This is the very first production weight bar out of the new carbon Carnegie bar mold – we’re working with an innovative layup procedure using different cloth type to most other bar manufacturers, to give a proper mountain-durable bar, rather than something that’s just good for testing in the lab. We’re interested in how it performs in lab tests, but we want it to be durable so we can replicate those tests after a year of riding and still get a pass.
Production is still some way off, surface finish detailing is next on our agenda. Ugly? Well – they always were anyhow.
