New Nanoloight Compact Carbon Road Bars

Everyone at Planet X is very excited by our new carbon road bars. We’ve all been hoping they arrive in time for spring and they have!

The design brief was simple; create a handlebar that is comfortable, great looking and very light.


A little known fact about carbon; is that its an extremely good shock absorber. Our carbon bars do a good job of almost eliminating ‘road buzz’ so you can run your tyres at 100 plus PSI and not loose your fillings. Carbon also makes these bars incredibly light (200grams) yet strong and stiff thanks to high modulus carbon.

The bars shape was also carefully considered to ensure maximum comfort. The compact drop allows the riders to ride on the drops for longer without being too low, which can cause lower back and neck discomfort. A compact bar makes it easier to ride on the hoods and still reach the brakes with ease, even if you have smaller hands. The top of the bars are oversized and ergonomically sculpted maximizing comfort when climbing with your hands on the tops or just cruising on the flat sections. Double grooved cable routing so you can’t feel cables.

Understated classy looks

We’ve not gone crazy with the bars finish and graphics, as we wanted these bars to compliment any frame and build. Available in gloss white and lacquered carbon finish these bars will add a touch of class to any bike.
