We've built a lot of bikes with ENVE carbon bars and stems over the years, in fact probably more than any other brand. There's a good reason for this, they're brilliantly thought out and made with superb quality and attention to detail.
ENVE have carried over their experience and expertise with carbon bars into this new Gravel/Adventure model. The strength and comfort you expect from an ENVE bar is present and correct, and the shape has been carefully chosen to allow multiple hand positions and maximum control.
As bike fit specialists one of the things we're most pleased to see is a comprehensive range of size options, from 42cm right up to 48cm (measured centre to centre, at the hoods). The extra width is valuable on a gravel bike for optimum control. We're also fans of the flare to the drops, which hits that Goldilocks spot - not too extreme, but enough to give you a sensible amount of freedom when riding in the drops.
ENVE don't produce a gravel-specific stem - they don't need to! Their regular road stem is plenty strong and light enough for gravel/adventure use, and we've seen many of them out in the field over the years standing up to some serious use. So pair these bars with the regular ENVE stem and you have the perfect combo for "more than road".
Similar to our gravel wheels - we saw a need in the gravel world for a carbon gravel handlebar that didn't exist. We know from our experience riding and racing gravel that the right amount of flare in the drops can provide more control and confidence in nearly every situation where riding in the drops is preferred.
From our experience riding mountain bikes we know that wide handlebars also improve control and confidence. For this reason, the G Series Handlebar is available in widths ranging from 42cm to 48cm measured centre to centre in the hoods.
Our experience riding road bikes and developing road handlebars for world tour road racers has helped us create a gravel handlebar that is ergonomically comfortable for long hours in the saddle.
Our experience designing carbon fibre laminates has allowed us to refine the G Series Handlebar to absorb and damp inputs from the trail, minimizing upper body fatigue. The G Series bar was made because we ride, and as riders, we know what makes for a better gravel ride experience.
