Deity Launches Oversized Handlebar Line | BIKE Magazine

Deity debuts a comprehensive series of 35-millimeter oversized carbon and aluminum handlebars today that have been a labor of love for the company and are the perfect match to its established and renowned 31.8-millimeter models.

Creating a line of 35-millimeter models that have that ‘Deity feel’ and feature a range of flex and deflection matching their 31.8-millimeter counterparts was not an easy task. In fact, it took years.

Notoriously known for being overly stiff and unforgiving, the 35-mil ‘standard’ has taken over the handlebar industry over the past years and many may wonder why we were so late to the party in offering a deep range of oversized options.

We believe in making every product we offer count and to do it right can take time, many revisions that never see the light of day, and testing protocols that we believe are the benchmark.

To us, it is all about the feel of a handlebar. Having stiffness in the correct points to aid in front-wheel tracking, but allowing the bar to have enough flex and range of deflection to keep you on the bike for the entire day. Our goal with the new carbon and aluminum bars was to achieve that proper balance of realistic weight, compliance, strength, fit and finish, and a feel indicative to the Deity brand.
