The FSA K Force is despite the strange naming convention the most popular drop bar shape among experienced cyclists. Compact, in FSA speak, just means that these bars have a shallow, round drop not the oddly shaped anatomic bars. The 125mm80mm drop reach combo with a 4 degree sweep and the standard 40 44cm widths provides a comfortable platform with plenty of hand positions to alleviate discomfort after hours in the saddle. The 110mm center section is designed to accommodate clip on bars. The continuous Kevlarcarbon fiber weave is an excellent blend of strength, stiffness, and low weight.
