Handsewn Leather Grip in Norway
The leather is cut to fit and handsewn in our factory building in Skien, Norway. The handlebar pictured here is one of the prototypes made there for testing the fit, finish and feel. Cork padded leather is the material we are using. Sewn together with a matching high quality Serafil thread. The cork is from Portugal and makes the leather extra strong and also adds a nice padding.
Handlebar Leather is Matching the Leather Saddle
The naturally colored handlebar leather on the classic road bike Speed TEN is matching the leather city bike saddle and custom-made for Speed bikes by Tabor Saddles. Details matter in product design. The matching leather makes the saddle and handlebar a perfect pair.
Perfect Framing for Paul Components Brake Levers
The beautiful soft leather on the classic road bike handlebars for Speed TEN is the perfect framing for the Paul Components brake levers. These high-end brakes are a piece of jewelry and a perfect fit for the concept of a classic road bike re-imagined named Speed TEN. These Nitto handlebars have never looked this good - in our opinion.
