Description

Enve is easily the most sought-for name in carbon. Known for their prowess in lightweight design, Enve has revolutionized the field of carbon engineering in a short amount of time. The Enve Road Handlebar is the only road handlebar in Enve's impressive catalog of components, for a reason: perfection. At a svelte 205 grams, the Road Bar is stiff, comfortable, and so gorgeous that you won't want to wrap them. The Enve Road Bar is what you get for the bike that has it all.

In creating the Enve Road handlebar, Enve didn't incorporate bizarre angles and shapes in the name of the industry buzzword de jour, 'ergonomics.' Instead, it simply made a bar that works. With a 144mm drop and 85mm reach(traditional), or a 127mm drop and 79mm reach (short and shallow), every contour of the Enve Road handlebar is designed to fit the hand. The bar shape permits custom brake lever placement and drop positions, and features recessed cable routing. The Road handlebar also incorporates a sophisticated pair of integrated bar ends. With its 100% handmade carbon fiber design, the Road handlebar is both lightweight and exceptionally rigid.

The Enve Road Handlebar is available in three sizes from 40cm to 44cm. Each size is available in a Traditional version or a Short and Shallow version. The Road handlebar is available in the color Black, and is only compatible with 31.8mm clamp diameter stems.

  • A classic, elegant drop bar for everyday training
  • Full carbon fiber construction absorbs road vibrations
  • Carefully-shaped for hand comfort on long rides

So Far So Good!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I've only used these bars a few times since I've purchased them, but so far I like everything about them.

I would also like to add that the people at Competitive Cyclists are the best. Scott G. was very helpful and when I purchased these bars. I wish that the bike shops near me had more employees like him and all the people at Competitive Cyclists.

Thank you!

Favorite road bar

    This is, hands-down, my favorite handlebar for road bikes. It's unbelievably light and helps create a very smooth ride. My favorite combo is to pair it with the Enve stem... I haven't found a lighter, smoother cockpit to date!

    Upgrade now, thank me later.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I knew I was getting a light bar when I ordered, but I was not expecting the cardboard box in which it is packaged to weigh more than the bar itself.
    I use this in combination with the Enve stem and computer mount. Not only is it light, but it is comfortable. I got the short/shallow 44. The combination with Lizard Skins 2.5mm tape is perfect for me! The road chatter is minimized, but the responsiveness is alert. I feel like I can really strangle-hold the bar and yank it through a sprint.

    Awesome Bar!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have put a few thousand miles on this bar, and used it on a century ride. The bar is fantastic. I upgraded from a Cannondale c3 bar that came stock on my CAAD10. For me the tops are perfectly shaped, and the drops provide easy access to the controls, and also keep my wrist in a comfortable position. I am thankful this bar does not have internal cable routing. Internal routing does look nice, but its a pain to install, service, and adjust the position of the shifters . Proper cable routing on the handlebar has a significant impact on your shifting performance and the smoothness of your brakes. So its certainly important to pay attention to. I recommend that you purchase the Dura Ace shift and brake cable kits with this bar so you can have housing with that has the correct length.

    Only thing I wish this bar had was tick marks on the mounts so you can easily adjust the angle of the bar and make sure both shifters are in the same position. You can measure, but it is difficult to measure over the curves.

    You choose compact or traditional? What weight?

    Debating on these or the aero bars for my new Tarmac build. I would say I would be swinging more towards comfort than aero, but I really like the aero bars!

    One nice thing about the Aero bars is the flat top to switch up your hand position.

    Having tried both, the aero bars are actually a little more comfortable as they have slightly more deflection (flex). Not enough to make you feel "soft" at the front end, but they do soak up a little more road buzz.

    Great Bars

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Super stiff, super light, and my favorite thing about them is they really reduce road vibration. The oval shape makes for comfortable hand position while climbing and out on the grips. I'm very happy with the purchase a great product from enve. 40mm short and shallow

    Which one have You chosen? Short and shallow (Compact) or Traditional?

    Love them...

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Just installed these along with an Enve stem on my Pinarello ROKH. I never really cared for the flat top profile of the Most bars that came on the bike. The short and shallow drop on these is perfect and much more comfortable. Love the slightly oval profile of the tops, much more comfortable for me than the flat top bars. The finish is first rate, the integrated bar end caps ensure a nice clean installation of the tape and the cable routing is well done. I've found they do eliminate a lot of the road buzz that was coming through the original aluminum bars, so I'm very happy with these on every level. A top rate product...wouldn't change a thing (although a lower price would be nice!)

    YET ANOTHER PERFECT PRODUCT FROM ENVE

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    ENVE has long since become my favorite bike company. American designed, manufactured and sold (in UTAH), by cyclists, for cyclists. Obviously, ENVE is best known for their wheels but don't nap on their quality carbon components. I have owned several road bars...everything from aluminum to carbon and the ENVE bars are THE BEST I have touched, ridden and/or owned. It starts with the bend. Obviously, this is personal preference but I prefer the short and shallow. Next, the integrated bar ends are a nice touch that makes your bar tape disappear. Finally and most important the ride! They are LIGHT, STIFF but yet compliant. They mellow out the rough stuff but remain firm on tough, out-of-the-saddle efforts. I am 5'11" and 170lbs and run a 42" and after approx 4000 miles on them, I feel it is the perfect width. I love these so much on my BMC Mike Nelson (ext 4076) helped me build that I insisted we included the same bars on my recent Niner BSB. These are not cheap but like I always say about ENVE products: if you can afford ENVE, you can't afford to not ride ENVE!!

    YET ANOTHER PERFECT PRODUCT FROM ENVE

    These bars are not made in Utah, theyre made in china.

    Sorry, this is for " jegsy". What's with the china biz? They can't tell you the stuff is made in UTAH if its not. That's fraud. I'm not talking about customers. When I bought these, I did the research. What's your deal?

    Jon G is right. Enve admits as much on their website. Wheels in USA, and components overseas (http://enve.com/journal/u-s-made-by-choice/)
    "We make no excuses about the fact that our components are made overseas. We simply do not have the capacity to take on both. However, we are actively working towards more component manufacturing in the U.S. and the Mountain Stem is the most prominent result of this effort."

    Great handlebar

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These bars are expensive, and I debated about them for a while. I'm glad I decided to go for it. By the specs, they are similar in dimension to other compact bars, but there are some key differences. First, the vibration dampening effect is quite noticeable. (I ride a lot on gravel.) Second, there seems to be a very slight slope to the bars (i.e. not perfectly horizontal on the top) that seems to make my positioning feel very natural no matter where I place my hands. Finally, these seem to run slightly wider than other bars of the same spec, which I like.

    Best Bar I've Ever Ridden

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've been fortunate enough to own several carbon bars, and several really good ones at that. Previously, ZIPP Countour SL bars were probably my favorite. That all changed when I got my hands on an Enve handlebar and stem. Before even riding the setup, I couldn't help but notice that the finish was far superior to any other cockpit I've seen. The paint work is immaculate, and the tolerances for the stem/bar interface is snug but not tight. In terms of the ride, the bars are stiff and efficient, but dissipate road chatter fantastically well. There is a lot of buzz about deflection in bicycle magazine product reviews, and in most cases you are forced to choose between a more compliant bar with greater deflection to absorb bumps, and a stiffer bar with better power transfer. This is a no compromise option, which I suppose should be expected at that price point. The cable routing is nicely done, and the bar end caps are a nice flourish.

    Can you use clip-ons with the bar?

    Can you use clip-ons with the bar?

    According to ENVE, the clamp area is 105 mm wide on these bars. If your stem is 40 mm wide, you would have just over 30 mm of clamping area on either side of the stem for aero extensions.

    Light as a feather, strong as an ox

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    What a difference this made!!! Awesome handlebar, it really helped level me out and shed probably 6-7 ounces off of my bike weight. It is a little pricey, but if you got some extra cash and wanna update, I'd recommend this one for sure.
