When it came time to redesign its mountain handlebarofferings, ENVE Composites chose to build and categorize its bars much like itdoes with its wheelsets. Riders have different wants and needs depending onbike setup, riding style, aspirations, and terrain. From the rail-thin,hardtail riding, flat bar XC racer to the big hit World Cup, dual crown,high-rise set, ENVE has a bar for every occasion designed with the utmostdurability, lightweight construction, and ride tuned feel for every occasion.The handlebar we have here, the M6, achieves the nexus that the modern trailrider is after. The M6 falls under ENVE's trail-rated lineup and places anemphasis on dropping grams and features a carbon laminate that helps tominimize the trail chatter that can start to accumulate on those 4+ hourbackwoods epics. As you probably imagined, the M6 is recommended to pair withthe M6 stem and wheelset which are all suited for 100-140mm trail bikes. Tworise options are available so you can achieve your desired ride position: alower 7. 5mm and a mid-rise 25mm version. Both bars come in at 780mm wide andfeature a tried-and-true 9-degrees of backsweep and 5-degrees of upsweep and a31. 8mm clamp, helping to preserve a compliant ride with a responsive flexprofile and keeps the weight low. All of the bars are developed by riders and racers and thefeedback from internal testers and world-class athletes hone the bars' everydetail. In fact, so important is the ride feel that ENVE instills in each andevery bar, it's reduced the amount of recommended cut lengths so the bars rideat its intended flex profile while still passing strength and stiffnessrequirements with flying colors without having to overbuild the bars to satisfya wider range of cuts.
