Hi mates,
I'm searching for the perfect handlebar and I got to know both great ones at the same price and kindly want to ask for your opinion :)

Thanks

I have the 5D ACR on my 2023 Polygon Helios A8x (110mm x 410mm). Love the bar but it's too long at 110mm and the forward bend in the bars pushes the hoods even further away. Just ordered a F1s bar today.

How is the ramp angle on the Vision combo?
I prefer a horizontal which is almost impossible to find.

At the same price, select western brands.

Farsport is well respected and known company. And F1 handlebars are also known to be very good. So when someone say just go for the western brand, is simply not realistic advice.

I am also planning the F1s upgrade, but am still on hold, as I am planning it with the new Di2 setup. Have done tons of research and compared them to other potential handlebars, and F1s is the way to go.

If it also helps, you have a discount coupon for F1 as well: FAR-OFF-50

Not necessarily, the range of different dimensions is way to limited here, the narrowest Metron-bar is 400mm, i ,f.e., want 360mm.

Assuming everything else is equal.
