Hi,

I'm looking for a flared road handlebar.
So far I have found the Enve aero handlebar and the Salsa Cowbell.
I would like a combination of both, 35 c-c at the hoods and 40 c-c als the drops, like Enve, but without the aero top.
Salsa unfortunately doesn't go smaller then 38 c-c at the hoods and 43 c-c at the drops.

Are there any other options?

Not sure if they meet all the specifications, but there is also the alloy EA50 AX, EA70 AX, and carbon EC70 AX bars from Easton.
Michael - The Anaerobic Threshold is neither...

With that heavy of a flare you will probably be limited to "gravel" drop handlebars. Road bars, like the Eastons already mentioned, tend to flare only a little. The Eastons flare 2cm from hood to drop.

The smallest size for the easton bars is 40cm c-c at the hoods, that is way to wide! :)

Those would be nice!
36 at the hoods and 41 at the drops is nice and narrow!
Bit heavy, but cheap enough to give them a try.
Thanks!

The Easton EC90 variants are available in a 38cm width - measured at the hoods.

Those Easton bars have only 4 degree flare.
I would like something like 12 degree.

I have ordered the Rose bars, just to see and fit.
Maybe I will get the Enve some day if I really like it..

It's a poorly worded description those easton bars are all 16 deg flare.

Do you not have some options with those "beach racing" handlebars in the Netherlands? They look narrow and very flared, never seen them for sale online but I guess they must be readily available over there unless they are home made?
