Leave it to OneUp to re-think carbon bars and take advantage of the differences between carbon and alloy. Instead of following the same shape as a tapered aluminium bar in the same way as every other carbon handlebar available today, OneUp layered the carbon and shaped their bar to allow more vertical compliance. The result is a bar that dampens trail vibration, while still having a positive response to rider input.
OneUp bench marked their bar against the most popular carbon bars on the market, as well as foam filled aluminium bars. The results were, on average, a 21% increase in vertical compliance (comfort) coupled with a 28% increase in steering stiffness (responsiveness). These are more than just marginal gains.
The patented oval shape of the bars let you ride harder, for longer, without arm pump.

Replaced some aluminium bars on a new YT Capra. Wanted something a bit more sleek, whilst taking advantage of the dampening effect carbon has. Being slightly lighter is always a bonus too. Feel great in the hands and look the part. Couldn't ask for much more.
The marketing is right for once
These are great for taking trail buzz out .elbow used to hurt with Ali and other carbon bars these helped massively
Very efficient, great bars
