FSA Energy Compact Alloy Handlebars

Product Review: FSA Energy Compact Alloy Handlebars

The 2020 FSA Energy Compact Alloy Handlebars maintain the double butted and tapered aluminum alloy construction, the semi-aero ergo flat shape on top and the compact drop from the previous version of the FSA Energy Compact Alloy Handlebar. The weight is slightly less due to less material from the channels for the cables that are routed in the bars while maintaining the strength. With the FSA Energy Compact Alloy Handlebars having short bends on the top of the handlebars it […]

Review: FSA K-Force Compact Carbon Handlebars

Review: FSA K-Force Compact Carbon Handlebars

For most of my years of riding, I’ve always stuck to using alloy bars due to their safety and reliability. However, carbon handlebars, specifically FSA K-Force Compact Carbon road handlebars, have come a long way putting any worries aside.

FSA SL-K Road Brakes

Review: FSA SL-K Road Brakes

The FSA SL-K Road Brakes are some of the most powerful road rim brakes I have used to date.

The brakes take standard Shimano type cartridge pads so aftermarket pads for carbon rims and the like are easy to find and changing brake pads is simple. Opening the brake for wheel removal is accomplished with […]
