Over 10 years of physiological studies

The origins: Pascal Badollet

Pascal Badolet is a physiotherapist, he lives and works in Geneva, Switzerland, and he is very passionate about sports, especially cycling. In 2007, after a long ride with his MTB he experienced wrists and back pain. During his job, he noticed that many cyclists complained about the same issue after their training sessions, also noticing that many of them changed very often their hand’s positions on the handlebars. From this intuition the idea of creating a new concept of handles bar that really helps cyclists in a more ergonomics and innovative way. Our mission is to correct your position ensuring the best ergonomics and safety in a way never experienced before
