My handle bar was only 230g - real weight
I checked it with electronic scale

Just ordered a pair of these in 42cmx100mm. Given the reach is 93mm, I think that’s going to be about right as compared to the 120mm stem and 75mm reach Deda RHM setup I’d have normally had. Or maybe I’m just justifying going shorter since that’s all they had left after I procrastinated..

The reach on the bars is printed as 85mm but the site does state 92mm. I've emailed Trek to clarify but no one seems to know.

Hmm, well, to my naked eyes, the reach looks pretty dang long, especially combined with eTap levers..

Will see how it all comes together I guess.

It's listed on the internal Trek site as 92mm reach. Their compact bar isn't so compact.


Width : 400mm
Stem Length : 100mm
Rise : -7 deg. x 100mm
Drop : 122mm
Bend : VR-CF
Reach : 92mm
Color : Carbon
Weight(g) : 228

Yeah, I don't know where the flex comments are coming from in ordinary use. Mine are almost too stiff.


Came from feed backs few years back when it was part of their "world lightest stock bike". Remember discussing the topic with a French journalist then a dealer in the western side of France.
Can also note that it's not part of their 12k$ slr9 Emonda, when the aero combo is part of the top level madones.
I wish we had lab-test to confirm and compare to a schmolke-mckf setup type.

One could object that on the Vuelta Contador had it installed and unless he looked to save weight when balancing the bike on the climbs, he could use any bar and still be at 6.8kg.

Now saying "almost too stiff", means you never tried a stiff combo or never pull "hard" on the bar. It is perfectly ok depending on you style (and likely my case since I don't race), but a 230g combo won't ever be super stiff (in absolute).
Now if it compares to a berk combo or any other lightweight combo... that may be worth price wise.

Anybody buy one of these and need a shorter stem? I have a 100x42cm and could really use 110x42 or 120x40... Mine is NIB.

I have a 110x44, been thinking about switching it for something a tad shorter.
