Fizik Cyrano R5 Aluminium Road Handlebars
The Cyrano R5 is the entry level handlebar from fi'zi:k.  Made from 6061 Anticorodal Aluminium.  It offers the ability for riders to incorportate the fi'zi:k Spine Concept™ system at a lower price point.
 
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).

Not much to say, feels good and light compared to most aluminum road bars, if your fit is a narrow (400mm wide) compact bar, it is the way to go!
Nice comfortable handlebar
These handlebars were readily available in the width and size that I needed; they also were at a price-point that fit my budget. I am very pleased with the quality, and expect to get many miles out of them. I should note that the weight of these is very competitive for the price. Zero complaints.
Great piece of kit, relatively light. Would not suggest going any dearer as this offers great performance at an affordable price
