The evolution of an icon.
Seeing that long-travel bikes are moving towards the slacker and longer end of the design spectrum, Renthal went back to the drawing board to redesign their legendary FatBar to better serve all-mountain, enduro, and gravity disciplines. The result is Renthal's re-engineered FatBar V2, which builds on the iconic performance and success of the first version with an 800-millimeter width and reduced weight through careful application of light, yet strong 7050 T6 aluminum alloy.
Not only is it 20 millimeters wider than the previous FatBar for better control when you're riding on technical trails and downhill courses, but it weighs approximately 45 grams less, which is a pretty significant weight savings, considering it's still made of alloy and doesn't cost any more than the original bar. If it's a bit too wide for your tastes, you can always cut down the bar ends with width markers helping you get the job done. Additionally, Renthal now offers the FatBar V2 in a stealthy black colorway for riders who aren't a fan of their signature anodized gold.

- Q & A
Renthal has done it again
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I've had the V1 fatbar on my DH bike for years, and finally bent them. That's the nice thing about an aluminum bar in the world of carbon fiber everything, they bend before they break.
This new bar is even lighter, and comes in an 800 width. It also has cutting lines to help you trim to exact length you're looking for. Renthal has found a remarkable balance of strength, weight, and ride quality with these bars. Beyond strength a high-end bar should deliver a great ride quality on the trail, and these do a great job of dampening trail chatter.
