Road bike handlebars come in a huge variety of widths, reaches and drops and making sure you get the right style for your bike and riding style is essential. Are you a racing snake looking for a maximum attack position on the bike? Look for a bar with a long reach (80mm+) and long drop (130mm+). Riders who want a more relaxed position should check out bars with a shorter reach (75mm or less) and shorter drop (125mm or less) as this will put them in a higher, more upright position. Flared handlebars are becoming popular with gravel grinders and adventure riders, so if this sounds like you a bar with flared drops are a good bet. Riders who want the most aerodynamic bike possible are also able to select an aerodynamically shaped bar with wide, flat tops for maximum aero performance.
