Chapter2 has announced a new one-piece carbon handlebar aimed squarely at gravel and adventure racing. The MANA-GRVL features a conservative 12° flare at the drops, and is available in six different size options varying both effective stem length and width.

Chapter2 MANA-GRVL

Chapter2 have long been proponents of the one-piece drop-bar design, quoting the improved aerodynamic properties of a seamless integrated bar and stem combo. They offer various one-piece carbon options for road, but this is their first offering to the gravel contingent. 

The tops have a 31.8mm diameter allowing for the attachment of clip-on TT Bars and other accessories

For improved comfort and bike handling over rougher terrain, the MANA-GRVL is much wider than the MANA2 UD and MANA Tongariro road bars, the narrowest starting at 469mm. The sizing options are as follows:

  • 80mm x 469mm
  • 90mm x 480mm
  • 100mm x 491mm
  • 110mm x 502mm
  • 120mm x 513mm
  • 130mm x 524mm

The MANA-GRVL was designed with the AO in mind; Chapter2’s Gravel/Adventure frameset. It isn’t specific to Chapter2 frames, though; it can work with any frame with a 1-1/8” fork steerer such as the RERE, TERE, and HURU where the cables and hoses enter from the underside of the bar.

All sizes of the Chapter2 MANA-GRVL one-piece gravel handlebar retail at $499 USD and are available now direct from Chapter2.

Kinda bummed that the flare is only at the drops. Having the hoods angled is very comfortable for my hands.

$500. That’s more than I’m willing to spend on any bar/stem combo. Not having the option to adjust anything for that kind of dough is also a definite no go.

The width increasing with length seems…. really dumb.
