ControlTech EXL Flat Top MTB Carbon Handlebar

The EXL range is for riders who want it all – elegant form and no-nonsense function – with zero compromise. Employing unidirectional carbon fiber, finely controlled to create strength, stiffness and vibration-damping compliance at exactly the locations and angles it’s needed, EXL sheds grams everywhere else. It’s a material that wastes nothing. EXL’s stiffness ensures every single watt of your power goes where it should – down into the ground – while tuned compliance means vibration can’t come back up. Hardwearing graphics, strong and reliable hardware and aerospace-grade alloy clamp components generate rugged off-road strength at road-race weights. Tough, unidirectional carbon design delivers extreme strength at minimal weight.


  • Aligned fibers of unidirectional carbon allow a very precise layup for huge strength
  • 9º backsweep and 4º upsweep
  • Natural wrist angle for comfort, control and security on the roughest trails
  • High strength doesn’t mean unforgiving rigidity
  • Careful design makes use of carbon fiber’s natural ability to damp out trail buzz
  • Zero rise makes this ideal for taming the tall front ends of 29er trail bikes
  • Upsweep gives the feel of a riser bar without the height penalty
