FSA’s carbon and aero topped K-Wing bar wouldn’t have been our first guess for a new gravel version, but the AGX is exactly that.

The 230g (42cm) carbon bar matches the ergo drop of the K-Wing with a re-profiled and sculpted cross-section for a better hold at the hoods. The compact (115mm x 75mm) drop is also flared for better control and clearance when descending.

FSA’s second-tier carbon line SL-K also joins the dirty drop bar party with the new super compact crankset.

The hollow carbon arms are mated to an AL7075 CNC-machined chainring pairing. It’s available in both 46/30t and 48/32t combos. It tips the scales at 617g.
