    Carbon Handlebars with Flat Top and Short Drops

    I'm looking to replace my bars with something with a shorter drop (in the 120mm to 125mm range) but with the flat tops that I've gotten accustomed to on my old bars. Prefer to stick with carbon too.

    The Giant Contact Aeros seem to fit the bill as does FSA K Force Lite, but I'd love to hear any recommendations from anyone who has bars that match what I'm looking for.

    Thanks!

    I like my new 3T Aeronova Team bar, but at 127mm, the drop is a bit longer than you want.

    3T Ergonova Team has a 123mm drop and oblong tops. Not flat, but not round. Its what I use on my road bikes and am very pleased with it.

    I use the aluminum 3T Ergonova, and I've been pretty happy with that bar so far on several bikes. I used to have the carbon version, but I couldn't use clip-ons with it and didn't notice that much of a difference between the aluminum and carbon versions in terms of ride quality.

    Zipp makes a short and shallow option that would fit your criteria, can't remember which off the top of my head.

    I've been using the same Zipp Contour SL Short & Shallow bar for several years without an issue. Nice bar, super lite carbon that works well for IAB, climbing, and sprinting.

    FSA K-Force Lite would fit the bill. Flat top, carbon, mine is ~217g on the scale.
