Our review

Forza's range-topping cockpit is stiff, light and very good at handling vibrations, but it's not cheap

Belgian component brand 4ZA’s top-of-the-range handlebar/stem combination offers a low weight, great standard drop bar with a nicely contoured shape. The semi-flattened top is comfortable to hold and the neat cable-run channels complete a well-thought-out design.

The neatly produced stem is similarly no-fuss, just a very well made, optimal performer that offers a competitive weight for not much cash. Sadly, the same can’t be said of the bar’s price, but in its favour is the fact it’s surprisingly stiff for such a light model. 

It also does a very good job of reducing high-frequency vibrations from poor road surfaces, so it’s an impressive all-rounder with a near-premium price thats not too hard to swallow’
