This second generation version of Enve's SES Aero road bar carries over all the same innovative design features of the original, with updated graphics, better electronic shifting compatibility, and 25mm longer drops.
The SES Aero full carbon road bar is NOT your typical road bar. Designed in the wind tunnel to reduce the drag coefficient as much as possible from a normal riding position, this handlebar is indeed as fast as it looks. Moving outward from the standard 31.8 mm stem clamp, the bar immediately takes on a flat aerodynamic shape that doubles as a comfortable climbing hand position with a wide surface area. The drops flare outward 2.5 cm on each side, creating a width at the hoods 5 cm narrower than a typical road bar. The idea is to reduce the width of the rider's frontal area in the standard riding position, while allowing maximum room for increased respiration when sprinting and pedaling hard in the drops. The drop and reach dimensions of these handlebars fall in line with modern "compact" geometry for best possible comfort and control on long or fatiguing rides.
The SES Aero bar is designed with internal routing to further improve aerodynamics by reducing cable exposure while creating a super clean aesthetic. As an update for the second version of this handlebar, the bar ends are now fitted with cutting guide lines to allow installation of Shimano's EW-RS910 bar-mounted A-Junction box. For those not using the EW-RS910, this bar is equipped with Enve's integrated rubber bar plugs - no more worrying about losing the cheap plastic bar plugs that most bars require.
Depending on your riding style, it may be advisable to select a wider SES Aero handlebar than you would normally ride.
