FSA Gravity 777 handlebar £79.95

Expensive but special bar

BikeRadar score 4/5

The new super-wide Gravity may be expensive but it's outstanding. The larger than average backsweep increases the effective ‘power assist’ of the extra width.

The minimal rise also keeps enough weight on the front wheel to stop understeer, without also stopping you popping the bike up easily off drops. Considering its width and reasonable weight, it’s super stiff too, giving lots of very tight control.

Excellent butting work means it never shatters your wrists even off a big one, making for a very rare comfort and control double-whammy. Rotation marks on top are easy to see and you get 55mm of cut marks.

Although the price is high, this is an outstanding bar for those who don’t trust carbon in true chaos situations.
