BREDBURY, England (BRAIN) — In response to demand from cross-country and trail riders for zero-rise handlebars, Renthal has introduced the Fatbar Lite Zero Rise and Fatbar Lite Carbon Zero Rise.
The U.K. brand said that following market research, it determined that a 780-millimeter width would give trail riders all the width they need and give cross-country riders the option to cut the bar down to a narrower width.
“To align with all our handlebar ranges, the 9-degree sweep and the location of the bend from the center put the riders hands in the same angular location from the stem as with all our other handlebars,” Renthal stated. “We also matched the ride characteristics of the Fatbar Lite and Fatbar Lite Carbon to give the same great ride quality.”
The Fatbar Lite Carbon Zero Rise features a UD carbon construction and a 31.8-millimeter clamp diameter, and weighs 190 grams. Suggested retail: $164.95.
The Fatbar Lite Zero Ride is made from 7-series aluminum, is available in Rental AluGold or black hard-anodized finish, has a 31.8-millimeter clamp diameter and weighs 270 grams. Suggested retail: $84.95.
