For shoulder pain...

I've used it several times

I was riding on 44 cm bars for years and was having shoulder pain after 3 hour rides. So i made the change to the FSA 40 cm bars after reading about this issue. They have worked out great for me just needed a longer stem due to shorter reach then my previous bars. One thing to note , at the hoods these measure more like 38 cm. Was not a problem since i just turned out the hoods 1 cm, would be nice if they had measurement lines to place the brake levers easier. The bottom of drops are about 42 cm , very comfortable.

Nice Handlebar

I've put it through the wringer

I picked this up for my cross bike and like it. It's stiff, light and I like the drop. Good purchase.

Just About Perfect

I've used it several times

I really like the shape and drop of these bars. I would like to see a 70mm reach option, and setting lines for left and right lever placement would simplify setup.

Great Value

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

As far a as bars go, these are a very good design, you can't go wrong with these compact drops. They offer many grip positions when paired with hoods and I like that the ends of the bars are long enough for those of us with long torsos to utilize a sprint position with a long stem.

Great Bar!

I've put it through the wringer

This bar is perfect! Would I love a carbon bar? Sure, but for 10 grams less, quadruple the price and to snap it in a crash? No thanks. The shallow drop is great and comfortable and gives me perfect angle for sprints. Can't go wrong here!


I currently have these bars; they were my first competition level bar from years ago. I've since gone thru several top-shelf carbon bars, but came back to these because they offer the best hand / level position for me. My question is: Which of FSA's carbon bars has the same bend / configuration? I GREATLY prefer the damping characteristics of carbon, vs double-wrapping alloy bars.

Hey Sam! The SL-K carbon bar has the exact same dimensions as the Omega. Go check it out!


Is the Drop and Reach swapped by accident in this description? (seems like it should be 125 / 80 respectively, not vice versa)
