Prime Primavera X-Light Carbon handlebar review

Prime's ultralight carbon handlebar has a pretty unique shape

Prime Primavera X-Light
Cycling Weekly Verdict

I've been really impressed with the Primavera X-Light handlebar in terms of performance. I was skeptical of it's super-low weight since it costs less than half the price of equivalent weight carbon handlebars but it has yet to yield any short comings. If only Prime could expand the range to include a 38cm width - then it really would be a perfect upgrade for any cyclist.

The Primavera X-Light handlebar is just one of the ways Prime is expanding outwards from 'just' being know for its reasonably priced and highly regarded wheels. Developed off the back of the knowledge and understanding the brand has furthered in its work with carbon fibre, it represents a component that fits in within Prime's ethos of creating premium parts for reasonable prices.
