The Cowbell 2 takes over as Salsa's premium cyclocross handlebar, using a slightly updated compact bend for improved ergonomics with current shift/brake lever designs.

This bar is made from 7050-T7 double-butted aluminum for an outstanding strength to weight ratio. 12-degree flared ends, a short reach and shallow drop offer increased control through the roughest off-road racing conditions. An extra long 120mm top section provides plenty of space for handlebar mounted accessories and eases transitions from the hoods. Salsa has also added a single indentation along the front of the bar for clean brake cable routing.

The Cowbell 2 features a 31.8mm clamp diameter, 76mm reach and 126mm drop. Single front cable groove. Various widths. Width is measured at the hood position (c-c), not the flared drops. 281g (claimed weight, 44cm). Bead Blasted Black finish.

The flare makes a huge difference

Smaller flare gives me road bike feel at the hoods and the flare makes a huge difference descending on gravel trail.

Great update to the Bell Lap bar, excellent for gravel riding

This really is an awesome bar for tarmac gravel riding. The Cowbell bar integrates great with the newer STI-type shiftbrake levers, producing a very flat junction from lever to bar. The Cowbell has enough angle to the drops to improve comfort while riding on the hoods, and the shallow drop with moderate flare allow me to use the drops more often, especially on gravel. This is a very comfortable bar for gravel riding, where you want the ability to roam all over the bar, depending on the terrain. My 42cm was about 280 grams, on my scale.

Super lightweight and fits my body very well

These bars are on my 'cross bike and I super duper love them. I have very broad shoulders and the slight flare of the drops allows me to not feel so crowded when I ride. They also provide an extra amount of leverage and control when trying to maneuver around some tight spots or when slogging it out through some mud.

Bar is very comfortable and practical for long gravel and road rides

The flair in the bars provides more stability by being slightly wider. I may put a set on my Madone as well as my Salsa Warbird

Like the hand positions

These shallow drop bars are perfect for gravel touring. More hand positions are always a good thing. Flare is a nice compromise.

great for extreme cross

Got the 46 width, descending and technical stuff is much easier, feels like I'm almost mountain biking...Highly recommended.
