FSA Energy Wing Pro Compact Handlebar $74.95
The best of both styles
Handlebars have run the gamut of shapes from ergo, to round to a composite of the two. The FSA Wing Compact Pro takes the shallow drop that has become popular and mated it to a flattened bar top to provide additional hand positioning options.
FSA championed the concept of the wing-style handlebar years ago. They provided riders with the first-ever alternative to the traditional round shape of bar tops. The flattened cross section nicely molded to the shape of loose fists—exactly what many of us have when we climb with our hands on the tops. With the Wing Pro Compact, FSA mates this wing-style top with a shallow ("compact") drop. At a 125mm drop and 80mm reach with round drops, you can easily find your sweet spot in the drops without having to force your hands to conform to the flat area of an anatomic drop.
The Wing Pro Compact is made from double-butted, tapered, shot-peened, and anodized aluminum. The center clamping section is purposely wide, at 120mm, so that you'll be able to clamp on accessories, like aero bars. They come in a 31.8mm clamp only and are available in 40, 42, and 44cm measured center to center.
