RideFarr has been introducing a number of innovative components when it comes to endurance mountain biking and their latest option seems like a logical progression. After launching the endurance MTB bar, and then following that up with their Aero Bolt-On, the new Aero MTB bar combines both for the best of both worlds.
Looking just like their Endurance MTB bar with the Aero Bolt-on added but in one piece, the new Aero MTB bar is an interesting piece of equipment. Built with a full carbon construction, the bar offers the typical MTB hand positioning as well as multiple hand positions at the center of the bar for more aerodynamic riding. This should make the bar ideal for stage racing or MTB marathon racing where long stints in the saddle will have you looking for options to change up your positioning.
At the front of the aero add on, you’ll find a rounded section for installing your GPS or light, and the bar uses a typical 31.8mm clamp diameter for use with a traditional stem.
Overall, the bar measures 720mm wide with the aero portion measuring 148mm x 134mm. It’s not listed, but we’d assume that these will have the same 9° backsweep as the Endurance MTB bar.
Claimed weight is listed as 239g which includes gripper pads for your palms at the center of the bar, and the bars will retail for $240 (plus $12 shipping to the U.S., EU, and Australia). Expect them to be available by mid-April.
