In A Glance

The Wingbar 35 is designed to be coupled with the Defy 35 stem from DMR and together they make an awesome front end set up. Definitely not the lightest in the world, but if you want something reliable and stiff and don’t fancy your chances with carbon, as many riders don’t, then this set up should please. Made from 7075 heat-treated aluminium the Wingbar 35 is DMR’s lightest and strongest bar.

A lot of care and attention went into the geometry on this bar and the designers wanted to get the angles just right. In the end they went for a 5 degree upsweep with 8 degrees of back sweep. The result is a natural feeling set-up that has been optimised for out of the saddle aggressive riding. Available in either a 20mm rise and 35mm rise option, and either black or nickel colourway. The width is 800mm, but with markings every 2.5mm to allow you to trim it down to the perfect width for your style on the bike.

His first mountain bike was a Trek 820, which he bought in 1990. It didn’t take him long to earn himself a trip to the hospital on it, and he’s never looked back since. These days he’s keeping it rubber side down, riding locally and overseas as much as possible.
