The Dajia Cycleworks Far Bar is a fantastic, lightweight off-road touring bar designed to be used with road components. Unlike dirt drops of years past, these allow you to have a normal hood position in addition to an easy reach to the brake levers from the drops. These bars are compatible with bar-end shifters as well as integrated shifters.
The Far Bars have a 21 degrees of sweep, ~40 degrees of flare, drop of 110 mm, and reach of 76 mm.
These bars are a little different then road bars in terms of measuring the width. The listed width (44 or 48 cm) is measured center of the hoods to center of the hoods.
The overall width is 585mm for the 44cm model, 625mm for the 48cm model. Weight is 292g.
Available in Silver and Noir.

I love the shape, but this bar should really include some printed lines on the hoods to make aligning the levers easier (something the Salsa Cowchipper does for the same price).
These bars are super nice in the drops! My bike feels a lot larger than before, albeit the bars are wider at the hoods now, but that's nice, it feels very at home on trails.
The only drawback is that a comfortable setup on the hoods requires me to have the brakes set back quite a bit, giving me less brake lever to grab in the drops. Something to figure out though!
Dajia Cycleworks Far Bar Handlebar
Great hand placements. Love the feel of a wider bar, even if I like the look of a narrow bar more. Always satisfied with Velo.
