“One size fits all” doesn’t work on handlebars. Bar width is determined by the size of the rider, personal preference and where you ride, but people are often reluctant to cut expensive bars down since it’s a one way change, you can’t put the width back if needed.
Our new Hi-Fi and Lo-Fi handlebars are adjustable between 750mm and 800mm wide. Using two 25mm aluminum inserts that thread into the ends of the bar, you can adjust to your preferred width without permanently cutting the bar. Like our venerable MORON tubing from the 90’s, there is more on the ends of these bars.
You can use the inserts to change between 750 and 800 or cut the replaceable aluminum inserts to any measurement in between. For instance take 10mm off each end for a total 780 width. If things change, put the inserts back in in a couple of minutes, or buy new ones for $15 if you’ve cut the original ones.
The bar comes in two versions, a Lo-Fi 10mm rise and Hi-Fi 30mm rise, both with a 31.8mm clamp. Even with the added adjustability, the bars are still remarkably light. The Hi-Fi weighs 249g. The Lo-Fi comes in at 238g.
The bars are shipping now on XT level builds and higher and are a small upgrade fee for GX and NX builds. The bars will be available aftermarket this Fall and will retail for $169.99. The bars are backed by our seven-year warranty. If it’s our fault, we’ll fix it.
