2023 Enve SES Aero Road Handlebar
The SES AR Handlebar reveals our vision for the future of road handlebar shaping and design. Purpose built for the modern road rider, the SES AR handlebar features compound flared drops for confident handling, aerodynamic shaping with internal/external routing options for clean airflow and aesthetics, and a carbon laminate that has been tuned for responsive handling without sacrificing comfort.
Road riding has evolved over thelast decade. Thanks to disc brakes, wide rims, and high volumetires, road riders are able to venture from the main road to thebackroad in complete confidence. While brake and wheel technologyhas driven frame and tire manufacturers to rethink road framedesign, we took a close look at the handlebar, your primary contactpoint on the bike, to reimagine the ultimate handlebar for anyroad, and any event. Any product that bears the SES nomenclaturemust deliver a real world aerodynamic advantage. In the case ofthe SES AR Handlebar, the cross section of the bar top hasbeen developed in CFD and proven in the wind tunnel to reduce drag.Hidden cable/wire routing enhance drag reduction while delivering aclean aesthetic. AR means the handlebar will deliver comfort andconfidence over any road surface. Borrowing design cues from oursuccessful SES Aero Road bar, Compact Road bar, and G Seriesbar, the SES AR Handlebar features compound flared drops thatprovide a wider stance for technical riding and descending whilemaintaining easy access to the controls. We fully expect that thisbar we've dreamt of for years will quickly gain popularity andestablish itself as the benchmark for road handlebars.
