This new bar from FSA’s hardcore division comes in right on point. The 800mm width gives serious leverage and at that span the nine-degree backsweep brings your hands a long way back and makes the steering even lighter.
Should you wish to slim things down a little, though, cut marks on the ends of the bar make trimming easy.
Smart butting means that even with the fat section carried right through the bends, there’s still a reasonable amount of resilient spring rather than a savagely rigid ride.
The Gravity Light bar isn’t too much of a brutal experience thanks to smart butting
The six-degree upsweep of the outer sections starts right at the bend though and the rise is tall for a claimed 25mm.
Cut marks make it easy to reduce the bar’s massive width
That means a distinctively high hand position and a twisted wrist angle that some of our testers found a bit awkward. It’s fairly expensive too.
