This feathery 215-gram carbon bar is slightly flattened on the tops and has gentle and shallow ergonomic bends for optimal comfort in all riding positions. There are also double cable grooves on the underside and integrated tape plugs to keep things clean.

Which Reach and Drop you prefer depends on your hand size, arm length and riding style. If you like what you're riding, simply match it as closely as possible. In general, deeper drops and longer reaches are appropriate for riders with long arms and large hands while narrow drops and short reaches fit smaller riders. Handlebar Width is related to shoulder width. Riders usually prefer a handlebar width equal to the measurement between their shoulder blades, or slightly wider if they climb a lot or ride fast and hard.
