With Renthal's new 35mm handlebar line, they saw the flex characteristics being of optimum importance. For all their 35mm handlebars they have matched their flex characteristics to the 31.8mm equivalent.
All 35mm bars have the same ride quality that Renthal handlebars have become synonymous with.
They have achieved the same ride quality with no loss of strength or durability at a very similar weight. The only exception to this is the Fatbar, where they’ve reduced the weight significantly, whilst maintaining the same level the strength, durability as the smaller diameter handlebar.
Importantly, they have increased the width of all handlebars by 20mm, taking the Fatbar Carbon 35 to 800mm.
The Renthal FatBar Carbon 35 is the ultimate DH race handlebar.
The product of an intense and in-depth research and development program, this ride-tuned handlebar combines the ultimate blend of strength, stiffness and shock absorption.
This is achieved at a full 800mm width and at a market leading 225g weight.
This handlebar comes in at 800mm and is approved for downhill racing and use with a twin crown fork.
The Fatbar Carbon is an all-new handlebar, not just a wider version of the Fatbar Lite Carbon. they followed the same in depth R&D process with this handlebar as with their previous Fatbar Lite Carbon, with the ride-feel of the bar being of the utmost importance.
Renthal's aluminium Fatbar has been hugely popular and successful, with six World Championship gold medals having been won using this handlebar.
Renthal's mission was to match the ride-feel of the aluminum Fatbar but in a much, much lighter weight carbon package. With extensive R&D testing and data acquisition work, they have proven that this has been achieved. A downhill race handlebar with superb ride-feel characteristics and incredible strength. And all this in a 800mm bar which weighs a mere 225g!
This Fatbar Carbon 35 is much more than the bar of choice for downhill racers. Modern trail riders, enduro racers and 29'er / 27.5in riders are demanding wide bars at XC race weight. The Fatbar Carbon 35 exactly matches those demands and is certain be the 'must have' handlebar for this huge market of riders.
Following their philosophy of giving the rider spec choice, Renthal have committed to four different rises - 10, 20, 30 and 40mm. No other carbon handlebar brand offers this level of choice to give the rider such a precise fit.
