three years ago, last year later, after relegating my Giant to the trainer, I swapped the stock handlebars for the Nouveau Randonneur. Again, back to that custom feel. So this year, I bought another Nouveau Randoneur for my Poseidon Redwood gravel bike and despite where everyone says about the need for a wide/flared handlebar for gravel, I’ll stick with that customized feeling and comfort that the 42mm Nouveau Randonneur every time I get on the bike.
