Hot color selection seems to be in this week. Following the Santa Cruz Bikes news about a whole new customer selectable color palette, Truvativ has just announced some very eye catching colors for the their NOIR T40 bars. And the trend for wider handlebars just continues! Although we featured the 1000mm wide Syncros bars in the top pic of the Mtbr Lights Shootout, these new 720mm bars from Truvativ are much more realistic. If you have wide enough shoulders and don’t ride tight, woodsy singletrack, you might want to check the Truvativ NOIR T40.
But how wide is too wide? Are wide handelbars more fashion than function? Let us know what you think in the comments below and tell us what size bars you run and what kind of riding you do with ‘em.
Official press info from Truvativ follows:
More bar means more control, more power, more comfort. So we’ve added an even wider bar option to the NOIR carbon bar family. The NOIR T40 carbon riser bar. Powerful 720mm width bar. Available in three colors: red, blue and silver. Whether you’re grinding up a climb or fighting through the woods, NOIR T40 is wider and bolder than ever before.
