Fatback Bikes Sweet 16° carbon bar

Sweet 16° carbon bar

Let’s face it, long days in the saddle are tough on the body.  Your hands and wrists take a beating, no matter the terrain. Ergonomics are key to keeping you feeling good. The Fatback Sweet 16 carbon bar with 16 degrees of back sweep will decrease the pressure on your palms, keeping your hands happier much longer.

With winter ultras and bikepacking's increasing popularity, it's common to have numb fingers and ongoing soreness in your wrists. We have seen some crazy alterations to handlebars in attempt to solve the hand issues. Instead of slapping a Band-Aid on your bars, swap to the Sweet 16 bars to accomplish the same goal of a more comfortable ride.

Issues ranging from tingly fingers (pins and needles) to numbness, particularly in the ring and pinky fingers are common. These new ergo bars with the ideal 16° sweep will minimize pressure and associated numbness from your Ulnar nerve, keeping you more comfortable and warmer on the bike. There are other bars on the market with much more sweep, but we found these to be detrimental to handling, feeling more like a Danish grandmother commuter bar than a performance handlebar.

  • Sweep: 16°
  • Width: 780 (with graduated cut lines)
  • Rise: 30mm
  • Upsweep: 4°
  • Weight: 225g
  • Clamp diameter: 31.8 
  • Material: Carbon
  • Color options: Carbon with Black or Red decals. 
  • Intended use: Mountain biking, bike packing, fat biking, Trail riding, adventure commuting. 

Don't forget to check out our Fatback stems too, they are now available with integrated Garmin, GoPro or light mounts.
