I am looking to change a few things on my xc bike to lighten it up.
I want to install new set of bars (carbon and wide) and install a new carbon post.

Does anyone have any thoughts on syntace as a brand? I want the bar to be flat with some sweep to it.

I am also interested in easton as well.

My seat tube diameter is 27.2.


Any suggestions or thoughts would be appreciated.

Syntance is decent stuff.

That said, I'm not a fan of carbon seatposts. The weight isn't any lower than a good alu post, and personally I cracked a carbon seatpost by overtightening the seat collar. Easy to do, especially with a QR clamp.

If you really want to shed weight, I would first look at the wheels and tires. Tires can shed a ton of weight for not much dough. Switching to tubeless or super lightweight inntertubes (if you can get away with it) is an easy way to drop 1/4-1/2 pound of rotating weight for less than $30 (okay, maybe $60 for tubeless).

I have the Syntace Vector Carbon Low10 740mm bar on my race bike.

Perfect, really.
