ENVE’s been on a roll lately with all the sweet new bits. The latest from the Ogden composite wiz, the SES AR handlebar, drawn from its road and gravel siblings, might just be the perfect all-around bar.
The $375 handlebar comes in five sizes from 38cm to 46cm and features a flat wing-like top for better aerodynamics. Not only is it aero, but the shape also helps to dampen vibration for better comfort. The bar is designed for both internal and external cable routing for flexibility.
As for the drops, the SES AR has a compact geometry with 76mm reach and 127mm drop across the board plus a 23.5mm compound-flared drop that sits somewhat between their well-regarded SES aero road bar and the dramatically-flared G-Series gravel bar.
As the definition between road and gravel become increasingly blurred, we feel like this could perhaps be best of the both worlds especially for city-dwellers who spend time on the road with the occasional dirt jaunts.
The SES AR is available today and comes with lifetime incident protection and a five year limited warranty.
