Description

A taste of WC-winning flavor.

Those who dabble in both motocross and the pedal-type of bicycle activities will likely be familiar with the Renthal name, having been producing some of the winningest handlebars in motocross out of the factory in Manchester, UK, for several decades now. Since moving into mountain biking in 2010, the brand has claimed no fewer than six world championships, primarily in the world of Downhill, and the Renthal Fatbar is precisely what those athletes were riding to win them.

The Fatbar strikes that ergonomic sweetspot that so many bars come close to hitting but don't. Coming in at 360 grams spread across 780 millimeters, the bar's seven-degree backsweep and five-degree upsweep are just about perfect and take zero time to get used to. It's constructed of 7000-series aluminum, and tapered and balanced to optimize it for a superb blend of strength and low weight. The shot-peened finish, where millions of tiny steel pellets are fired at the bar, lends the bar its textured surface but also notably increases the bar's fatigue life, as does the hard anodizing process that also gives it its distinct gold finish. In short, the bar will last through many bikes, which is why the graphics are chemically applied and then over cured onto it, ensuring that they're not going to flake or fade as do so many others.

The Renthal Fatbar is 780mm wide and comes in four different levels of rise: 10mm, 20mm, 30mm, and 38mm. It weighs approximately 360 grams, give or take a few, depending on which you choose. The bar has a seven-degree backsweep and a five-degree upsweep, and comes only with the Gold finish.

My Go-To

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Handlebars are a personal thing, and personally, I've yet to find anything I like better than Renthal's OG Fatbar. They have a touch less back sweep than some other bars, which helps to keep elbows in an aggressive position. They're available in plenty of sizes to help fine-tune your fit. They have a pleasant, if somewhat firm, flex to them, which lends a solid feel to the bike's front end. And they're immensely strong, which equates to peace of mind, the value of which can hardly be overstated. Of course, nothing is perfect. They are heavy, and only available in gold. Neither is a significant issue, ATMO. I've owned four sets to date, and that number will undoubtedly continue to grow.

I love these bars, prior to these I had a flat set of 800 mm bars. Love the width and the rise of these 780 mm bars, have allowed me to better attack corners in a better position over the front of the bike. I have less front tire slippage and better traction. They look great too and match my Fox front fork will buy again.

The standard

Ride like Gwin!

    Renthal has been a dominant bar in the downhill world for quite some time. The gold coating makes a statement and lets people know that you are ready to rip. I went with the 30 mm rise for some extra height and I really dig them. The sweep feels natural and relaxed. 780mm feels right for me, but if you want to go skinnier just take a hacksaw to them.

    Renthal!

    Coming from a background in dirt bikes I was excited to see Renthal enter the mountain bike space. This company makes great products and has been for many, many years. The quality is evident in their mountain bike line and I'm proud to use their products on both my motorized and non-motorized 2-wheelers.
