Stealthmode! Is the quality and the flex of the compatto carbon fiber dropbars any good?

The quality is pretty good and the flex isn't that bad. I think in the back of my mind I don't fully trust carbon so I'm not that aggressive with it. But overall great bars, shallow drops and flat areas for the palms.

Thanks for the reply. I'm looking for aero carbon dropbars. The S-works Aerofly or Enve SES are so freakin expensive so im looking into cheaper alternatives. Dont think Unknwn tested or made the bars for aerobenifits though

They look aerodynamic lol I was on eBay the other day and noticed they had chinse carbon bars like the unknowns but just not branded. They were fairly cheap as well. You're going to use them for the track?

No not for the track, the closest velodrome is 2 hours away and i have no car. I use my fix for long distance rides most of the times(live in holland so no hills or mountains). The flex is probably not the thing I have to worry about, but like you, I dont really trust carbon handlebars, except for companys like Zipp and 3T. Just because the bars have been extensively tested. A lot of big companys bike companys produce parts in asia, so it could be the same quality as the unbranded bars, but you just dont know. Im not willing to take the risk that my bars break during a sprint. Shit can get nasty.

Yeah I know what you mean. I am using 3t Ergonova pros right now for the same reason. I only have those carbon bars because they came on my bike when I purchased it. I just use them on my other bike for casual rides.

@Lennhvd these bars are actually a replica of the Specialized S-Works, so they have the same aero profile and I would dare to say, same manufacturer LOL so definitely a great bang for your buck :)
