Unveiled during this month’s Berlin Bicycle Week (Berliner Fahrradschau), Lenkr showed off its new bespoke wooden handlebars to the delight of discerning urban cyclists.
Using a mix of wood and aluminum, each Lenkr is milled from a solid piece of walnut wood, supported by a high-quality aluminum core and the natural grain makes every piece a unique bike component.
Linker currently offers two models, a Type A and Type B.
The curved shaped ends are the distinguishing feature of the Type-A. With a diameter of 31.8mm, Type-A fits on any modern bike suspension and brings a timeless look to your fixed-gear, single speed or custom made bike. At just 285 grams, it’s a real lightweight and ensures a unique riding experience.
The wood grain lends a distinct character to your handlebar, which will subtly change over the years of use, making it even more unique.
Finished with a special varnish, the Type-A is robust and suitable for everyday cycling, while UV protection keeps them looking great even when exposed to the sun over longer periods of time.
With the same obsessive attention to detail that was put into Type-A, the Type-B with a more puristic approach. Type-B sets itself apart through a seamless connection between the wood and the aluminum. With a diameter of 25.4mm, Type-B fits on any classic bike suspension and brings a puristic, classic look to your fixed-gear, single speed or custom made bike. At just 160 grams, it’s a real lightweight and ensures a simple and minimalistic weight approach.
The same special varnish as on Type-A is used and ensures the classic look of a natural grain.
