Those crazy Canadians find all the best places to freeride, and Race Face seems to have found the other end of the rainbow on their latest two-wheels adventure. You know, the one that has a pot o’ gold components…and every other color of the rainbow?

With seven colors, the 2011 Turbine handlebar should undoubtedly be able to match something on your bike. Yes, there’s pink for Dicky and Evan, purple for the retro geeks and lots more. Funny thing, there’s no silver.

Weights range from 170g to 245g, all within aggressive XC weight guidelines, but plenty strong enough for North Shore huckin’ and chuckin’. Check out all the colors and the official PR after the break…

PRESS RELEASE: Race Face is proud to announce the newest additions to our handlebar line, the Turbine riser and flat bars. Available in more colors than a box of Crayolas (black, red, blue, green, purple, orange, and pink), we also offer a wide variety of widths and rises.

The ¾” rise is our most popular version, coming in at 680mm wide with a 6 degree rearward sweep, but if you’re into the far ends of the fit spectrum, we’ve got you covered there, as well: a 1” riser at 680mm, an XC-oriented flat bar at 600mm, or a 700mm flat bar with an easy-ridin’ 8 degree sweep. 29er’s rejoice!

Weight varies by model, but they’re all feather light. Starting at just 170g for the 600mm flat bar and maxing out at only 245g for the 1” riser, they won’t weigh you down on long treks in backcountry or quick rips down your favorite track.

The material is a cold drawn, 7075-T6 alloy that’s subsequently shot peened and internally butted, resulting in an increased fatigue life and an optimal strength-to-weight ratio. Translation: they’re built to last.

Available in stores worldwide, stop in to your local shop to pick one up today.

That’s right Dickie, I made you scroll all the way down to see the pink one.
