Friends of GCN, give us in their new video of Youtube some tips for grip the handlebar correctly depending on the terrain in which it is rolled.
In this video they show us the different ways to grip the handlebar of the bike depending on the terrain where we are riding, the speed we are driving or the comfort we are looking for when riding.
The curve of the handlebar
It is one of the most aerodynamic positions that can be achieved, in addition you will have good control of the bike and the center of gravity is lower
It is ideal on descents and on quick steps around curves. You can also save energy if you go to "wheel" with a partner or Grupetta.
In addition, it is the ideal position for the Sprint.
Of the handles
Ideal for riding long distances since the back does not suffer so much. It is also ideal to stand up when climbing
Of the crosshead
It is used a lot on long climbs, since the back hardly suffers, you breathe better and the angle of the pedaling is more open so more power can be applied
In a long climb, it is best to change position so that the body does not fall asleep.
One important thing in all positions is that you have to grip the handlebars in a firm way to be prepared for the unexpected, but not too tight.
