The Renthal Fatbar Carbon 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.
The light weight of this all-new Fatbar Carbon makes it ideally suited for trail bike use, where a super-wide handlebar is required.
The all new Fatbar Carbon retains a market leading light weight, at just 225g. This has been achieved with more efficient use of material, removing any excess to reduce weight, whilst retaining the strength, durability and flex characteristics of the original Fatbar Carbon.
The width has been increased up to a full 800mm. The Fatbar Carbon features proven 7° back sweep / 5° up sweep combination and is available in 10, 20, 30 and 40mm rise options, to suit any bike and any rider preference. All rise options are also available in both 31.8mm and 35mm diameters.
The Renthal Fatbar Carbon has already gained cult status, as the handlebar of choice for World Cup downhill. Three World Cup overall championships and the World Championships gold medal have been won using the Fatbar Carbon, cementing it as one of the most successful race products of all time.
The Fatbar Carbon uses a full UD (uni-directional) carbon construction. Efficient placement and orientation of the uni-directional carbon fibres maximise the strength and fine tune the stiffness of the handlebar.
The UD (uni-directional) carbon fibres are layered and aligned to give specific flex characteristics. The ride-tuned stiffness of the Fatbar Carbon results in incredible control, yet careful tuning gives the perfect level of comfort.
Impact strength is hugely important in a DH race handlebar. This is why the Fatbar Carbon is designed to significantly surpass the EN BMX drop test standard.
