Carnegie Bars

Here's something that's been around for a bit, just not too common around these parts (but we're going to change that, aren't we?)

Shown above is the FLAT (zero rise) version - here's the quick and dirty:

  • Oversize bar clamp
  • 25˚ backsweep
  • 685mm tip-to-tip, which as the bars are angled makes them feel like a true trail-worthy 700mm bar. That's 27.5in.
  • 7075 triple butted tubing - the very best out there
  • Heat treated
  • Shot peened
  • Black anodised
  • Tested to exceed the new stringent CEN standard.
  • Weight is under 300g
Here's a comparison shot, just in case you were wondering...
