It’s no secret that wide and flared drop bars are great for riding on rough terrain and can help push your favorite gravel bike just a little bit further. We’ve seen an influx of wide drop bars over the last year, and even put together a detailed list of current options here. Joining their ranks is Farr’s new Wide-R GRVL Alloy handlebar, built by Nitto Handlebar Works in Japan for a clean, high-quality look that we can get behind.
