ENVE DH bar released
ENVE COMPOSITES LAUNCHES NEW CARBON DOWNHILL HANDLEBAR
September 20, 2010 – Ogden, Utah, USA –
As Enve Composites continues to wow the mountain bike market with cutting edge carbon technology; new from the Ogden, Utah based company is a super wide downhill bar. At 800mm wide, the aptly named ‘DH’ is the result of months of prototype testing to find the perfect bar for more aggressive downhill racing and riding.
“We have been spending a lot of time with guys riding Downhill, 4-Cross and Jump bikes and the growing theme has been wider is better. So the introduction of a 800mm bar addresses the width needs of anyone.” said ENVE Composites founder Jason Schiers. “Carbon on dirt still presents a formidable challenge to overcome, but as with all of the products we make, we expect that durability in addition to ride quality is a given.”
Enve’s year of World Cup downhill racing was not only successful in bringing the company the first ever win on carbon wheels, it also offered insight into how far the riders could push the performance of their components. Schiers added, “2010 showed us how far we would have to push ourselves to come up with responses to the demands of the pro circuit, and the DH bar is the beginning of those efforts that are now coming to the market for everyone to enjoy.”
With cutting guides at 5mm increments, the DH features a 9° sweep, 23mm rise and, staying true to Enve’s ability to produce a ‘best in show’ featherweight right out the gate, it weighs in at just 225g.
Like all Enve components, the DH carries a two year limited warranty.
