VeloMag recently tested and reviewed our FSA Plasma Integrated Compact Handlebar and it received great feedback. Velo released a review in their latest edition of their magazine and gave the bar 4/5 stars. This is what they had to say:

“The Plasma is by far our favorite integrated bar and stem in this review. For our 5’10” tester, the 125mm of drop and 80mm of reach offer such a perfect fit in all riding positions, the Plasma felt like custom-molded bars. The tops are rounder than the others in this test, but the shape cradles the hands for a comfortable and secure grip all the way to the hoods. In the drops, a flat section on the hooks provides a wider, more substantial surface to grasp. If the $659 price tag gives you pause, consider comparable carbon two-piece systems, like Enve’s SES bar and stem, which add up to nearly the same price – minus the sleek integration.” – VeloMag
