Similar to our gravel wheels -we saw a need in the off-pavement world for a barthat didn’t exist. Taking all of the lessons we’ve learned through road cycling, mountainbiking, and our own gravel riding, we’ve formulated an entirely new bar shape and used ourexperience in carbon tuning for the best possible ride quality. Equipped for compatibilitywith modern brake and shifting components, our gravel bar pushes the leading edge ofgravel and bike capabilities.
The Gravel Bar has a 12° flare and a very wide top. Riders looking for a rangy bar to stretch out over on those long days in the saddle need look no further than the Gravel Bar for their handle bar choice. Obviously, the Gravel Bar is also a light weight choice which should appeal to those who race and/or are just looking for the lightest high performance bars they can get. Enve also tuned the carbon layup to render a smoother ride across the chunky gravel roads you might be riding. With pretty average reach and drop measurements, the Gravel Bar should be easy to fit to current gravel road bikes without upsetting riding position and handling. The bars are routed for electronic shifting and also feature a constantly varying radius drop with two “full hand” positions which should also help with comfort over the long haul.
Following are specs from Enve on the Gravel Bar:

The Gravel Bar retails for $350.00
Enve Gravel Fork: To be technically correct, this is not Enve’s first gravel oriented fork. Some may remember the fork they produced with the built in fender. This fork is a total redesign, and is different in several key ways to that fork. Instead of the integrated fender, this fork features fender mounts. The fork has better tire clearances, (up to 50mm), and features a sleek looking flat mount for the brake caliper. Internal hose routing for the brake keeps the outside clean and less likely to pick up mud and mire.
Enve has the following to say about the Gravel Fork:
In evaluating the needs of gravel riders, we found that the perfect forkcombination didn’t exist in our stable, or in our opinion, anywhere at all. Working with long-standing builder relationships, we determined all of the technical featuresneeded for modern gravel riding, and applied them using our vast experiencein producing trusted bicycle forks. Blending all of these elements together,we bring you the best features, ride quality, and trusted durability for thetoughest of gravel and cyclocross riding demands.
