Highlights of month: FIND YOUR WINGS WITH THE K-WING AGX HANDLEBAR
Handlebars can define a bike almost as much as any other component. Gravel bars can make a bike really stand out and can vary as wildly as the terrain they are built to navigate. Built using a full carbon UD construction, the FSA K-Wing AGX handlebar provides a good looking, comfortable and responsive set of carbon drops.
The FSA K-Wing AGX is a very lightweight handlebar which will allow you to ride many miles in comfort while at the same time as adding a certain “bling” factor to the front end of your bike.
Comfort is the utmost importance in gravel riding and this handlebar by FSA offers a more natural position that will appeal to riders who want to get into the drops more.
This bar features sculpted contact points for the "hoods" and "drops" on the bar for improved ergonomics. The compact design also makes for increased comfort and easier braking while in the drops.
Additionally, the flared drops allow for better control and clearance when descending and the extra wide internal cable grooves are compatible with Shimano Di2 shifting groups. The bar has reinforced textured clamping areas and a 115 mm drop with 76 mm reach.
The original K-Wing road handlebar still performs well on the road too. During the latest edition of Vuelta de Espana, EF Education First rider Simon Clarke won the 5th stage after a breakaway on the hilly roads of Andalucia.
If you are looking for a great set of handlebars in all conditions for your gravel bike, look no further than the K-Wing AGX.
