ENVE just rolled out the all-new SES AR Handlebar. This all-road carbon handlebar combines the features of their road bar and the G-Series gravel bar into one nice little package. For those of you that thought the G-Series was a tad extreme on the flare, this could be the solution for you. The 44cm bar measures 7cm narrower on the drops while the center-to-center at the hoods remain the same.
The ENVE line of products designated as “SES” or Smart ENVE System are aerodynamically optimized in the wind tunnel and claimed to be “real-world fast.” The “AR” designation means “all-road” and the is defined for multiple applications including: road race, all-road, gravel and cyclocross.

Purpose-built for the modern road rider, the SES AR handlebar features compound flared drops for confident handling, aerodynamic shaping with internal/external routing options for clean airflow and aesthetics, and a carbon laminate that has been tuned for responsive handling without sacrificing comfort.
The SES AR Handlebar, the cross-section of the bar top has been developed in CFD and proven in the wind tunnel to reduce drag. Hidden cable/wire routing enhance drag reduction while delivering a clean aesthetic. AR means the handlebar will deliver comfort and confidence over any road surface. Borrowing design cues from our successful SES Aero Road bar, Compact Road bar, and G Series bar, the SES AR Handlebar features compound flared drops that provide a wider stance for technical riding and descending while maintaining easy access to the controls. We fully expect that this bar we’ve dreamt of for years will quickly gain popularity and establish itself as the benchmark for road handlebars.
