current production?

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.

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...
