Why We Build It
When we were originally approached by another brand to help them build a carbon handlebar, we thought to ourselves "of course we can do it, we build rims that smash into the ground from all types of heights and speeds, how hard can handlebars be?!".
Well, as it turns out, of course we can do it, but it was anything but easy.
The HLN 835C began with a set of goals: 1. Strength for all types of riding. 2. Precise handling in the most challenging conditions. 3. Comfort for all-day epics.
We also began with a number of beliefs about how to achieve those goals. However, we quickly realized we had a lot of work to do to create the bars we envisioned.
After a nearly 2 years of development and multiple combinations of clamp diameter, layup, rise, shape, upsweep, and back sweep (and with the creation of our 835AL alloy bar as a happy side-effect) we finally felt that the new bar met our oringal design goals. We were so stoked on the result that we decided to keep it for ourselves, and so launched the HLN 835C (and 835AL)!
Whether it's the 35mm clamp diameter, which allows us greater ability to change wall thickness, or the gradual bend (both of which greatly improve ride quality); or if it is the 9º backsweep and 4º upsweep, which provide comfortable ergonomics while still offering flexibility in terms of bar-roll/cockpit set-up...Every detail of our HLN 835C handlebar has been thoroughly considered.
All so you don't have to think about anything other than shredding your favorite trails with confidence, comfort, and precision.
All RideFast handlebars are protected by our 2 year warranty as well as our Crash Replacement Plan which provides no-questions-asked, replacement at a 50% discount (from current published retail pricing) for damage not covered by our warranty.
