If you’re suffering from a lack of titanium in your life, Why Cycles is here to help. Of course, one answer would be to buy one of their titanium frames, but even if you don’t own a Why Cycle, there’s a new way to add some Why Titanium to your ride. Their latest accessory (which can also be added to their builds) is a titanium handlebar.

Crafted from grade 9, 3/2.5 titanium, this flat bar should be a perfect match for Why models like the S7, Wayward, even the new Big Iron. But with a standard 31.8mm clamp, it could also be at home on any bike where a 780mm wide, 255g titanium riser bar is desirable. Offered in one model with a 9° backsweep, and 4° upsweep, the bar has a 10mm rise and sells for $249.99. If you’re buying a complete bike, the bars will run an extra $100 on the Eagle XX1 build, or $170 on the Eagle GX1 build.

If you need even more titanium, there’s another option from Why as well. Starting soon, the new Cane Creek eeWings titanium cranks will be available as an upgrade on all S7 and Wayward complete bikes. The 400g ti cranks should be a pretty sweet upgrade, with a cost of $670 on the X01 kit, or $600 on the XX1 kit.

Is Why manufacturing these handlebars in the US or are they just rebranded products from an overseas manufacturer?

Hello- my name is Adam and I’m the owner here at Why Cycles. Just wanted to clarify this- we do manufacture our products overseas at a small mom-and-pop style factory, but we 100% develop and own all of our designs. We went through 4 different prototypes of this handlebar and settled on the current design after quite a bit of ride testing and ISO-certification testing. We own our own molds and design for this bar, and the actual products are manufactured overseas (very similar to any mainstream carbon frame or component company). We have some information about our manufacturing process here: http://www.whycycles.com/about-us/ And please feel free to call or email our company anytime to learn more about our manufacturing and testing process at 801-698-3678 or contact@whycycles.com. Thanks!

Great price. Way less expensive than the Thomsons. Ti Bars are an amazing comfort upgrade.
