  • Designed to allow a flat transition between handlebar and brake lever
  • Top radius allows comfortable hand positions all the way across, while maintaining short reach
  • 12-degree outward flare in the drops is great for gravel riding and ‘cross racing; same flare as previous Bell Lap
  • 7050-T76 alloy

  • Widths: 38, 40, 42, 44, 46cm

Great all around bar.

Replaced a woodchipper and its just the right reach and the drops are shallow enough that I actually use them. Logos wore off quickly, but who cares.

Pros: Good design and stiff.

Cons: None

Would Buy Again: Yes
Would Recommend: Yes

Pete

Love this handlebar. The short reach/drop is very comfortable on my cross bike which I use mostly for gravel road rides. I'll be ordering another one for cross bike I'm building up this fall.

Pros: Comfy. Good ergonomics.

Cons: none

Wanted my first drop bar to be comfortable, well made, and not too pricey. Looks like I found the right fit! I love the slight kicked out angle of the drops and the multiple hand positions, very comfortable.

Pros: Design
Sizing
Fit
Quality

Cons: None!

The best cyclocross bar

This bar came stock on my Salsa Chili Con Crosso. I immediately fell in love with it. The shallow and flared drops makes it so easy to ride in the drops during a race. Its more stable then riding on the hoods and really instills confidence taking gravel at speed. I got another pair for when I convert my bike from a SS racer to a geared training bike. If you race cross or like to take your bike into the gravel and mud, this is the best handlebar!

Pros: Very comfortable, shallow and flared drops make this a very stable handlebar in sketchy terrain.

WowBell bars!

I placed the 44cm on my steel road bike and came away with a noticeable improvement in comfort on more positions than the FSA compact wing bar with similar drop. I appreciate the position in the drops, hoods, behind the hoods on the corner bend and even the cross/flat section where I thought I'd miss the wing shape of the FSA bar. The Salsa bar has a great finish and overall shape. Even the 44cm in the Cowbell is slightly wider than the 44cm in the FSA compact bar. Also the flare in the drops of the Cowbell is a noticeable improvement in comfort without looking out of place on my road bike.

Probably my favorite bars to date.

Thanks Salsa. You've done it again.

Pros: shape, finish, comfort, appearance, quality, has marking for fitting brake levers

Cons: none right now

Bought this bar to try as an alternative to my on-one midge's and it works great. Roomier in the drops and the flare seems just right for my cross bike. I'm thinking of putting them on my road bike as well since they measure up almost identical to my zero 100's but the outward flare feels so much better.

Pros: hand position
shallow drop
road feel

Cons: none yet
