The Stylo World Cup’s butted 7000 series alloy construction is shot-peened on the surface to reduce potential crack danger if you ding it, and it’s a good weight for the width. The centre section is etched with twist and side spacing markers, as well as basic dimensions and maximum torque settings so you can be sure you’ve clamped it in right.
There’s 2cm of trim markings etched onto either end, although most trail riders will want to leave it full width. The stubby riser section keeps it stiff for an accurate feel rather than high comfort. The rise isn’t so high it clashes with fat lights or other bar furniture.
Its control clamp diameter is from the World Cup rainbow stripes outwards so there’s plenty of room for brake/shifter/ suspension remote/grip adjustment. The outer section upsweep meant some testers had to do a lot of twisting to find a comfortable angle.
