Kinetix CarbonLite bars are among the lightest on the market. The CarbonLite bar on the Flo weighs only 160 grams. The patented manufacturing process involves wrapping a 7075 aluminum core with carbon fibers. This combination of two materials guards against catastrophic failure - the biggest weakness of all carbon components. The result is an ultra-light and super strong handlebar that dampens high frequency road vibrations.
