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.

FULL DETAILS
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.

    Attention to Detail

    One detail of this bar that I greatly appreciate is the added texture where the hoods are to be placed. On my old Zipp bars, this area was left smooth and I had to crank the bolts down to seemingly dangerous levels for my hoods to stop slipping. The texture on this bar, however, means that you do not have to over-tighten and that your hoods will stay securely in place. Beyond this, these bars are just super comfy! I paired them with the aero stem and experience an incredibly smooth ride while also receiving optimal feedback.

    I’ve used many aluminum and carbon bars over the years on personal road builds. Some have been bad and some good. But these Enve Aero Road Bars are the best by far for me. I have them in 40cm (c-c drops), so quite narrow, but I feel more aero as a result. I’m also not a particularly broad shoulder guy. The flat aero tops are great when hands get tired, or when resting forearms for super aero fake tri-bar position. I’ve got my tops wrapped, so while it may not look as cool, it’s quite functional. Using Lizard Skins bartape which is fairly grippy. The slight bar bump behind the lever hoods is also unique and very functional for yet more hand positions. And the drop flare works great for forearm clearance while sprinting in the drops. Also, built with Enve’s aero road stem, and Garmin out front mount off the unique stem. My build is with Campy Record 12 hydro levers. Photo is older, pre-computer mount, and while still tweaking bar and lever angles.

    Great set of bars, tops are very comfortable, short reach is perfect and the shallow drops with a slight flare are perfect for a long descent. Plus, combining with the clip-on aerobar makes a perfect combination.

    Most Aero of the Aero Bars

    If you are looking for that last bit of gains for your bike, this is the pinnacle of Aero bars. The design of this bar trounces the competition, the narrower hoods put you in a more aero position saving them valuable watts. That combined with a regular width drop for cornering and sprint is pure genius.

    This was the first product I ever got from Enve and it clearly shaped my view of the brand. The bars have become my favorites and my latest bike got equipped with them too. They are extremely comfortably shaped (I just love both the flat tops for a rest and particularly the angle behind the hoods – which are not a natural spot for me on other bars), plenty stiff and surely come with aero credentials. What’s not to love?
    That the scale shows up a few extra grams vs lightweight options is not a factor for me on these as they do everything so well and I can trust them fully.
