Fizik Cyrano R3 Aluminium Road Handlebars
The Cyrano R3 is the high-end alloy handlebar from fi’zi:k.  Made from Ergal Aluminium (7075-T6), this is both strong and lightweight.
 
Just as your choice of fi’zi:k Spine Concept™ saddle shape is guided by your degree of spinal flexibility and subsequent pelvic rotation, fi’zi:k offers this same Spine Concept™ guideline to help you choose your most comfortable road handlebar shape. These products are being ridden at UCI World Tour level by AG2R Pro Cycling Team.
 
Your shoulders’ width should determine your handlebar width.  Choose from the following centre-centre measurements: 400/420/440/460mm.  Fi’zi:k handlebars widths are measured centre-to-centre ‘on the tops’ (behind where the STIs are attached to the bar).  They are NOT measured centre-to-centre ‘on the drops’ (between the centre of each bar plug).
 
The Snake Handlebar: If you are very spinally flexible (far less than 90 degrees between your straight legs and your back when bending over as far as you can, keeping your legs straight a shoulders’ width apart), you are a Snake.  You are better able to reach further and get down lower to use the full radius of more rounded, classic-style, deeper-drop handlebars. You will prefer the Snake Handlebar because it has a longer reach (85mm) and deeper, classic-style drop (140mm).
 
The Chameleon Handlebar: If you have an intermediate degree of spinal flexibility (approximately 90 degrees between your straight legs and your back when bending over as far as you can, keeping your legs straight a shoulders’ width apart), you are a chameleon.  You are better able to reach further, but perhaps you can’t get down quite as low on the handlebar drops as a Snake would be able to. You will prefer the Chameleon Handlebar because it has a longer reach (85mm) but a shallower, more ergonomic-style drop (135mm).
 
The Bull Handlebar: If you have a relatively low degree of spinal flexibility (more than 90 degrees between your straight legs and back when bending over as far as you can, keeping your legs straight a shoulders’ width apart), you are a Bull.  You will not be able to reach as far or bend as low as a Snake or a Chameleon would be able to. You will prefer the Bull Handlebar because it has a shorter reach (80mm) and a shallower, more ergonomic-style handlebar drop (130mm).

Well marked to aid positioning. The shallow drop makes for easier positioning on the bike
I always had a tough time getting the correct bend that was comfortable. I used Fiziks fit guide and these hit the mark.
So far, I LOVE this bar. I am a bit of an oddly shaped beast, at about 1.8m tall but with the shoulders of someone easily over 2m tall. So, I needed a wide bar that doesn't have too much reach & drop. This bar is the first 44cm bar that I can actually ride comfortably in the drops. Better still that it's super light!
