Hed’s Vantage 8 name comes from its eight-axis positional adjustment, making this bar a smart option for riders with ‘princess and pea’ tendencies.
Boasting a broad profile, the wings are joined with a conventional single-tube, oversized centre-stem clamp section. Longer, dead straight tubular horns sit on the tips ready to plug in whatever brakes you want. They’re also slotted/drilled for internal routing of the brake cables.
Basing the clamping hardware on the tubular section does allow separate angling of each extension, but it restricts outwards spread. The carbon pad holders can be moved through various position options, though, and the mounts flip up to give you a tad more wing bar hand space on long climbs.
Reducing extension reach means reaching for the saw, although again, straight or replacement extensions are available. There’s a big range of height stackers and other accessory mounts to fine-tune your cockpit set-up, too.
