This seems to just be an opportunity to praise a boutique product that doesn't have any advantages over alternatives that are readily available, comparable or better, and cheaper.

Funny that a bar designed by a manufacturer that primarily caters to MAWMs would feature a super short and shallow shape that gives a hand position that doesn't change the body's orientation when in the drops since that crowd is less concerned with things like basic bike fit and more with exclusiveness.
Don't take me too seriously. The only person that doesn't hate Froome.

But sad that the handlebar was so "heavy". Nordischer Rahmenbaustem?

hello,

mine is 164g for weight limit of 110kg.

you can order from, MCFK, talk to Martin.

As far as the ride, i like it alot, very similar to previeus FSA K-FORCE NANO in size - drop and reach, but with top round chape.

best Regards

I confirm, the handlebar is a bit heavier than announced (160/161gr for 42cm C/C).
But MCFK is one my favourites brands: quick avalaibility, custom options (lengths), light and reliable parts (hundreds of sold parts and no problem), and Martin is a nice guy.
Some pictures of my own bike where you can see the MCFK parts (handlebar, seatpost, saddle, seatclamp):
