If you’re a fan of the vibration damping design in their carbon bars then chances are you’ll be stoked to see OneUp are now offering an alloy version, with the same tech. They’ve also added a direct mount stem to their lineup.
The new Aluminum Handlebar applies the same patented oval shape as their carbon bars bringing increased vertical compliance thereby reducing rider fatique. According to OneUp, the patented oval shape of the mid-section means steering precision is not compromised. Claimed weight is 337g and the intended use is trail, enduro, eMTB and downhill riding.
The new aluminum bar is available in two rise options, that’s 20 or 35mm. Clamping width is 35mm and the bars measure 800mm with an 8° backsweep and 5° upsweep. Also new to their lineup is a matching 45mm direct mount stem, in a 35mm clamping, with zero rise. The stem kit is complete with two 5mm spacers, to tweak the stack height. Local availability is scheduled for August and pricing is, at this stage, to be confirmed.
