UAE Emirates rider Tadej Pogacar is riding a new one-piece ENVE SES Aero Road cockpit, combining the handlebar and stem into a single part.

The Utah-based brand worked with the team and riders to develop the stiffness, weight, and aerodynamics specifically to Pogacar’s wishes, starting the project in January and delivering a finished product for the entire team to use in under four months. And now they’re racing it at the Tour de France.

It’s based on their current SES Aero Road Handlebar, but with a few geometry tweaks Pogacar requested. It also uses the fully internal IN-Route wire and hose routing, but with a twist.

The original IN-Route parts pair separate bar and stem, running all control lines through each, then into a Chris King Aeroset 3 headset. For these, they’re working on making additional spacers and routing options that’ll work with a wider range of headsets and frames, including the Specialized Tarmac. And, we’re guessing from the looks of things, Colnagos, too.

All of those accessories should be available when this new one-piece bar/stem goes on sale later this year.

While official pricing and specs are TBA, ENVE says that they’ve made them in 5mm stem length increments for the team (Tadej is on a 125mm, FYI) and hope to do the same in production, giving all of us the ability to fine tune fit even better than with traditional 10mm-increment stem lengths. They say the weight is around 340g.

Are there any news on this one piece? It would fit my MOG perfectly.

Looks like UAE pulled a quick one on the TDF. You’re supposed to not ride anything that isn’t available within a certain time to the public
