Not all carbon is created equal, and the FSA K-Force Light Nano K Compact Handlebar proves that this statement couldn't be more obvious. Made from a proprietary carbon construction process, the K-Force Light Nano Handlebar simply does more with less. And when paired with FSA's trendsetting compact shape, you'll be reaping the benefits of lower weight, higher comfort, and greater handling.
FSA's K-Force Light Nano K Compact Handlebar is made from the exclusive monocoque nano tube carbon fiber. Formed in a continuous, one-piece construction, the nano design provides a heightened rigidity and immense weight savings over traditional carbon fiber. This is achieved by FSA inserting nano tubes into the carbon resin. During the molding process, the tubes are fused with the monocoque carbon, where they act as a reinforcement. Ultimately, this process allows the bars to use less material for greater comfort and stiffness. Additionally, the carbon construction dampens road vibration which, over time, reduces material fatigue. The engineered result is simple -- the K-Force Light Nano K handlebar will remain stiffer, longer.
The K-Force features reinforced and textured clamping areas for the attachment of the levers and stem. This treatment prevents slippage, and helps to maintain the life of the bars. FSA has also widened the center section to 110mm in order to allow the addition of clip-on aero extensions or any combination of accessories. To achieve an agreeable shape that improves reach to the drops, FSA has designed the K-Force Compact with a shallow 125mm drop, 80mm reach, and 2 degree outward bend. And to ensure a consistent fit and ride quality for every rider, these dimensions vary in scale by each of the three widths available. The bar also offers internal cable routing, not only for a sleek aesthetic, but also for an unencumbered hand position.
The FSA K-Force Light Nano K Compact Handlebar is available in the widths 40cm, 42cm, and 44cm. The handlebar is only compatible with 31.8mm clamp diameter stems, and features a UD carbon finish.
