WCS carbon bars and seatpin
This may be one of the most expensive seatpins and handlebar set-ups out there but they are also one of the best looking. Carbon wrap is tuned to provide torsional strength and vibration damping.Monocoque carbon technology and aerospace grade materials.
Best of all the bars are available in classic as well as weird shaped ergonomic. Tech spec as follows:

Oversize 31.8 center section increases strength and rigidity. They are available in 40,42,44cm (centre to centre) and 144 drop weight is 205g

The seatpost is equally lovely and has an ingenious clamp arrangement that places less strain on the components but still holds the saddle rails firmly. Available in 27.2 and 31.6 weight is 195g.

Prices: Seatpost £130 Handle bars £180
