Talon Ultra 1K Handlebar/Stem
While we think exceptional steed can be built up from a slew of cherry-picked components, there's something to be said for components that are purpose built for specific steeds. Instead of a barrage of components tossed on without much reason, proprietary components lend themselves to seamless integration, and its only natural that Pinarello would marry a steed like the F12 with the Most Talon Ultra 1K Handlebar/Stem combo to elevate the ride's aerodynamic properties, and strength. Most crafts the Talon Ultra 1K to remove cables from the exterior of your steed, smoothing areas that used to cause air ripples and drag to slow you down, while providing a cockpit that's finely tuned for performance when you're toeing the line on race day.
There are few things as sleek and stunning as a wireless ride, and we suspect that the engineers at Most agree, which is why the Talon Ultra 1K enables you to omit all cables from your cockpit emerging from under the bar tape. Instead, cables route internally through the bars and directly into the headtube, which not only creates a flawless aesthetic, but also lends itself to a claimed 5%-reduction in aerodynamic drag from Most's other Talon bars that utilize external cable routing. But the gains don't stop with aerodynamics — the bar also drops a whopping 10% of weight below the standard Talon, and gains just shy of 9% stiffness to improve handling under serious forces.
If you had the chance to ride the previous model Talon you'll appreciate that the Talon Ultra maintains the same reach and drop numbers as its sibling, but changes the aerodynamic profile on the flats slightly. As opposed to its predecessor, the Talon Ultra rounds out the aero flats slightly after receiving feedback from Pinarello's professional riders, which lands you with a bit more of a comfortable perch to rest your hands on when you're not in the drops.
Most crafts the integrated stem and bar combo in a huge variety of sizes to accommodate riders with different anatomy and preferences. You'll find stem lengths available ranging from 90mm to 140mm, and widths (center to center) from 42cm to 46cm. The bar is crafted exclusively to pair with the Pinarello F12, and features a proprietary stem clamp that won't play well with other bikes.

I ordered this handlebar/stem with my Pinarello frame. I ordered the same size handlebar and stem combination as on my other two road bikes, 110 mm stem and 42 cm handlebar. This particular size Talon Ultra was not in stock so had to be ordered. After waiting 2 months for the bar to arrive to build my bike, I was notified that that bar was back ordered again and would be another 2 months. After looking at the frame geometry again I decided that the 42cm bar with a 120 mm stem instead of the 110 would probably work and it was available in stock immediately. After receiving and riding the bike, the longer stem was not problematic. But I immediately felt that the width of the bars was narrower than my other bikes with 42 cm bars. After riding the bike a few times I found that I did not necessarily dislike the narrower bars but was curious why they felt so much narrower than my other bars. I found a size sticker on the bottom of the bar that confirmed it to be a 42 cm bar. However, measuring the bar center to center as my other bars are measured indicates that the bar size is probably based on an outside to outside dimension of the flat bars, not center to center as indicated in the product description Actual dimensions at the hoods is 37.5 cm center to center and 40.5 cm out to out. Dimensions at the flat bars is 39 cm center to center and 42 cm out to out. So if bar width is critical, you may want to consider this. The bar itself is extremely comfortable with the flat wide tops and a very comfortable (for me) bend to the drops. Overall, even with the dimensional issues, the bar is the most comfortable bar I’ve ridden.

good luck getting someone to pay that

Hey Dave S. Guess what...this bar only fits the new F12. So, if if you are building an F12 and want the integrated bar system then you buy this bar. $1000 is nothing if you are building an F12. I have the F10 and now the new F12. Each bike has a set of Lightweight wheels - $10,000 for each wheel set. Everyone could do without your opinion on the price of a product you will never own. The people that build F12's will spend the money to make their F12 perfect. So, don't worry about the price and leave it up the big boys to buy this bar.
