FSA K-Wing Compact handlebar

Our review

Good for reducing bar height but too flexible for challenging descents

By shaping the top section so it rises above the level of the stem, the new compact version of the FSA K-Wing lifts all hand positions noticeably compared to a standard bar.

This makes it a great choice for anyone who prefers a more upright ride. The short 125mm drop is well shaped and the tubing is subtly flattened to create more surface area to help reduce pressure too.

It loses marks, though, due to the fact we couldn’t find a comfortable position with SRAM levers, and cornering as well as sprinting loads caused unnerving flex which affected handling and our confidence to ride at speed.
