Just because the Ibis Hi-Fi Handlebar is constructed of Carbon does not mean it skimps on durability. The Hi-Fi Carbon Handlebar is so strong it wrecked the tests, and it only weighs in at 225 grams! Convenient cut-down markings allow handlebar width to be cut down as desired. The subtle, low profile graphics of the Hi-Fi Handlebar makes for one sleek, handsome addition.

Comments about Ibis Bicycles Ibis Hi Fi Carbon Bars:
I tried these bars out on a whim and WOW are they great… I am running them with a Thomson X4 stem and the combo is ridiculously stiff. These bars sold me on carbon MTB bars. While these bars are definitely a little heavier than other carbon bars, they make up for the slight weight penalty by being some of the most ridiculously stiff bars I've ever ridden. They still have the forgiving dampening characteristics of carbon, but when it gets time to wrestle them around in the chunks, they don't flex in scary ways like weight weenie XC carbon bars. A big part of that stiffness is the stem, though. Paired with a significantly stiff stem (like the Thomson), these bars are straight up beastly, and solid enough for endure riding. The ends are definitely thicker to hold up to lock-on grips, which is a big plus (I've seen lock-ons kill carbon bars, it ain't pretty).
I don't have an Ibis, and I don't enjoy cross-branding, but these bars are wider, cheaper and nicer-looking than the Thomson brand carbon bars. The Ibis branding turned out to be a non-issue, as the graphics on these bars are quietly ghosted-on, and are really only visible when they catch the midday sun in a very aesthetically pleasing fashion. They look great on the bike and would match a number of different types of bikes, making them good bars for people who routinely switch up frames and need a pair of bars that can go from bike to bike. Most people don't, but it's nice to have the option.
