Charlie says... "I love these bars. I use them on my Surly Cross Check. They are like the dirt drops of years ago, but a bit nicer, lower drop, so more useable. Very comfortable on the drops, loads of leverage for offroad, puts you in a very commanding position"
Salsa says.... Woodchipper is our signature drop bar for off road riding, where its unique shape delivers comfort and control no matter how rough the terrain. Woodchipper Bars bend along three planes to create extra-wide lowers while still maintaining a shallow drop.
Lightweight and strong 6061-T6 aluminum alloy construction
Ergonomic design works well with integrated road shift/brake levers or bar end shifters
114mm drop, 56mm reach, 25° flare angle, 38° drop angle

The Woodchipper’s non-conventional shape requires a unique setup for optimal comfort. The brake/shifter position should be canted downward slightly, resulting in a 20–25° downward angle of the drops.
