Lighter and lighter bendings, thinner and thinner thicknesses. As a consequence this kind of bendings are more flexible and professional are more flexible and professional and non-professional bikers do not like this.
A special technique, the so-called variable thickness technique (tapering), was used to manufacture body tubes and to make bendings stiffer. This process allows to get a bigger thickness of the more stressed parts and a thinner one of the others thanks to many drawing treatments.
In the middle part thickness is 1,5 mm. and it gradually becomes 1,3 mm. in the lateral part, while it is steadily 1,2 mm. in the bent portion where the handle is.
The result achieved in manufacturing "215" bendings is extraordinary mix of stiffness and lightness.
The use of anatomic bendings has been spreading for many years and has supplanted the bendings conceived by past champs. Neverthless the last ones had and have the advantage of an easier gripping of the brake lever, if necessary. The gripping of all anatomic bendings is more difficult in case of users with small hands and not so easy for the other ones.
DedaElementi has conceived an ANATOMIC version of any of its bendings with easier gripping thanks to a distance which is 13 mm. shorter than the one of all other bendings on the market.
