The vice-handle was originally mainly used for mountain bikes and was installed at both ends of the straight handlebar of the mountain bike.

The role of the vice bar: First, it allows more posture and posture angles during riding, second, it is more convenient to pull the bike when climbing, and third is to play a certain protective role in the event of an accidental crash. The installation angle of the vice bar varies from person to person, but it is usually the angle at which the bar end is tilted forward.

Small-wheel folding bikes are similar to mountain bikes in many aspects, and the above reasons for installing the auxiliary handles are also applicable, and for small-wheel folding bicycles, installing auxiliary handles is more necessary. In fact, it's not just for "good-looking" or "looks more sporty", this is just a secondary aspect.

The main reason: After installing the vice handle, it is equivalent to an extra handle position at both ends of the handlebar, which improves the controllability; secondly, it is also related to the controllability, which is due to the need of folding, the small wheel is folded Vehicles usually do not have a forward-stretching stem like road bikes or mountain bikes. The handlebar and the riser are on the same plane. This kind of handlebar structure also has a considerable impact on riding control. Usually many people are just starting out. When riding this kind of bike, you will feel poor stability, the bike feels a bit fluttering and difficult to control when riding, it is actually related to the handlebar! After installing the vice-handle and holding it in the position of the vice-handle, the handling of the car has been greatly improved. When the vehicle is shaken in a standing position, the grip of the vice-handle will feel more smooth and free.
This is especially important in long-distance riding due to the additional position of the auxiliary handlebar, because the small-wheel folding bike adopts the straight handlebar of the mountain bike, and it is impossible to change different handlebars like a road bike with a curved handlebar during riding. Position to change the body posture, adjust and move the center of gravity, maintain the same posture for a long time riding, it is very easy to quickly fatigue the waist, back, shoulders, arms and other parts of the body. After installing the vice, you can ride at any time Change the position and adjust the riding posture in time to relieve fatigue.
Install the vice handle, not to mention the role of climbing, which is similar to mountain bikes and road bikes-all hill-climbing vehicles usually use wider handlebars, which are easier to breathe and easier to exert force.
