WHAT IT IS
An aerodynamically optimized road drop handlebar featuring the latest in electric drivetrain compatibility that will help you go faster through careful handlebar shaping and reducing the rider’s frontal area.
WHO IT’S FOR
Road cyclists and short course triathletes looking for maximum aero benefits.
WHY WE MADE IT
Your body accounts for the majority of the aerodynamic drag while riding. In order to achieve the most gains in terms of aero efficiency, one must first look at their position. The SES Aero Road Bar is proven in the wind-tunnel as not only a very fast bar in itself but also one that puts the rider into a more aerodynamic position. The SES Aero Road Bar also features a unique compact geometry, thoughtful ergonomics, and ENVE’s Integrated Bar End Plugs.
The Smart ENVE System (SES) Aero Road Bar is made from 100% uni-directional carbon fiber and is the stiffest, most race oriented handlebar in the ENVE handlebar product line. The SES road bar features internal routing for mechanical and electronic systems to further save valuable watts. To further the integration with electronic groups, the bar now accommodates the housing of a junction box in the bar end. The shape of the bar is wind-tunnel and CFD tested for aero efficiency. The bulk of aero gains are made by putting the rider’s body in a fast position which can be maintained for long periods of time without sacrificing power output. Improved rider positioning is achieved by keeping the top of the bar narrow to naturally ease riders into a more aero position. The drops of the handlebar are flared for wrist clearance and confident handling in technical sprints, criteriums and descents.
