Im a huge fan of the flat tops. In general I like this bar, however I feel the reach and drop are a little too small for me. Its not the bars fault. The bar perhaps could be great for someone with smaller hands and shorter stature.
These bars have the perfect flare on the drops not to mention a semi flat top so they're super stiff and really comfortable everything I was looking for and the price was right. I'm 6-2 and I used a 44 cm absolutely perfect
after looking at every Gravel bar under the sun this one just looked like the perfect combination I almost thought it was a misprint because of the price being so decent oh, but it's just the perfect size flare the top is semi flat but not bulky and it's a nice stiff handlebar I highly recommend it!
The bars have a flat (not aero) top section that made it a little tricky to get the position of the top and drops perfect at first but not a serious issue. I was unsure of the 12 degree flare but its proven to be the perfect amount for a more comfortable ride on road!
Installed on my new gravel bike. It's turned out to be a great bar. It's got a perfect combination of features ergo tops with shallow and nicely flared drops, drilled at the bar ends for Di2. Reasonably light and reasonably priced. Highly recommend.
Been running a 44cm compact bar for gravel and cross, tried this in a 42 have found it hits a sweet spot for me. More comfort & control in the drops on the loose stuff and I feel more aero in the hoods. Haven't raced cross on it yet but can't imagine it not working well. 12 degree flare is a great middle ground between road and dirt drops. Oh, and they are stiff - they feel about the same as the PRO Vibe carbon bars for flex and general (lack of) dampening. But that's what big tires are for IMO ...
