Reviews Bontrager Race XXX Lite

Bontrager Race XXX Lite

If it fits, this good-looking 668g bar, available in black or white, is cracking value for money. Trek has been making carbon bikes and bits for longer than most other brands.

While this combo isn’t light, it’s strong enough for big boys to use their swimming shoulders without worry on the climbs. The flat, forward-swept base bars put the kinked horns in a comfortably neutral position. And they’re drilled for internal- or external-insertion brake cables.

Forged armrest wings provide four width positions, while the alloy armrests are drilled to give another four fore/aft options. There’s no height change option, though, and the thick pads are nothing special. The tall hockey bends can be rotated and slid back and forth, and straight extensions are available as extras.
