Some cyclists are more hardcore than others, braving busy streets and even the icy season. These X-ing Handlebars are intended for those with no qualms about getting around on their exposed two-wheelers, in even the most extreme climatic conditions.
Kyung Han Yoon, Jin Won Heo, Da Som Kim and Sung Jin Lim designed these innovative concept handgrips that could be installed independently on most bike frames. On the two ends, the handles have been conceived with a crisscrossing mesh that increases grip and provides a gap between one's skin and the yellow cylinder of the core.
This increases ventilation in the hotter summer months so that sweaty palms don't lead to slipping. In the winter, the webbing of the X-ing Handlebars become heated to warm your vulnerable fingers. These are powered by built-in solar panels that also power a digital speedometer display.
