Control Curve Technology

 

Do you experience numb hands, sore wrists, and want to enjoy longer rides?

The Control Curve gives you minimal bulk and maximum control

The muscles most commonly compromised in patients with Cyclist’s Palsy are the First Dorsal Interossei (FDI) and the hypothenar muscles, which are located between the thumb and index finger, and at the inside of the hand, respectively. 

The reason for the above symptoms is simple.  While cycling, the position of the hands over the handlebars places pressure on the ulnar nerve within Guyon’s canal. This pressure combined with vibrations from the road or trails is enough to damage the nerve and cause what is called a neuropraxia.  A neuropraxia is a focal injury to a nerve that does not allow for conduction of a nerve impulse past the site of injury.  A loss of the protective nerve coating at the site of injury (demyelination) inhibits the nerve signal and the muscles beyond that point get weak. 

Tips to avoid placing excess stress on the Ulnar nerve:

" Select a proper choice of handlebar. The type of handlebar can also affect the amount of pressure you place through your wrists. 

" Avoid direct pressure over the area of Guyons canal by distributing your weight evenly across your hands on the handlebars.
