Found: New Featherweight Tune Carbon Mountain Bike Handlebars
German lightweight component manufacturer Tune has just added two new carbon fiber mountain bike handlebars to their lineup.
Both are 750mm wide with 31.8mm clamp sections. The riser has a 15mm rise, 5º backsweep and 3º upsweep. Claimed weight is 125g. The flat bar has a 6.5º backsweep and comes in a claimed 115g. Both pass EN and EFBE testing and come with a 110kg (242lb) rider weight limit. While it seems obvious, the guys at Fair Wheel Bikes (US importers for Tune) included this warning: Not for DH riding. And in true Euro fashion, both can be cut down to a skinny 650mm width.
