Interbike 2010: New Nano-K Carbon Road Handlebar, Oversized Pro-Level Stem and Colors from FSA
If you recall, the big news from FSA was the release of their all-new complete drivetrain group: Metron.
On the backside of their display, they had some updates and new products for their K-Force components. The new K-Force Light Nano K road handlebar has carbon nano tubes in the resin. During the curing and molding process, it fuses the nano tubes into the unidirectional carbon fiber to create a stronger, more impact resistant bar. It weighs in at 189g (about 20g lighter than the regular K-Force Light bar). MSRP is $350.
Below it is a new stem developed with pros in mind, and they have some new graphic color options. Peep ‘em after the break…
The new K-Force Light Road Stem (which officially debuted in May) is extremely oversized by request of Pro Tour teams that wanted something extremely stiff. It uses reversed bolts on the face plate for both aesthetics and to save a bit of weight because they don’t have to reinforce the face plate as much. It has a 1.25″ opening with a keyed insert to make it fit 1.125″ steerer tubes. $250.
New color options in the SL-K parts line. The pink will only have 500 of each item coming to the U.S. and a portion of the sales goes to breast cancer research.
