ENVE RSR Handlebar

Rise and be heard.

ENVE nails the sweet spot between 759 and 761mm with the RSR Handlebar, which clocks in as a race-ready package that also boasts the durability to handle big hits and deep roll overs. Since that iconic branding first began to grace race wheels, ENVE's been setting the standard for carbon fiber design. This bar raises the expectations to a whole new level.

The RSR Bar was developed by riders for riders. Informed by extensive feedback from the trail, its design represents a perfect equilibrium between weight and strength. A mere 194g of impeccable carbon, the Riser Bar is light enough for big climbs yet durable enough for catching big air. At the same time, the wide 760mm stance provides flexible comfort in the dirt, and the nine-degree sweep keeps your wrists in a relaxed, neutral position.

  • A lightweight bar designed for all-mountain comfort and control
  • Slight backsweep for comfortable wrist positioning
  • Ample width allows just the right flex to absorb vibrations

Setting the bar

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Enve offers some of the best carbon products in the cycling industry. This bar is no exception. It is lightweight, stiff, and still compliant. This bar has enough flex which helps to reduce fatigue on long rough descents. The rise and sweep are perfect and help to create a responsive steering feel. At 760mm wide these are ideal for anyone riding singletrack, or racing enduro. Get one and you'll not regret it.

Nice bar

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Needed a little more rise and decided to replace my aluminum bar with carbon. Nice bar with good feel and just the right amount of rise. Nicely marked for cutting as well.

Great Bar

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Been running this bar for the past 2 seasons and have loved it. Great width for my tail bike. The quality and performance is right on par with what you'd expect from something with the name Enve on it.

Great set of bars!!

Put these on my single speed, and couldn't be happier. ENVE engineers in just the right amount of flex, to make these bars super comfortable, and strong at the same time.
Plus, they're ENVE so you get the cool factor, and a crash discount if you ever manage to break 'em!!

Great bar. I'm not sure I have noticed a great deal of different "feel" in comparison with my stock AL bars. Maybe that will come later. What I do find awesome is the width of the bars. Totally the sweet spot. Not so wide that it feels like your knuckles are in danger, but wide enough that you get that extra leverage. I ride a longish travel 29er trail bike, and it is a great addition. I would recommend a bike specific torque wrench with this purchase. I had an automotive torque wrench that I thought would work, but was way off on lower torque specs.

Excellent handlebar

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I paired the ENVE Riser bar with a 60mm megaforce 2 stem. Looks awesome. I previously rode a 740mm bar and 760 is way better. Doesn't ever feel too wide. I feel like my upper body weight is balanced, reach is good, and hands are where they need to be. Plenty of trees to negotiate on my local trails but 760 is just right. Definitely love this handlebar for looks and functionality. Understated yes, but still catches the eye.

Needed reprieve

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

After running 35 clamp bars for 2 years, I needed a change. My hands were getting abused and going numb, and after one ride on these, the issue is resolved. Not enough flex to notice when things get hairy, but enough to keep your hands gripping the bars without fatigue.

doubled up

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I picked up a pair of these for my son and then had bar Enve so had to get a second one for myself. I cut one pair down to 750 for my XC bike and they have been solid. Total confidence in the enve products I've owned but these were the first bars. They have made a really nice ride, particularly if you are coming off of alloy bars. A good carbon handlebar, on any bike, is worth every penny and these are worth it.

Bike bling

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Very nice weight, 760mm is the perfect sweet spot for a trail bike in my opinion, and it is tuned with just enough flex to make it nice and comfy and reduce hand fatigue, without making the steering feel vague.

Light, Stiff but still Compliant

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This bar makes a great finishing piece on almost any bike. While plenty of manufacturers have light weight handlebars, Enve has a unique ride quality to them that definitely reduces fatigue over longer rides. I've had an Enve bar on my last 2 bikes and will have them on future bikes.

Raise the bar!

Got this handlebar with a new bike. A Yeti SB6c. The bar looks great, is very comfortable, and probably is a factor in that the bike is absolutely awesome.

Simply the best.

I tend to write pretty positive reviews at this point in my life. That's because I've tried a lot of crap, found what works, and I try to stick with it.

ENVE is as good as it gets. These are, bar-none (pun intended), the best riser bars on the market. Wide enough to bridge small rivers, they can be cut to your preference or left alone for total control. Pair these with a short stem, and go destroy some personal records on the trail.

Perhaps the best thing about the ENVEs is that while they are incredibly durable, they are also shockingly good at dampening vibration and helping your hands have a fun day on the trail.

I recommend these without any reservations. They're simply the best bars out there.
