This VentureMax XL features short reach, shallow drop and purposeful flare offering comfort and confidence for dirt drop adventures. These bars feature a full 52cm width giving you plenty of room for handlebar bags and mounting accessories, making this a great bar for drop bar bikepacking and touring. Featuring ergonomic tops for a more comfortable hand position and the wider grip ensuring more off-road control and stability when fully-loaded. The VentureMax XL also features a 4.6° back sweep, aero-shaped 38x22.5mm top section, and drilling for a Shimano EW-RS910 junction box. In addition to offering multiple hand postions, these bars are ergonomically designed with a "Bio-bend" in the drop for comfort and practicality on an array of surfaces. *Width is measured at the initial bend rather than at the hood.
***The difference between the WCS and Comp is specifically material, texture and weight. The Comp is double-butted 6061 alloy and weighs 350g. The WCS is smoother, resembling a carbon bar, made of triple-butted 7050 alloy and weighs 325g.
