Clean and uncluttered, the new Syncros Creston iC SL cockpit allows you to route all the cables completely internally through the bar, headset and ultimately into the frame (compatible frames only). The new design is mechanic friendly, efficient and works with any shifting system to offer enormous flexibility for the end user. The integrated stem cap results in no bolts being visible on the stem at all; the cover is magnetic and keeps everything hidden.
Carbon construction is at the heart of Syncros and Creston iC SL’s unique shape is optimized for this with smooth transitions and no sharp edges, especially at the transition point where a stem and handlebar would normally meet. Through careful attention to the carbon fiber layup, design and geometry Syncros’ achieved a 26% improvement in sprinting stiffness yet also a 27% increase in compliance (shock absorption). Key to these numbers is in the application of High Modulus carbon fibers in key spots.
Syncros worked with their biomechanical and ergonomics partner Gebiomized to optimize the shape of the bars to work for 5 different hand sizes through pressure mapping technology. The tops feature an oval shape to cancel pressure points and the drops have a slight flare out for better ergonomics, and the hoods have a smooth transition and palm support. Sparing no attention to detail, the tops feature 3D graphics on top of the clear coat which offers superior grip without the need for bartape. Depending on personal preference and for those with larger hands, you can also use bar tape on the tops.
