For light the deda 215 is good...
ttt forgie is a pretty stiff bar
the ritchey pro I had was stiff

I have a Cinelli Solido that I'm afraid to use...

I'm not too sure what I think is stiffest in current production and non-OS, but surely the Cinelli 65 has got to be one of the more rigid non-OS handlebars made, followed closely due to it's greater drop by the 66.

Since you didn't specify materials... The Easton EC90. I also have a set of Ritchey WCS and Deda 215's. By comparison the Ritchey and Deda feel like they are rubber hoses.

looky.. both me and e-richie love the oval concepts. that's a lot of sexiness to get invested into some bars. buy some. you'll see...

Technically, track, not road equipment, but you could use them on the road (with a 25.4 mm stem):

Nice! They would likely win the stiffness (and safety) award for non-OS bars...
