FIRST LOOK: RACE FACE’S ALL NEW ERA AND TURBINE HANDLEBARS ARE DESIGNED TO COUNTER ARM PUMP

(RACE FACE PRESS RELEASE)

Era and Turbine handlebars are the most advanced handlebars ever produced by Race Face. After five years in development, they’ve seen more than 4,000 hours of field testing and we can confidently say we have an answer to arm pump and hand fatigue. Era and Turbine bars allow you to ride harder, faster and longer, bringing consistent compliance to every width and rise, for every rider. The Era and Turbine handlebars are backed up by our Lifetime Warranty inclusive of crashes.

 

Era Handlebars

Shape the future

The Era handlebar was designed from the ground up, narrowing the stem clamp area to allow both a quicker taper and an earlier rise to achieve our meticulously researched Goldilocks (GL) tune. GL tune is the sweet spot for compliance preferred by most riders; stiffer was too harsh, softer was too flexible.

 

 

Less trimming. More comfort

Trimming bars makes them stiffer and ultimately, less comfortable. Instead of making only 800mm lengths and expecting riders to cut them down, we made six carbon bars in your size and rise, all hitting our GL tune for reduced fatigue.

 

Strength in numbers

We took nearly 100 individual pieces of hand-laid carbon fiber and bound them using a toughened epoxy resin, with a specific layup for each bar variant. The result is the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any handlebar we tested.

Give arm pump the axe

Era is Race Face’s carbon answer to arm pump and hand fatigue. Ride harder, ride faster and enjoy a consistently compliant feel in every width and every rise. To personalize your Era carbon bars even further, we made them in six eye-catching colors. And of course, Era is covered by our Lifetime Warranty, crashes included.

Bar Rise:10mm, 20mm, 40mm
Bar Width:760mm, 780mm, 800mm

Era Handlebar Pricing MSRP: $169.99 USD / $215.00 CAD / 149 € incl. Tax

 

Turbine Handlebars

All in the shape

The new Turbine was fully redesigned, narrowing the stem clamp area to allow both a quicker taper and an earlier rise to hit our meticulously researched Goldilocks (GL) tune. GL tune is the sweet spot for compliance preferred by most riders; stiffer was too harsh, softer was too flexible.

Less trimming. More comfort

Trimming bars makes them stiffer and ultimately, less comfortable. Instead of making only 800mm lengths and expecting riders to cut them down, we made six alloy bars for your size and rise, all hitting our GL tune for reduced fatigue.

Optimus alloy

We used extremely precise aluminum engineering to optimize the flex profile of every Turbine bar variant. That meant changing the position, degree and rate of wall thickness variation, what we call internal butting. The result is a compliant bar with very high strength.

Arm pump stands no chance

Turbine is Race Face’s alloy answer to arm pump and hand fatigue. You can trust in Turbine to ride from dawn ‘til dusk and enjoy a consistently compliant feel in every width and every rise. Available in seven colors to customize your cockpit. And of course, Turbine is covered by our Lifetime Warranty, crashes included.

Bar Diameter: 35mm

Bar Rise: 10mm, 20mm, 40mm
