- Technical Details
The Tern Physis has quickly built a reputation as the stiffest folding handlepost on the market, but the Physis 3D takes it up a notch with 3D forging technology. That makes a Physis 3D T-Bar handlepost one of the best upgrades for your bike.
Here’s why you should upgrade:
Upgrading your handlepost lets you customize your ride by change of the height and angle of the handlepost. Choose between heights of 290 mm and 350 mm and 6° and 12° of angle.
The Tern Physis 3D T-Bar handlepost is compatible with the Andros Stem and Syntace VRO 47 stems – not to mention the terrific Valo lights. The Andros Stem and Syntace VRO 47 give you unmatched flexibility to adjust your riding position and the Tern Valo 2 is the best integrated light system going.
If you already have a Physis 2D T-bar handlepost, switching to a Physis 3D will give you even more stifness.
About Handlepost Height and Angle
Use handlepost height to tailor your ride. A taller handlepost will give you a more upright riding position and is recommended for taller riders. A shorter handlepost lets you create a more aggressive riding position for going fast.
The angle of the handlepost refers to the degrees from the angle of the steer tube. A 12° handlepost elongates the cockpit by moving the bars further away. A 6° angle keeps the bars closer.
About the Physis 3D Handlepost
The Physis 3D is forged from a single piece of aluminum. Only a small handful of factories around the world can 3D forge such a complicated, large piece. Welds are eliminated and material distribution optimized for strength. The result is a handlepost that is 2 1/2 times as strong as the original benchmark on rigorous EN tests.
Note: The Physis 3D handlepost should be used only with the original Syntace VRO 47 or the Tern Andros as well as the Kinetix Pro and Pro X Handlebars. If you want to install a different stem or handlebar, please consult with an authorized Tern dealer.
