Whether you're recovering from a crash and are in need of a functioning bar or are just looking to freshen up your favorite bike, the FSA Extra Light Compact Handlebar is bound to add some kick and drop some grams off your ride. Made from high-modulus carbon fiber, this bar weighs in at a paltry 169g and features a compact drop for modern positioning and a comfortable stance. FSA utilizes a proprietary layup to ensure ample strength to endure the miles and adds a two-degree outward bend for extra comfort when digging for watts in the drops.

If you want to build up a lightweight bike, these are recommended. I bought a size 44cm and it came with a cool, signed tag that verified its weight at 178 grams. Pretty impressive. Upon install, I realized that the shape wasn't for me. The drop and reach were fine, but the ramp angle was too sharp and it prevented me from getting a flat bar-to-hood profile I was after with my SRAM Force Hydro levers. Maybe it would work better with Shimano or Campy hoods but I had a slight trough behind the hood so I ended up going back to the aluminum Zipp SL-70's I was running and even with the 70+ gram weight penalty, they are way comfier.
