Lightweight Rennbügel handlebar released

168g carbon road bar in three widths

German company Lightweight, known for their high quality wheelsets, are continuing to expand their component range with the new Rennbügel road handlebar.


With a claimed weight of 168g for a 42cm model, it lives up to the brand’s name. And if the quality of the carbon is up to Lightweight’s usual standards, it should be a very stiff bar. The Rennbügel will be tested but not manufactured in Germany; Lightweight have chosen a Taiwanese company to make the bar.

The Rennbügel features a 136mm drop and 79mm reach and is available in 40, 42 and 44cm centre-to-centre widths. It’s priced at £320/€349 (German price – it will be more in other European countries due to tax) and should be available in mid-August.

The rennbügel features a 31.8mm stem clamp:
