With its RR1. 0 line, Syncros shows an appreciation for clean lines and sleek shapes. The high modulus carbon fiber it uses to mold the RR1. 0 Carbon Aero BarStem 400 means that clean design also dampens road vibrations and provides stiff, responsive steering and handling. Though it's meant for racing, the bar's flat tops also make for a larger platform for resting palms while sitting up. This incurs a slight weight gain compared to the RR1. 0's more traditionally shaped sibling, but we think the added comfort on long climbs or training miles is worth it. The RR1. 0 line's drops adopt a largely traditional round shape, but Syncros does add a slight ergo bend to combat fatigue and allow for a solid grip on the bars when tucking into an aerodynamic position without taking away from the RR1. 0's clean aesthetic. The 80mm reach and 130mm drop push this bar to the shorter, shallower end of the traditional spectrum without taking away from its versatility. The bar's dimensions recommend it for racing or as a reliable, efficient companion during training rides.
