Newmen Announces 2020 Handlebar Collection

PRESS RELEASE: Newmen

2020 MTB Handlebar line-up


We at Newmen Components proudly introduce you to our new handlebar lineup, covering all aspects of mountain biking from cross country racing up to full-on bike park shredding with up to 800mm length. Featuring an innovative geometry which we believe improves wrist position and provides reduced fatigue, our newly engineered handlebars have an increased upsweep compared to average existing handlebars. This gives an improved wrist- and hand position without resorting to excessive backsweep. Compared to handlebars with increased backsweep (12° or more), this allows riding in an attack position, while placing your wrists at an optimal angle and still maintaining the increased comfort during more neutral positioning on the bike.

We only offer handlebars with 31.8mm diameter as we believe that increasing the diameter to 35mm makes for a less comfortable handlebar with either worse impact resistance or increased weight compared to 31.8mm.


Our new NEWMEN handlebar series is available at three different price points. There is a more budget-friendly aluminum option as well as a high-end carbon option. All handlebars have identical geometry and feel on the trail and they come without any weight or usage restrictions.

The following variants are available for most of our products:

- EVOLUTION SL: high-end aluminium parts at a reasonable price point

- ADVANCED: budget-friendly carbon fibre parts with quality and safety in mind

- ADVANCED SL: top-of-the-line carbon fibre parts for sophisticated dream-builds

 I wasn't sure there were enough Asian made black handlebars on the market yet

 These are advanced and evolved, so they're better

 In contrast to boring of the shelf stuff like RaceFace or eThirteen, these are actually interesting. They have some unique geometry options and hit the sweetspot for price/weight/strength ratio.

 @Ttimer: “price/weight/strength ratio”? Tell me more.
  • 3 4
 @Ttimer: Lol. These have more upsweep, that's the only difference. Price, weight, and strength appear to be the same as the "off the shelf" stuff you mention....

 They definitely need to do a collaboration with Paul components that would be a real Hustle and would show them the Color of Money

 31.8 FTW!

 Pretty good range of available bars, but all of them with the same sweep up/back? Seems like a variety of bends would be more enticing to customers.

 Exact;y what i was thinking, how bout some variety.
  • 3 1
 Handlebar geometry is "progressing" in the wrong direction. They need to go down and forward sweep.

 Newman seems to have joined a few other select brands in experimenting with and offering different shapes for different riders. I've been riding SQ Lab 30x 12º (4º upsweep) bars for a few months now, and they seem to have helped with some wrist pain I was getting (despite never having it before on multiple bikes with normal 760-800mm bars.)

One thing I appreciate is that these bars have a competitive price point, especially in alloy. I'm particularly interested in the 90507 and 90513 40mm rise 800mm alloy options.

 New standard. 666 bars. Rise, width, clamp diameter-whatever. They'll be the most evil bars available.
  • 1 0
 the alignment markings will be 6mm off center just to mess with the rider.

 Finally! I never understood nor liked flat bars at all. 6 and 9 is my fave but I would try more upsweep - as I tilt my bars pretty far forward anyway to get what feels like a good angle...

 Newmen makes their wheels in-house (rim and hubs) so these bars might also be made in Germany.
  • 1 0
 Not rims, only hubs and assembly.

 We care about comfort so don’t offer 35mm but don’t worry we won’t offer any other options of upsweep or backsweep because luckily we are all identical when it comes to these.

 8° upsweep is a bummer..... Chromag nailed it years ago with 8° backsweep and 5° upsweep
  • 4 2
 We need a new handlebar standard! 33.4?
  • 26 0
 I propose a ratchet-style stem/bar clamp, with 180 points of contact. It’d keep your bar from rotating, and we could fine tune it in 2 degree increments. We’d all have to replace our bars because the new clamps would destroy a smooth bar. It also fixes a problem nobody has. Call it; Stem-Handlebar-Incremental-Technology. Or, SHIT.

 Fuckin priced as much as Paul Newman daytonas

 Well shit, I thought I was sophisticated, but turns out I'm just reasonable. Guess I can only ride an alloy bar.
  • 2 1
 But does it come with a big heavy adapter so I can run it with my collection of 35.0 stems?

 Bravo Newmen ...only 31,8 that don't follow the mass! I wait his wheels superboost !!

 i wish i could demo some high rise bars. I don't like $75 experiments.

Like it.

 I like the PRO 9 degree backsweep. It's one better.

 More is always better. Unless its HTA, then less is always better.

 upsweep is rise right?

 Upsweep is the angle of the grips relative the stem's flat plane as viewed from the front. A 45º upsweep would have your hands at a very odd angle.

Rise takes upsweep, backsweep, etc, and just moves it higher. A 45mm rise would look well... like normal riser bars
