Monocoque construction maximizes the strength of carbon. Aerodynamic profile and more surface on top of the bar to hold onto when climbing. Textured stem and shifter clamp areas. 6 degree swept-back tops, 2 degree flare on drops for a more comfortable riding position. Deep groove hides cables. Specifications: • Material - Carbon • Width - 42 cm • Drop/Reach - 144/82 mm • Weight - 230g • Finish - 3K Carbon • Clamp Diameter - 31.8 cm
Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Excellent bars - flared
These are excellent bars however the sizing information on this site and on the Ritchey site is misleading. A 44 cm is indeed 44 cm centre to centre at the tips of the drops, however on the hoods it is a 42 cm. This apparently is know as flared. A 42 cm on the drops is to small for me so I had to send them back.

Added these to my super six and these are the most comfortable bars I have ever owned. Very strong and direct but take a huge amount of buzz out of the front end. Easily betters the SLK's I had on before.
