I was happy with my Ritchey WCS curve alloy for 4 yrs. Now I lost weight ( :) ) , and I can stretch with more ease. I want a bar with a little more reach, and deeper drops. I bought a Pro Vibe classic bend, but the reach isn't longer than the WCS and the bottom curve is abrupt and my hands aren't confortable down there.
So looking for something that would look like a deeper WCS, with around 80 mm reach.
Thought about the Easton SLX3, though I would prefer a 240-250 g alloy bar.
What do you have to suggest ?

Have Fizik Cyrano R1 on the good bike, and KCNC SC Force on the racer. Neither are what you could call super-stiff, but they're both very comfortable and work really well for me. I don't mind the loss in ultimate stiffness, the roads are terrible round here and they take the edge off versus my former choice of old, heavy, deep drop Cinelli Axis.

The Fizik Cyrano kit in general is really nicely finished and well made. It's not the lightest by far, but it works very well.
