FSA K-Force Light Nano K Compact Handlebar $283.99
Small is Big.
Full Speed ahead might not always get credit, but many of their early ideas later become the norm in cycling. Take compact gearing for instance. FSA ushered in the idea of using smaller chainrings to achieve lower gearing helping cyclists on long climbs and eliminated the dreaded triple. Now years later, most road bikes come complete with compact or mid-compact cranksets. Compact dropbars are another area FSA helped pioneer. Having drops that weren't excessively low encouraged riders to use them more often for better aerodynamics and helped cyclists and fitters find more comfortable positions. FSA uses new materials to save weight without decreasing stiffness or durbailty in the K-Force Light Nano K Compact Handlebar.
Carbon Nanotubes are carbon molecules having a unique interlocking cylindrical nanostructure. In FSA’s Nano-K products, these carbon nanotubes are combined with carbon fiber and resin to yield a carbon composite material with increased torsional strength and stiffness. Out-of-the-saddle climbing and overall handling won't feel like a wet noodle. These tubes not only exhibit unique electrical and thermal properties, but are the stiffest and strongest materials to date. These traits allow FSA engineers to use less material so a size 40cm bar comes in at an amazing 185 grams, while maintaining the same stiffness for top performance. The material is also super strong in compression so bolting on the controls and stem faceplate clamp to the textured surface isn't a fighting affair.
The 80mm reach and 125mm drop offer a comfortable reach to the hoods and the drops don't put you in a position that is so low you won’t likely use them. A 2-degree flare at the drops increase wrist clearance while sprinting. UD carbon finish and a splash of white and red add a flash of color to the front end of your ride. The K-Force Light Nano bar sets a new standard for performance and comfort.
