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.

Weight: 324g
Material: 7075 Alloy
Length: 800mm

If ever a brand was to inspire confidence, then DMR would be the one. Born out of thrashing bikes in the woods, the components that come from DMR are certainly ones that can take some abuse. The Wingbar and Defy Stem combine to make a thoroughly modern cockpit which maintains their classic core values. The Wingbar is now available in…

DMR Bikes Sled

The Sled was always going to be an exciting bike. Ever since I got wind of the new machine last year, it was clear that DMR were not going to be messing about. There are obviously a couple of aspects about this bike that makes it stand proud from the rest of the DMR fleet. Firstly it is their first…
