K-Force Compact Handlebar

While FSA was the true trailblazer for compact gearing — the 50/34T chainring combo, its compact handlebar merely added to the design most requested by cyclists. By compact handlebars, FSA means shallow drop handlebars. These feature round drops, not awkwardly shaped anatomic drops, with a nicely abbreviated drop/reach combo of 125mm/80mm. They have a 4-degree sweep, keeping them nicely narrow in the hoods, but allowing for added leverage when you're hammering in the drops.

The K-Force Compact has a 110mm center section to accommodate clip-on bars. Its continuous Kevlar/carbon weave provides equal parts strength, stiffness, and lightness. The stem clamp and lever areas are textured and reinforced, so your components will snug up nicely without tempting you to overtorque bolts and/or crush the bar.

The FSA K-Force Compact Handlebar comes in a 31.8mm clamp only. They come in the color Carbon and are available in sizes 40cm, 42cm, and 44cm measured center to center.

  • Compact design improves reach and comfort
  • UD carbon and kevlar composite construction drops grams and boosts durability
  • The wide 110mm center section adds real estate for clip-ons and accessories
  • Double width, single cable groove improves stiffness and fatigue life
  • FSA bars are measured center to center of the drops and due to flair it will be narrower in the brake hoods than the drops

Great bar if 'compact' is your game

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Attracted by the cost and relatively similar proportions, I bought this bar after a bad wreck destroyed my cross bike's aluminum bar...along with a couple of ribs. Two weeks later I raced it in a 50-mile gravel grinder and my shoulders weren't shaken to bits. I was so impressed that I ordered a second one for my road race bike, and I'm loving it! I was a little nervous to push at full crank on something so light, but it held up to a couple of my hardest possible Zwift sprints (better to fall in the house at 0 mph than out on the road at 25+), and still feels lively and connected out on the road.
