Road riding has evolved over the last decade. Thanks to disc brakes, wide rims, and high-volume tires, road riders are able to venture from the main road to the backroad in complete confidence.

While brake and wheel technology has driven frame and tire manufacturers to rethink road frame design, we took a close look at the handlebar, your primary contact point on the bike, to reimagine the ultimate handlebar for any road, and any event. Any product that bears the SES nomenclature must deliver a real-world aerodynamic advantage. In the case of the SES AR Handlebar, the cross-section of the bar top has been developed in CFD and proven in the wind tunnel to reduce drag. Hidden cable/wire routing enhance drag reduction while delivering a clean aesthetic.

AR means the handlebar will deliver comfort and confidence over any road surface. Borrowing design cues from our successful SES Aero Road bar, Compact Road bar, and G Series bar, the SES AR Handlebar features compound flared drops that provide a wider stance for technical riding and descending while maintaining easy access to the controls. We fully expect that this bar we’ve dreamt of for years will quickly gain popularity and establish itself as the benchmark for road handlebars.

From installation to ride quality, the SES AR ROAD HANDLEBAR tops the list. The install was easy and clean with the cable routing options well-designed and perfectly placed. All of the grip points fit perfectly in the hand and are super comfortable. Best drop bar ever!


Wow, what a great handlebar! I've had trouble sprinting on the drops on my old handelbar because it was too narrow (36mm top, 38mm drops), but at the same time I got used to riding narrow on the hoods. So I was looking for something narrow with a flare and in the end I chose this SES AR road handlebar (38mm top, 43mm drops) which is just perfect for me. On the drops it has two distinct segments, because it doesn't angle at a steady round curve like other handlebars. Upper one has flat angle and is not too flared for aero riding on the drops and lower one is flared for sprinting on the drops. Top is flat, which I prefer, but not stupid aero flat so that you can't grab it, it's very comfy, should be good for long rides. And also it has shorter reach than many other handlebars, which is always a plus if you wanna go for longer stem.
The quality is superb, with great attention to detail - everything is neatly marked, area for hoods' clamps is in the very right place (unlike some other hi-end bars), clever bar end plugs, indents for the bar tape at the top, Di2 and total internal cable routing futureproof.
Needless to say I was able to sprint on the drops no problems with it straight away and it was still not too wide on the tops, very comfy handlebar.
The only negative is its steep price, but it's ENVE, whatcha gonna do :)
