Polished grey anodising makes a refreshing change from white and black components, and the Lux’s sand-blasted drops allow levers to grip ﬁrmly without becoming overly tight.
Cinelli have got the variable radius shape just right; there's low lever reach in all the major groupsets, and the drops are comfortable whether you’re braking, sprinting or cruising.
Despite an average stiffness score, the Lux feels noticeably more stable than other similar bars once it's out on the road. However, buzz and poor tarmac punish the hands and wrists, even on shorter spins.
