The wide one.

ENVE created the original Downhill Minnaar Bar in honor of Greg Minnaar’s third World Championships victory in 2013, which built on ENVE's DH bar with a wider 808mm stance and World Championship stripes. For v2, ENVE sought feedback from the bar's namesake and tweaked a few measurements for an even better ride feel. The rise bumps up 5mm to 28mm, reducing headset spacers and putting the bar axis closer to the frame. The back and up sweep have been adjusted from nine and five degrees in v1 to a slightly straighter 7.5 and 4.5 degrees for improvements in wrist positioning.

Since it’s based on ENVE’s beloved DH bar, you already know that this is an incredibly strong handlebar. Just as important, the ride-feel has been finely tuned, meaning that it’s sufficiently stiff, with just enough flex built in to effectively damp trail chatter, thereby reducing arm fatigue. It's light enough to earn a spot on your trail bike, yet durable enough to jump Pietermaritzburg’s 60ft+ tabletops with complete confidence. It comes out of the box at 808mm wide, Greg’s exact specs, but the cut lines at the end of the handlebar make it easy to trim it to a more modest size.

  • A carbon fiber handlebar built tough for downhill racing
  • ENVE carbon construction blends low weight and high strength
  • Sits higher and straighter than its predecessor
  • Can be cut down to a minimum width of 740mm

Great Bars

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Threw these on my Bronson about a month ago. Finally just got around to riding them for the first time this weekend due to being out with a wrist injury. THESE BARS ARE INCREDIBLE! I was worried with my injured wrist on how it would handle the Sundance DH course but with these bars my arms don't get nearly as tired as quick as the stock bars on the Bronson. Great purchase.

Contact me at the info below with questions!

Actually.. Great

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've never been into the super wide bar trend, the widest I go on my trail bike is 740-760 and I am 6' tall.

However, I got convinced to try a set of these out... I figured what the heck, they look great and I know Enve makes quality carbon, so I'll give them a go and then cut them down to maybe 760-780.

I put them on my HD bike (specialized Demo), sure enough they felt absurd. However... from the second I dropped into one of my usually DH trails I felt super comfortable and at-home with them. They were great all day, and I rode my usual trails feeling smoother than usual.

I'm not 100% sold still and there is a chance that I might trim them down a tiny bit to find a happy medium... but I would highly recommend trying these out and starting at the stock 808mm. The rise and sweep is also perfect for my liking, but that's just personal.

Update, been riding this bar all summer on my DH bike and still can't bring myself to cut them down at all. They feel a bit silly in the parking lot, but once I'm riding I am loving the width more and more. The bar itself is of course great and has all the benefits of a super high end carbon bar... less hand fatigue, durable so far, and in my opinion the rise and sweep is perfect but I guess that's a personal thing. These bars might be spendy, but they also might help you fall back in love with that old DH bike and help you put off buying a whole new bike. So technically, buying these bars will save you money :)

Second update. Got ride of that DH bike, but no way was I letting these beauties go with it. I put them on the trail bike I just built up. The width was just too out of control for me on a trail bike, so I cut them down to around 788mm. Still quite wide, but a little more reasonable. And what do ya know, they're still sweet. Might be mental, but I swear these are noticeably smoother on my hands than the mega stiff 35mm bars on my previous bike.
