Compared to other carbon handlebars, ENVE Composite's mountain bars may seem slightly overbuilt, and they indeed are overbuilt. The resulting products, while only a few grams heavier than the competition, are also strong, stiff, and incredibly robust. In typical ENVE Fashion, the finish work is top-notch with bold, striking white and gray graphics over bare unidirectional carbon. The result is, in our opinion, one of the best high end mountain handlebar options for all sizes of riders in most off road disciplines.
ENVE’s Riser bar serves as an excellent all-around mountain handlebar, using a common geometry that should appeal to a wide range of riders and disciplines. Compared to other lightweight handlebars, the Enve Riser's wall thickness measures .2-.3 mm thicker. It's a visually perceivable difference that should give larger, aggressive riders confidence in the strength of the bar. The full length is 700 mm, with decal cutting guides in 1 cm increments on either end for accurate and simple customization. The ends of this riser bar are swept back 9 degrees and up 5 degrees for a comfortable and ergonomically superior ride.
The Riser bars are available solely in 31.8 mm stem clamp diameter. The center stem clamp section features a rough bead-impregnated coating, which reduces bolt torque requirements and ensures the bars won't slip even in the most extreme situations.
As with all carbon components, we strongly recommend use of a torque wrench when installing these handlebars. ENVE's maximum recommended stem bolt torque is 5.5 Nm. These bars are compatible with bar ends.
