Ibis launches adjustable-width carbon handlebars

By Toby Hill

SANTA CRUZ, Calif. (BRAIN) — Ibis Cycles has introduced new adjustable-width carbon mountain handlebars that can be run at 750 or 800 millimeters — or widths in between.

The new Lo-Fi (10-millimeter rise) and Hi-Fi (30-millimeter rise) bars use two 25-millimeter-wide aluminum inserts that thread into the ends of the bar. The inserts can also be cut down to run any width in between 750 and 800 millimeters.

Both bars have a 31.8-millimeter clamp diameter. The Lo-Fi weighs 238 grams, and the Hi-Fi is 249 grams. They are backed by a seven-year warranty.

Handlebars are now shipping on complete Ibis bikes spec’d with Shimano XT or SRAM X01 or XX1. They’re also available on SRAM NX and GX builds as an upgrade. Aftermarket availability is set for this fall with an MSRP of $169.99. Replacement inserts will be $15.
