Modolo X-boost shares the original “Curvissima” shape used in the KX handlebar, made of lightweight aluminium 6061is a classic Modolo handlebar now reissued also in silver finish to best match vintage bicycles .
The height of the bend (drop) is greater at 145mm. The depth (reach) is also bigger, at 102mm. The X-BOOST, has the upper angle of 16°, so that the hand position on the levers is straight, offering great comfort.
In the Modolo X-boost we use the “shot peening” process, first introduced by Modolo in 1990. In this process the bombardment of the metallic surface with calibrated ceramic spheres produces a relaxation of the surface tensions and an overall increase of the mechanical properties of the material of more than 30%.
