Pricey but the bar is light and comfortable, with a compact drop suited to riders with big hands

When the Syntace Racelite Carbon CDR handlebar debuted we were massively impressed with its comfort-giving flex, which is still apparent, but the competition has got much closer. We still love the distinctive rearward sweep, and the clever radius to the compact drop allowed our big-handed testers to get a decent grip.

The F149 stem has more substance than the lighter offerings from Syntace and, combined with what is a very light bar, makes for a great, balanced setup. If comfort is a priority and you’ve got deep pockets there is little to beat this pairing.
