Top-quality carbon bars for top-quality alloy bar money

As soon as we deflection tested the R900 we knew it was a good quality bar.

It has enough “give” at lower loading to enable it to damp out a lot of the road buzz, but deflects less at higher loading so it feels like a good stiff bar. 

Grooves front and rear help with cable routing under the tape, and the shape of the drops is a nice, slightly flattened, traditional curve.

Alloy inserts at stem and brake mountings and a Kevlar layer to prevent catastrophic failure in the event of the bar breaking round off a pretty impressive bar.
