Something to hang onto.
Painstakingly developed to answer to DH-level abuse day in and day out, the Renthal Fatbar Carbon 35 Handlebar represents one of Renthal's first forays into 35mm bars. 35mm, in case you haven't heard, is poised to become the next handlebar standard for your dirt-devouring dream machine, and it brings the promise of increased stiffness and rigidity for your cockpit.
Renthal's Fatbar Carbon comes with charmed genetics; it's built using unidirectional carbon fiber, in which Renthal engineers place carbon fiber in a uniform layup to maximize structural integrity. This careful construction method allowed Renthal to engineer some flex into the bars as well; while rigidity is important, having a little give goes a long way towards retaining feeling in your hands after a few hours on the trails. As you roost berms, rally over dirt walls, and blast through rock gardens, the Fatbar Carbon will handle it all, without weighing down your frame. Its 800mm stance orients you in the kind of stable, elbows-up position you'll want on flowy descents, and Renthal coats the stem clamp area of the bars in an abrasive finish to ensure zero movement at the point your stem and bars interact.
