There’s no lack of funky handlebars these days, all of which claim to offer additional hand positions, the perfect angles, and more options for mounting gear. Brands such as Redshift, Farr, and Jones are among the most recognizable, but it looks like Wren Sports is also joining the funky adventure bar game, and is doing so in a big way.
The new Wren Perseverance Adventure Bar is their take on the perfect handlebar for multi-day riding. “Your cockpit is your home when you’re out on big rides,” says Wren. “This is a cockpit designed to live in, day-in, and day-out. While there are a lot of funky bars out there, we’ve found them all to be lacking in one way or another: too much backsweep with loops that are too small and limited in functionality.”
The Perseverance Bar has a massive aero loop out front, offering more room for your hands and gear, while also providing better control while in a tucked, aero position. They have a 25mm rise and 16° backsweep, which is at the conservative end of the spectrum, but still what we consider to be a comfort MTB bar that would make sense for multi-day trips and trail riding.
