Neil Donoghue, a former world cup pro, now runs an awesome coaching and works with companies like Renthal developing components. While we’re not sure exactly what he’s helping test at the moment, we did spy a set of carbon bars on his beautiful Santa Cruz Bronson enduro race bike.

According to his build spec, he’s sporting a 740mm wide Fatbar lite Carbon proto mated to a 40mm Duo Proto Stem. We love the idea of an all black Renthal handlebar, rather than the companies signature gold. No word on future availability, but we’re reaching out to Renthal for more details.

*UPDATED* with better pictures after the break.

Love the looks of the carbon bar.
Now I hope they will make it available too for the 780mm bars. And wide-narrow chain rings.
