When it came on the scene years back, the Salsa Woodchipper Bar was a bit of an anomaly amongst the so called "normal" looking road drop handlebars. Fast forward to the present and it seems like every bicycle component company is making a flared road handlebar. With the explosion of adventure cycling and gravel cycling there has been a demand for flared bars that can deliver the comfort and control needed where the terrain gets a bit hairy. The Salsa Woodchipper is the original wide flared bar offering 25 degrees in the drops and a 38 degree drop angle.
The Salsa Cycles Woodchipper Deluxe offers an incredible value compared to the carbon version. Made from lightweight, durable 7075-T6 aluminum, the Deluxe also has a nice, polished finish where it's not wrapped.
Available in 42cm, 44cm, and 46cm

120mm 31.8mm section for mounting accessories
25 degree flare, 38 degree bend
44cm weighs approximately 329 grams

Due to the unconventional shape, the Salsa Woodchipper Handlebarrequires a little bit more care to setup than the average handlebar. The brake/shift levers should be aligned downward in a 20-25 degree angle. We recommend picking up the Salsa Cycles Glyph Tape. The GlyphTape''s cut slightly longer than normal handlebar tape to accommodate the length and flare.
