Get in the drops when you’re going downhill fast and want maximum control.
If you’ve been riding your bike for any length of time, you’ve figured out there are three places to hold your bars: the hoods, drops and tops.

Our friends at the Global Cycling Network put together this insightful video to help you better understand hand and body positioning. Have a look to see which position is most aero, best for descending, and gives you the most control of your bike.
