claimed weight is one thing, the real weight is another, hasn't anyone tried this bar yet?

High modulus carbon also means very brittle carbon, which increases the chance of a catastrophic failure. My 3T Ergonova 40cm bar weighs in at 187g., which I think it's light enough but also strong. I think anything less than 180g. is a bit risky.

Bringing this one back from the dead. Any reviews of this bar? The shape looks nice, and while it's expensive, it's less than most boutique offerings.

I've got the FSA K Force Light Nano, they have the same reach and drop...which I really like

The actual weight was as claimed...but are 20g heavier than these...

The FSA K Force Nano's seem plenty strong enough

meanwhile there is a review of the bar, 171,7 gr in 44cm, thats really good. of course i feel the urge to get it right now, but, luckily, 40 cm is out, and, with a clear head, spending 229.- euro for saving 45 gr over my fsa k-force is quite nuts.
