All the Good Flex, None Of the Bad - Light as a feather and handles like a dream. Next SL is the world's lightest 35 bar. Cross country riding is changing - the bikes are more capable than ever, the trail choices and courses are getting rougher and rowdier, and riders are continuing to progress and push the boundaries. XC/trail bikes typically lean towards higher efficiency, which can lead to a trade-off in suspension and rider comfort. Hand and arm fatigue have increasingly become a factor that impacts many of these riders, ranging from annoyance to limiting performance that might cut your day short. Race Face has developed the new Next SL carbon bar to focus on reducing rider fatigue without compromising handling. The design allows good vertical flex for extra comfort while additional carbon added to the front and back of the bar eliminates bad horizontal flex for improved steering precision. At 167g, it's the lightest in its category, thanks in part to a 35mm bar diameter, which helps reduce weight while maintaining strength. Features Optimised vertical compliance improves rider comfort and reduces hand fatigue. Asymmetric carbon layup with reinforced fore-aft material for steering precision and vertical compliance. 35mm clamp reduces weight and increases strength. 740mm wide with 10mm rise based on rider feedback. Lightest in category(167g). Specification Colour: Black Built for: XC/Trail. Length: 740mm. Rise: 10mm Bar Diameter: 35mm. Weight: 167g.
