Bending along three planes, the Woodchipper Carbon handlebar creates an extra-wide lower with a shallow drop. While it may initially look like a standard road bar, upon closer inspection the 24Âº flare in the drops is what sets it apart, boosting leverage, stability, and control dramatically.

Immediately after replacing the standard road bars on my gravel bike I noticed much more stability while blasting down gnarly, choppy terrain in the wide drops. Also, I immediately noticed less vibration from the carbon bars. With this purchase I also increased from 42 to 44 mm with. Together, although it may just be perception, I believe Im riding faster with these bars. Regardless gravel is even more fun now. On the flipside, sometimes I wonder if the outward drop angle of Woodchipper is too extremewide. Maybe the Cowchippers are wide enough. Either way, Salsa carbon chippers are the way to go.
