One of those snowflake components that was made perfect from the jump.
More comfort and less arm fatigue after a long day of riding.
Outdoor Gear Lab
A tester favorite with an excellent blend of comfort and control.
Definitely helps reduce arm pump and fatigue.
How does the OneUp Carbon Handlebar compare to other carbon handlebars on the market in terms of comfort and responsiveness?
We have bench marked our OneUp Carbon Handlebar against the most popular carbon bars on the market and the results were a 21% increase in vertical compliance (comfort) coupled with a 28% increase in steering stiffness (responsiveness). These are more than just marginal gains and make the OneUp Carbon Handlebar one of the most comfortable and responsive bars on the market.
Do the decals come pre-installed?
The decals do not come installed. They are shipped on two sheets with a few other decal options for you. The lasered Gloss black "ONE" logo on the bars is a guide to help you position the colors decal kit.
What are the dimensions of the OneUp Carbon Handlebar?
The OneUp Carbon Handlebar has a geometry of 800mm wide with a 35mm diameter and a sweep of 8° back and 5° up.
How much does the OneUp Carbon Handlebar weigh?
The OneUp Carbon Handlebar weighs 220g for the 20mm rise option and 225g for the 35mm rise option.
How does the OneUp Carbon Handlebar minimize arm pump and vibration?
The OneUp Carbon Handlebar minimizes arm pump and vibration with its patent pending oval shape which combines the best ride characteristics of 31.8mm and 35mm bar standards into one package. This shape maximizes steering response while minimizing arm pump and vibration.
How does the OneUp Carbon Handlebar help decrease hand pain when riding mountain bikes?
The OneUp Carbon Handlebar minimizes hand pain by providing a more comfortable and compliant ride. The bar's patent pending oval shape combines the best ride characteristics of 31.8mm and 35mm bar standards into one package, maximizing steering response while minimizing arm pump and vibration. This leads to less fatigue and hand pain during long rides.
How short can I cut these bars down?
Our bars can be cut down to a minimum of 740mm. Any further you risk clamping your controls onto the ovalized flex zone of the bar. Doing so could compromise the integrity of the bar.
What do the numbers on the bar mean? How do I set the bar roll correctly?
Our Carbon bars have degrees lasered into the stem clamp profile. These are designed to correspond with the headangle of your bike to create a neutral starting point for bar roll. Line the corresponding marking up with the front edge of the stem body and tighten the face plates. Once that neutral starting point has been set, adjust the bar roll to your personal preference.
My bars have a seam/line through them, is there something wrong with them?
The look of the outermost carbon lay-up on your bars is normal. These bars are hand laid and the lay-up is very important to the design and integrity of the bar. The final layers will always be asymmetrical and somewhat random-looking. Even and patterned carbon layup does not yield the strongest design. All of our bars will have that line as it is that last wrap of carbon weave.
The internal thickness of the bar is inconsistent at the bar-ends, is there something wrong?
The Inconsistency of the inner surface of the bar is normal. These bars are handlaid and they will have a unique inner profile on every bar.
Should I use carbon paste when installing my bar and the controls?
Carbon paste or assembly prep is not required or recommended on our handle bars.
What is the torque spec on these bars?
Max torque specs for our carbon bars is 6Nm for the stem clamp and 5Nm for the controls (brakes,shifter, grips). Grips with a single outer clamp are also not compatible with our carbon bars.
If I cut my bars down, will I lose the compliance benefits?
As you reduce the length of the bar, the compliance will also reduce slightly. But keep in mind that a OneUp bar cut down to 740mm will still have more compliance compared to another 740mm bar.
