Following Roval's recent foray into cockpit components with the launch of the Alpinist bar-stem combo, the American brand has today unveiled an all-new aero bar, known simply as the Rapide Handlebar. 

Roval takes full advantage of access to parent company Specialized's wind tunnel and works equally closely with pro riders. Over recent years, Roval has forged a reputation for making high-end wheels and obsessing about the details and, in many ways, the Rapide handlebar follows the same blueprint.

Josh hails from the Pacific Northwest of the United States but would prefer riding through the desert than the rain. He will happily talk for hours about the minutiae of cycling tech but also has an understanding that most people just want things to work. He is a road cyclist at heart and doesn't care much if those roads are paved, dirt, or digital. Although he rarely races, if you ask him to ride from sunrise to sunset the answer will be yes.
