Hoping to make things a little more comfortable, Beast Components just released the Ultra. More specifically, the Ultra bar is a made-in-Germany carbon dropbar that focuses on ergonomics to provide a comfortable, controlled ride.

Beast Components says that the bar features three main zones that are focused on ergonomics. Starting with the top of the bars, the flat profile offers a more comfortable place to rest your hands when you’re just cruising a long.

Beast Components Ultra Bar hoods

When you’re riding on the hoods, the bar has a unique larger contact surface where your palm would typically be. The bar has flattened the outer edges to allow for a relaxed grip when on the hoods again for increased comfort and reduced fatigue.

Then the drops have a tight bend at the top with a shallower bend on the lower section.

Beast Components Ultra Bar specs

All combined, you should end up with a comfortable bar with an 80mm reach, 128mm drop, 2° backsweep, and a bit of flare. Offered in black Unidirectional Carbon finish, the bars have a claimed weight of 218g for a 42cm, and are priced at 399,90€.

Check out our first look at Beast’s Gravel bar that shares much of the same aero/ergo shaping, but with much wider flare, plus their latest hookless tubeless carbon gravel bike wheels here.

That’s a very disappointing weight for such a high priced bar, even considering ergonomic features

Is it? Are you expecting something that would help you climb better like a surely noticeable 200g? I think it makes a lot of sense that the shape and material needed for that shape probably makes the bar weigh what it does and that is due to the materials involved, not the price. But if 218g is too heavy, it’s probably best you stick to complaining online anyway. I hope this disappointment doesn’t bring you down more than the extra 20 grams.

No 38 cm variant?……. that’s an easy way to gain aero and what about the ladies/juniors and svelte men?
