Hope Carbon MTB Handlebars
Hope Carbon MTB Handlebars - UK made carbon handlebars!
For many years it's been a dream of Hope to produce handlebars. Hope initially looked at producing aluminium bars and went through a long design and testing process, but realised the only way to produce them in aluminium would be to use Far East manufacturing. Not really the Hope way!
Hope then began looking at carbon fibre production and quickly realised that this method could enable handlebar manufacture to remain in Barnoldswick. With the development of the HB.211 frame giving vital carbon production experience a new facility was built at our Barnoldswick site.

Mr Burns What can I say about these? Replaced my sixc 780mm and I don`t know how much, they`re night and day. The sixc were too straight for me and caused shoulder pain after every ride. These are a blessing. Stiff but take out enough chatter to matter and comfortable to boot. Plus they`re made just down the road. What more could you want? Yes they`re pricey but they`re worth every penny.
Mr JONES Lovely looking pair of handlebars, light and stuff with minimal rise. Fast delivery and great set.
