Race Face Intros New Bars, Posts, Stems, Grips, Saddles & Colors!
Race Face has reworked the Next carbon fiber handlebars (top shelf) with flat and riser options. The flat bar is super wide at 720mm, which should be popular amongst 29ers. The riser is 725mm and is strong enough for trail and enduro use. They come in bright colors and graphics and both weigh in at just 175g.
DH worthy Next carbon bars (bottom) also get a bit more color options, with red and more in addition to the colors shown here.
Plenty more Canadian goodies below…
Turbine cranks get a new limitied edition green ano, which joins the red, gray and black. it’s spec’d on the Trek Stache 29er, too.
The Atlas cranks and handlebar gets the same green hue. Bar is available in a flat bar, 0.5 and 1.25 risers.
