How many times have you watched your mountain bike icons race down an insane track with ferocious velocity and thought, “I want what they’ve got.” ? With Enve’s MinnaarBar, you can have the custom specs of Greg Minnaar right at your fingertips. Literally.
Enve Composites has been a sponsorship and development partner of the Santa Cruz Syndicate Team since 2009, and they work very closely with the racers to develop their gravity bars and components. The MinnaarBar was designed and manufactured at Enve’s R&D lab in Ogden, Utah at Minnaar’s request. He was aiming for a relaxed feel with a comfortable wrist position, while still upholding an aggressive riding stance.
Being a downhill-specific carbon bar, the specs on the MinnarBar will suit those who are fan of the M9 handlebar, but who also want an extra kick of World Cup magic in their cockpit. Coming in at 808mm wide with a 31.8mm clamp diameter, the MinnaarBar also boasts a 28mm rise. Greg wanted a higher rise to eliminate the need for using as many spacers below the stem. The 7.5° sweep and 4.5° tip angles are slightly out of the norm, but will suit some rider preferences.
After salivating over those specs, the true performance advantage of this bar lies in Enve’s custom laminate, damping vibrations and reducing hand pump and fatigue. Even if you aren’t a three-time UCI downhill world champion, you can still channel the GOAT (greatest of all time) on your favorite lift-access trails.
As with all Enve bars, the MinnaarBar comes with a five-year warranty, so you can shred the gnar like Minnaar for years to come.
