Let them know you ride ENVE.
ENVE's road handlebars are an easy choice if you're looking
for that crowning touch on any road, 'cross, or gravel build. Its
well-engineered design lends an extremely lightweight build at 205 grams,
that’s been held by riders wearing the polka-dot jersey, proven stiff enough
for the high wattage romps to the finish by the Manx Missile, and strong enough
for Eddy the Boss at Co. over the cobbles of Roubaix. If we had only one niggle
with the bar it's that its understated aesthetic doesn't really stand out enough
and show the world the bars you chose and in recent years, much like the Model
T, you could have any color you wanted as long as it's black. Well, we managed
to get a hold of some of its Limited Edition Road Handlebars and if you want to
add a touch of Gold or Light Blue to your bike's mix with all of the ENVE
quality still intact, look no further.
When creating the shape of its road handlebars, ENVE didn't
succumb to bizarre angles and tapers in the name of the industry buzzword de
jour, 'ergonomics.' Instead, it simply made a bar that feels great in your
hands. The 127mm drop and 79mm reach allows for easy shifter/brake lever
placement and encourages using the drops more often. Grooves are present to
tuck in the brake and shifter housing into, so after wrapping the bars in your
tape of choice, they go unnoticed. The final design worth a mention is the
integrated bar end plugs which offer a clean finish at the ends and drastically
reduces the chance of lost plugs saving you from the chagrin of an overzealous
USAC official at the line of a mass start event.
These limited edition ENVE road handlebars are available in
three sizes from 40 to 44cm center-to-center at the hoods while the drops flare
2cm wider in each size. The clamp diameter is for 31.8mm stems.
