      Comments about Renthal Fatbar Lite Carbon Handlebar:

      I have this strange habit of buying frames that are way too small. Maybe I just like them twitchy? Anyways, the need came about to stretch out my cockpit a bit without introducing flex. Extra head tube spacers weren't cutting it, and riser stems were just okay.

      Enter the 40mm rise carbon Fatbar Lite.

      It does what I needed it to, perfectly. It's stiff (more than the narrow flat aluminum Ritchey bar it replaced), but transmits less chatter than the aluminum. The alignment grid is clever, and I appreciated the texture in the stem-mount area when installing.

      Somehow I've managed to hit 3 trees since installing this. Not getting caught between trees, full-on "oh look, there's a tree here" collisions, with nary a scratch.

      I am a little wary of the ultimate durability of the carbon fiber construction of the bar. So far, it's been indestructible, but most of us are familiar with how aluminum fails. I've only seen videos of carbon failures, and never in such a crucial place. We'll see how it deals with the abuse it's sure to receive in the coming months.

        Comments about Renthal Fatbar Lite Carbon Handlebar:

        This is a great handlebar. For me the width of 740mm is ideal for my trail bike. This bar really mutes a lot of the trail chatter, and is very light. I have the 30mm rise and for me it has been perfect for the type of trails where I live. Highly recommended.

          I installed this handlebar on my Trek Remedy 9.8. I like the rise on these better than the stock Bontrager bar that came from the factory. The new bar is a tad wider than the stock bar which I like. The steering feels a little snappier and the bar is definitely stiffer than the factory unit.So far so good.
