Deity says their new 35mm bore Skywire handlebars will enhance your performance, with super stiffness and enhanced damping properties increasing time on the bike by reducing arm pump. We have the details but first, feast your eyes on Blenki’s new edit.

Deity Skywire 35mm Carbon and Aluminium Handlebars

Deity has released a full carbon and aluminium range of the Skywire handlebars, with the newer 35mm bore and available in 15mm or 25mm rise options in matte black with graphics in 9 different colorways; Stealth, Chrome, White, Red, Green, Blue, Orange, Turquoise and Bronze.

Unidirectional carbon lay-up provides that all important stiffness

The Skywire features a 9 degree bend and 5 degree upsweep. The 15mm riser weighs in at 222 grams 25mm riser weighs 226 grams.

Grips ends are textured for enhanced traction

The Skywire handlebars, designed for enduro and trail riding come 800mm wide, with handy markings at either end to help you chop them down to the optimal size.

Texture is added at the bar-stem interface for added friction on the clamping surface

Deity said, “Notoriously known for being overly stiff and unforgiving, the 35mm ‘standard’ has taken over the handlebar industry over the past years and many may wonder why we were so late to the party in offering a deep range of 35mm options.

We believe in making every product we offer count and to do it right can take time, many revisions that never see the light of day, and testing protocols that we believe are the benchmark.

To us, it is all about the feel of a handlebar. Having stiffness in the correct points to aid in front wheel tracking, but allowing the bar to have enough flex and range of deflection to keep you on the bike for the entire day.

Our goal with the new 35mm carbon and aluminium handlebars was to achieve that proper balance of realistic weight, compliance, strength, fit and finish, and a feel indicative to the Deity brand.”


The Skywire handlebars, backed by a 2-year limited warranty and a lifetime crash replacement plan, are available now direct from Deity for $169.99 (carbon).
