Lightweight Introduces Rennbugel, a 168g Carbon Fiber Road Bike Handlebar

Lightweight Rennbugel carbon fiber handlebar

The new Lightweight Rennbügel handlebar joins the recent carbon water bottle cage and accompanying bidon in their expanding, non-wheel lineup.

The Rennbügel has a nicely shaped drop but maintains the classic round tube profile, mixing old style with newer ergonomics. They say it’s stiff enough to point you where you want to go but built to damp vibrations. Hi-mod UD carbon fiber construction puts the claimed weight at just 168g for the 42cm width.

More pics and sizing/options below…

No price? No word on weight limit. And does it work with disc brakes.

Why wouldn’t it work with disc brakes?

Does it have wifi

@Mellon:

It’s $9000 dollars and if you want to run disc brakes you need the “Derbickünriidenschtoppenmiitdiscenbrakend” option for another $350.

Too bad it’s an ugly, terrible ergo bend. Give me a traditional round bend any day.

NRKO - 06/13/13 - 2:58pm

Finally! A bar stiff enough to point you where you want to go!

Wojtek G - 06/13/13 - 3:20pm

OMG, what an un-aero front side!

Champs - 06/13/13 - 3:27pm

I won’t be buying these, but why should THM have the gram weenie component niche to itself?

And face it, any of you with the scratch for a 10 pound build would want it for that vacation in the Alps. Easier climbs just mean you can do more.

the link goes to the wrong “lightweight” site.
the bike one is lightweight.info, not lightweight.de

@Aaron

Funny, I was just thinking it’s a terrible, unergonomic round bend. Give me a bar that’s actually shaped like my hands any day.

Brendan - 06/13/13 - 4:22pm

Can I mount my aero bars to it in vertical comfort position?

Rivet - 06/13/13 - 4:34pm

But is it disc brake compatible.

KJR - 06/13/13 - 7:18pm

Is it a one to one ratio for weight limit? 168g bar for a 168lb rider?

Will Cancellara be riding one in Paris Roubaix next year?

CXisfun - 06/13/13 - 9:43pm

So, do the bars come with the Porsche that’s on the page you guys linked to? Good God, do you do any proofreading or editing before posting?

ChadQuest - 06/14/13 - 3:53am

I’ll keep riding my 192g 3T Ergonova bars that are actually comfortable for 300+ miles.

Kristi Benedict - 06/14/13 - 8:16am

Link is fixed.

Andrew B. - 06/14/13 - 9:19am

$390. seems worth it.

Lawyerknowitall - 06/15/13 - 6:51pm

Will it upload my ride stats to Facebook, and tweet my heart rate?

Gabriel - 06/17/13 - 8:25am

Can I mount my iPad to it so I can see how slow I am going? I’d also like to be able to do researchs on the iPad about other ridiculously lightweight components. After all, i am 220 pounds, and i need expensive lightweight components. Is the iPad mount possible?
