Azonic’s World Force handlebar is a classic, but now it’s had a refresh to bring it up to date with the current competition. 

Our 15mm rise bars weighed in at a respectable 335g, which is good considering that their price is pretty reasonable too. They’re also available in a 38mm rise option, and both sport a 31.8mm bar clamp diameter.

The three degrees of upsweep combined with the nine degrees of backsweep create a really flat-feeling bar that will definitely split opinions in terms of its comfort. It took us a while to get used to it. The flatter shape makes the bar feel wider than it actually is too. 

It’s 762mm wide and there are cut marks if you want to chop them down, marked in inches. The stem positioning marks in the centre of the bar can only be seen if your stem is less than 50mm wide, but if they are visible then they’re useful for getting your cockpit lined up accurately.
