Do a stiff neck and bad back pain slow you down on extensive gravel tours and road rides? For long-term, pain-free riding pleasure, it’s worth taking a good look at your bike’s ergonomics. The saddle and steering angle can be adjusted in just a few simple steps, but components can also be replaced. For this, there are handlebars with more flare, saddles with pressure relief cut-outs and shock absorbing handlebar tape. CONTEC offers you a wide range of parts to change out. Even small changes can be a godsend – put your optimal riding position to the test.
Sitting on your road bike, it's all about speed. You regularly aim for a new best time for your training route, and you don't want to hit the finish line at a snail's pace in the race either. To ensure as little drag as possible, you sit stretched out and as flat as possible on your saddle. The result: Most of your body weight is on your pubic area, and you may experience unpleasant tingling and numbness. A special road saddle with a recess in the centre can help to reduce the pressure. The saddle should also be narrow and long, so that you can pedal efficiently on long rides.
SADDLE "NEO SPORT ZX DYNAMIC REFLEX"
Our "Neo Sport ZX Dynamic Reflex" is perfectly suited for challenging routes with road and mountain bikes. Selected materials ensure a reliably high level of seating comfort.
Handlebars and grips
Pain in the neck, back and shoulder area are unsightly side effects of long tours and extensive training rides. In order to relieve these areas with a wider grip, there are specific handlebars with more flare. A flatter drop, a shorter reach and a wide flat area on the tops also increase the level of ergonomics. In addition to this, padded handlebar tape soaks up hits and vibrations from rough surfaces and terrain. Individual pain demands individual solutions – you just have to try them out.
HANDLEBAR TAPE "DMND 2K"
Comfort is the focus, especially on longer rides and challenging routes. With our "DMND 2K” handlebar tape you can customise your bike in a variety of ways.
Chain grinding, cables snapped, sprocket worn down – if the parts are past care and maintenance, new ones are needed. Moisture, dirt and many hard kilometres are reasons for natural wear and tear. With a little patience, you can easily replace some parts yourself: From chains to brake pads to individual sprockets and shift cables, we have everything you need. Also practical: Our tools and various multi-tools can help you get your bike back on track.
The chain is the heart of your bike’s drivetrain and is subject to constant forces. If moisture and dirt are added – which is always the case on any ride – the strain increases. If you need a new part, we will have adequate replacement from our "Race" line. The assortment includes a variety of chains that are hardened with a special coating to meet the demands of your road bike. Everything you need for better performance and weight optimisation is available in our chains for 9, 10 and 11-speed drivetrains.
Brake pads are the most important of all wear parts, because they contribute to your safety on the road. It is important to regularly check whether there is enough pad left. If you find that you need new brake pads, we are happy to help. Whether you're riding a bike with a rim brake or with hydraulic disc brakes, or you're looking for organic or metallic pads, maybe a medium-hard rubber compound or do you need our special 3D compound? We always have the right thing for you in our assortment.
Ergonomics, spare parts – all well and good. But what is a bike without suitable accessories? How do you want to get to work safely every day on your gravel bike without a helmet and lights? Or how do you want to pack your things for an overnighter on the weekend? Not to mention an unexpected flat. How lucky you are to have us – we offer a colourful selection of helmets, clever lighting systems, practical and stylish bikepacking bags and pumps that fit in a jersey pocket.
