If you observe major cycling races like the Tourde France, you will surely see that this is the position that many riders use to be able to run at the highest speed. People often call this position the kinematic position that offers the most advantages and reduces wind resistance. The most common grip position of the goat horn handlebars is in the lower curved part of the handle.
When placing the hands in this position, the arms are folded and closed to reduce wind resistance, the back is deeply bowed, making the car can rush at high speed. Suitable for long-distance travel, when athletes want to accelerate to overtake opponents or in many other unexpected situations. This hand position gives you two benefits: high speed and easy brake control to ensure the absolute safest and easiest to handle on the go.
