It’s a real testament to the quality of the Syntace engineers work that despite the Racelite bar having been on the market some time, it’s still regarded as one of the best. A subtle ergonomic design, it starts at the stem clamp with a visible titanium mesh, which serves to reinforce the area and allow the use of clip-on tri bars-something most carbon bars can’t accommodate.
Brake and gear cable recesses run along the front and rear of the slightly ovalised top sections, which have a six-degree rearward sweep for improved hand and wrist comfort. Flattened sections on the drops also provide pronounced hand positions. 40-44cm sizes have a 78mm reach, the 42cm weighs 210g and there is also a 46cm, XL, version, too.
