The Soma Gullwing was designed to be the most natural way to adapt a road bike to flat bars while still retaining your integrated road shift/brake levers.
The bar has a 30mm rise and 25ª backsweep. Harder to see in photos is the 7° drop at the grips which suits a semi-aggressive ride position and puts your wrists in a better angle to operate the levers. The curve for the backsweep also creates the ideal amount of brake lever travel for road levers.
The brake lever hoods can be used as a secondary place to rest your hands and to get more aero. Hood position feels similar to a 38cm road bar, which is fine, since this is not the primary hand position.
Grip section is 22.2mm OD, so you can either run MTB grips or bar tape.
Straight section near the clamp is 110mm wide, which gives some room for accessories or possibly aero bars.
