well, you can have a look here: http://ax-lightness.de/en/cycling/bike- ... l-rounder/

and here:http://www.mcfk.de/en/products/handlebar-road-bike-en/lenker-rennrad-en.html

that will get you into the lightest bar realm pretty quickly!

The lighest bars at a sane price are the Zipp SL Short & Shallow. They come in at 173g for 40cm. If money is no object then you can go with the AX Lightness, Mcfk or Schmolke bars.

Drainyoo is pretty much nailing it. I have Zipp SLs on my bike. They are very light, and very good bars for the price.

My Lightweight Rennbugel bars came in at 167g for 42cm width.
And they are sweet, but not the cheapest.

They are carbon, and you can find them for around $230 if you look hard enough on the Bay. It's the top of the line Zipp bar. Make sure it's the short & shallow version. The traditional version is a little heavier.

I cut the ends off mine and the weight dropped to 168g.

3T Ergosum Ltd will challenge Zipp SL in weight and price.
I have the 44cm version which weighed 178gr.
Around 250 bucks on eBay.

As well a lot of the very expensive light bars such as Schmolke, AX Lightness have suggested rider weight limits. If your 100 kilo like moi. It limits the range somewhat.

Another vote for 3t LTD. My 44cm Ergosums came in at 182gms. $110 on eBay, but I got lucky.

not a great deal of use as I've lost the mass numbers but my 3T rotundo LTD from years ago was around the 190g mark give or take a couple..in 44cm width.

My Schmolke TLO in 42 cm came in at 149g (31.8 version)

They are pretty stiff for my weight (61-62kg) and the shape is good (not-ergo and fairly compact but not overly so)

A Schmolke TLO OS (Ø31.8mm) I've used weighed 139 grams in 440mm.

You can find some great deals on the Bontrager XXX carbon bars that typically weigh 170-180g. I've bought a couple of them for less than $100.

FYI
