Edge Composites drop handlebar £287

Not the stiffest

BikeRadar score 3/5

By moulding the bar ends closed to increase the bar’s stiffness, Edge gives a visual clue to their freethinking approach to composite design.

Bar width is measured at the levers, with the bar widening noticeably through the drop for better leverage and wrist clearance, so take care when choosing your size.

When riding on the hoods, road feedback is slightly muffled, but their ability to isolate you from vibration is excellent.

Unfortunately, while riding in the drops, hard efforts create enough flex to affect steering, and while dropping into corners information about grip is lost in a fog of flex.
