Nice bar, not for sprinting
- I've used it several times
I really like the looks of the bar and even though the top portion of the bar is aero bladed it's actually not that bad to climb with. My two complaints which are personal preference over anything else is the drops are super narrow and I find it uncomfortable for my grip and would need to add some sort of filler to bring up the thickness of the bar while being in the drops. It is an unusually small diameter right there. My second complaint is a good and bad. The reach on these bars is a little longer than what I prefer. It's an 80mm reach and if you want to grip the hoods and hunch over and rest your forearms on the bars also for the Aero get-away or TT'ing positing great. If you are in the drops and going to go for the sprint and / or just coming out of a corner accelerating you need to be careful of your forearms. I consistently smash my arm just above my wrist on the top portion of the bar, so much so that I actually get black and blue marks. This long reach can also have another positive. If you do live in a climbing type environment the longer reach puts you in your racing position but on the climbs it does bring the tops closer and allow you to sit up a bit more to get more air in the lungs.
