Enve's compact carbon road handlebar is equipped with the same thoughtful design features as their standard road handlebar, but in a slightly smaller package. Compared to its predecessor, the compact bar has a 6 mm shorter reach and a 17 mm shallower drop. The resulting geometry finds itself useful under the hands of various riders; from sprinters to cyclocross riders, or those who simply prefer more useable and/or comfortable riding positions.
Enve's road handlebar design focuses on strength and comfort rather than absolute ultralight weight, and is equipped with several innovative design features. The bar is double grooved on the underside for easy cable routing, features a semi-flat hand section on top and a subtle ergo bend. Additionally, Enve makes use of textured non-slip sections at the stem and lever mounting positions. This bar also features integrated rubber bar end plugs that effectively prevent bar tape from unraveling.
Clip On Aero Bars
All Enve handlebars are clip on compatible as long as all clamping is done within the 105mm wide clamp area. Make sure that the outer edge of your clip on aero bar is no more than 52.5mm from center.
