Jones H-Bar Cut
These bars look unconventional but their increased sweep and multiple hand positions provide better handling and more comfort than a traditional bar. Improved hand and body positions provide more power, comfort and control. Made from butted Aluminium, they have a 31.8mm clamp size and 22.2mm control & grip diameter.

The Jones Cut H-Bar has a 45deg sweep and 12cm grip area. It has the same shape as the Loop Bar, but with the front section of bar cut out. Whilst this reduces the hand positions and bag/accessory carrying options some people prefer the (slightly more) conventional look and it does allow (non-hinged) shifters and levers to go in front of the cross bar if that is what you want.
With the levers in the optimum position the rider is superbly placed for fast riding while still enjoying all the hand positions available. The rearward extensions allow extra leverage and a wider hand position – be it for comfort or power. The tubing is tapered and butted to add strength and save weight.
710 Cut H-bars have trim marks (if you wish to cut them down to 660mm) and stem centering guides.

BETTER HANDLING AND POWER OUTPUT
The shape of the bar really allows you to throw the bike around in technical situations. With your hands in the wide and rearward grip position you can keep your weight back and your arm stance wide for stable and controlled technical or steep downhill riding.
This position is just like having a wide bar with a short stem, similar to a downhill or dirt jumping bike, but with more sweep. This additional sweep brings your arms in closer to your side to allow more comfortable and natural use of your arm and back muscles. The sweep also allows you to push and swing the bike side to side with more control and power. It’s especially beneficial when climbing.
These bars allow you to really get up on top of the pedals and grind out low cadence standing power for climbing in hard gears which is why the bar is so popular with single speeders. Your hands pull more towards your shoulders, a more natural ‘pull’ with stronger muscles. This allows you to push down with more force at the pedal. In extremely tight turns with the bar close to 90 degrees your outside arm and wrist is not taken to the edge of their flexible range as with traditional bars. This provides more control and stability on switch backs.
MORE COMFORTABLE AND ERGONOMIC
The sweep matches your natural hand and wrist positions creating a stronger hand and body position. With an H-Bar, your weight is evenly distributed across the width of your hand instead of being focused at the out side edge of your hand, the main cause of finger numbness. This ‘even grip pressure’ on the bar allows a better, more secure grip on the bar.
This is especially nice if you chose to ride a fully rigid bike. The many and varied hand positions greatly reduce hand numbness and wrist pain. The H-Bar also reduces back pain since it has a range of hand positions from rear to front. This range allows you to move around and stretch your back. This is a bar you can ride all day.
