Enve releases its latest handlebar, the DH. Deemed to be the perfect bar for extreme downhill mountain bike racing and riding, the DH has 800mm width, 9 degree sweep and weighs 225 grams. It has a 23mm rise and 31.8mm clamp.

Founder Jason Schiers explains how the DH idea came to be, “We have been spending a lot of time with guys riding downhill, four-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.”

When asked about the material used for the DH bar, Schiers adds, “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.”

On what is in store for Enve in the years to come, Schiers further says, “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.”
