ENVE Introduces Gravel Handlebar and Fork

ENVE expands their gravel specific product line by launching the new G Series Handlebar and Fork. Each product specifically developed for off-road drop bar applications, promising to deliver an improved ride experience for performance oriented gravel riders and racers.

ENVE G Series Gravel Bar

The Gravelbars are nothing short of wide. The top of the bar is made as wide as possible allowing for a comfortable and stable hand position on the top of the bars without interference from the bar as it transitions with a tight bend to the controls and drops.

ENVE G Series Gravel Bars offer a variety of grip positions

The most notable feature on the G Series Handlebar is the compound flare of the drops that result in each handlebar size measuring 12cm wider from center to center than at the hoods. This wide position creates a strong and stable base for riders when descending or riding in the drop position. In addition to the additional width, there are two unique full-purchase hand positions in the drops, one low for relaxed riding, and one high for riding where access to the controls is required.

Key Features:

  • Unique ergonomics for gravel specific application

  • Increased flare in drops for added comfort and control

  • Flex profile engineered for comfort on rougher roads

  • Shimano Di2 compatible internal routing ports

  • Weighs 248-281g

The new gravel handlebar resets the consideration set for how a gravel bike can feel and handle. We tested nearly all the handlebars on the market that have been classified for use on gravel or cross bikes and simply began making a list of what we liked and disliked. We collectively agreed that we needed more width on top, and that having flare in the drops provides real control and confidence when done properly. Ultimately, like most ENVE products, we ended up making the product we wanted, but couldn’t find elsewhere in the market.
— Jake Pantone, VP of Product and Consumer Experience

ENVE began test riding the new G Series bar and fork in early 2018 to dial in the carbon laminate and ride characteristics. In addition to the aforementioned features, the G Series Handlebar is plumbed for electronic shifting, is available in four sizes ranging from 42cm to 48cm, and includes a wider clamping area that accommodates for accessories ranging from lights to clip-on extensions. The bar has been shaped for ergonomic comfort and performance with the only round areas being those used in zones where clamping is required.

ENVE G Series Gravel FORK

ENVE’s new G Series fork, like the handlebar, is designed to meet the needs of modern gravel riders, racers, and frame builders. The G Series Fork features a 50mm rake and improved clearance for tires up to 50mm. In addition, the G Series fork is fender compatible, utilizes flat-mount standard brake caliper compatibility, and weighs in at 520 grams.

Updated across the board, our Gravel Fork delivers upgraded performance for any gravel or CX bike. Wider tire clearance, internal hose routing, flat-mount compatibility, and sleek fender mounts to keep you rolling when the weather and terrain become unpredictable.

In evaluating the needs of gravel riders, we found that the perfect fork combination didn’t exist in our stable, or in our opinion, anywhere at all. Working with long-standing builder relationships, we determined all of the technical features needed for modern gravel riding, and applied them using our vast experience in producing trusted bicycle forks. Blending all of these elements together, we bring you the best features, ride quality, and trusted durability for the toughest of gravel and cyclocross riding demands.
