By posting on an online forum, you are subjecting yourself to the opinions of others. This is a risk that you will have to take to get a definitive answer to anything. Not to mention.. What you are asking for is practically an opinion anyways.

Regardless of the fact, if I had to wager a guess (which is my opinion), they are probably the 'Hydroformed Cinelli Bullhorns' (Not the 2011's sorry) (31.8 clamp and seemingly aero flat tops) that come with the new Cinelli x Mash frame. Again, this is my opinion.

Ha, bar buddies? Not so much. I was asking mainly for the fact that they look really really comfortable, as I used to have pursuit bars (as ALX suggested) and they were a nightmare, at least for me.

Nashbar is a poor option for me, being in NZ. Pretty much anything I get is gonna have to be imported, so it's not really the great cheap and cheerful option that it seems.

I guess I was. Sorry if I came off a bit abrupt. I know there are a lot of opinions floating around on here about which bars are the best, and I should have expected that before a legitimately helpful answer.

Such as yours. So thanks! I'll see if I can find some more info on those Cinelli ones.

Bar comfort is unique to each person.

I had a pair of "Aero" bullhorns which I couldn't stand, I had RB-018's which I liked but RB-021 (similar to El Toro's) are very comfortable to me. I don't mind the close "hands on stem" position and riding on the dropped section is the perfect amount of adjustment when I need another position because i'm getting stiff, or if I want to sprint.

Oh, and I think the mash bars on the picture above are the ones you are looking for.
