@LionelB: 177g for a 46 bar? Yes, that is a bit "scary". How do you find them?

I think they are claiming 185g for 42, so I was surprised by the 177g for 46... I have 2 rides on them and they are pretty good. I can feel some flex in the drops but not much.

Thanks for the suggestion. I haven't seen this model before today so I assume it is new for Deda?

Are the bar tops round or an odd oval shape?

It is new es. They are what Deda calls RHM, have a look at their website for a good side view of it. This is similar to the Deda zero shape.

I would go with the Zipp. :wink:

I think they were right around <180g. I've had 4 different bars (Forte, Zipp SLC S&S, Zipp SL, and 3T Ergonova) on my bike in the last couple years. The SL were the lightest, but I went back to a ergo bar and like my ergonova for the shape. Weight on the white Ergonova is a porky 215g though.
