In the never ending search for more speed via optimised Aerodynamics, CHAPTER2 introduces the Mana which means “power” in Maori.
The Integrated Bar + Stem combo allows air to flow over it smoothly, creating a seamless and elegant cockpit made 100% from TORAY® Carbon and tested to EN ISO 4210:2014. The careful use of specific carbon lay-ups made in Japan creates just the right blend of stiffness for accurate and predictable steering yet enough “give” to take the sting out of any uneven road surfaces.
Whilst other manufacturers have opted to pair their Bar and Stem combo to a specific model of frame, we have taken a more inclusive approach, designing the Mana to not only work fluidly with the RERE but also with the TERE and any other road frame employing a 1-1/8” fork steerer tube.
In order to give you the flexibility to use the Mana with CHAPTER2 frames and other road frames, we purposely opted to create a more user/travel friendly cable routing method which your local bike shop/mechanic will undoubtedly thank you for.
The Mana is available in 5 size combinations so that you can dial in your desired position with effective stem lengths from 80-120mm and widths from 400-440mm.
Finally, with the adoption of trigger happy electronic shifting and use of out-front GPS devices for those Strava® moments, the CHAPTER2 Bar + Stem combo comes ready to install Shimano® EW-RS910 bar end mounted Junction Box and Barfly® or K-Edge style GPS mounts respectively.
About The Brand
CHAPTER2 is a performance bike brand, designed in New Zealand by Mike Pryde. The quest to create something unique follows a road less travelled. At CHAPTER2 it begins with the perfect frame before handing it over to you to put all the pieces in place.
Mike is meticulous with his designs and quality control to ensure that his creations matched his stringent performance and quality standards and this is reflected in the AO, HURU, RERE, TERE & TOA. This is where the story of CHAPTER2 really starts.
