Just announced, Salsa added a silver finish option to their popular Cowchipper and Cowbell Deluxe drop-bar handlebars. For those unfamiliar, the Cowchipper is Salsa’s all-day, gravel and mixed surface drop-bar, providing 24° of flare and five different widths right up to 46cm wide. The width and extra flare mean more stability and comfort during long rides.
The Cowbell, although a bit less dramatic than the Cowchipper, offers up 12° of flare, and a shape more similar to a traditional road bar. The Deluxe models retail for $75 and are constructed from lightweight 7050-T6 aluminum alloy, saving some weight over the standard 6061-T6 aluminum versions.
For those looking to save even more weight, the Cowchipper, Cowbell, and Woodchipper bars are also all available in carbon, which we wrote about last year. Head over to SalsaCycles.com to learn more or visit your local Salsa dealer to place an order.
