    As far I as know Enve is in the progress of changing factory's or their warehouse so production has either slowed down a substantial amount or completely halted. I tired to E.P. one a little while ago and was told to be expecting to wait till mid June or July to get my hands on one.

    Yup, ENVE told me mid July. Go-Ride didnt even want to tell me when they will be getting them back in stock because they don't even know. So I guess I will wait impatiently till mid July.

    I believe they are out of stock due to Chinese New Years holiday where the factories take off a good month and it takes another month to get production up to speed. Typically these factories lose 30-60% of their workforce. In my business I import products and I'm just getting caught up on back orders. I'm guessing that their containers or shipments should be arriving really soon.

    I have mine and got them at goride. They are on my Canfield Lucky and they are solid ass bars. I first saw them last year Chris Canfield had them on their Canfield One at the Tara Llanes race in Northstar. I would buy them again for my other FR rig! If I had the cash

    ENVE products are made in Utah, in the USA. ....by $5 per hour illegal aliens... just kidding, or am I?

    The Chinese holidays shouldn't affect production at ENVE.

    How does the carbon feel vs the typical DH bar? I hear carbon helps with vibration but is there anything else carbon benefits over your typical bar ? Besides weight as well .. I'm trying to decide myself if I should buy these too or pick up something else .

    The Enve DH bars flex quite a bit. The flex is designed in to reduce fatigue. They provide a more muted ride, a bit less communicative compared to alloy bars. At first I didn't know what I thought about it. I was a bit turned off by the fact I could flex my bars so easily. Unlike alloy bars, rigidity and flex can be dialed in to provide desired traits. The flex in these bars work for you, not against you, but I can see how some riders might prefer a stiffer bar that communicates better.

    Do some research! Why don't you call them yourself! Rims are made in UT but bars are mfg overseas like everyone else's! I'm not sure what else they have mfg overseas but I know the bars are! I love my Enve bars and personally don't care that they are mfg over seas!

    I really like my Enve DH bars.
    From what I understand Enve is moving all manufacturing to UT.
    The seatpost that has been on order since Jan won't be delivered till mid Jun.

    Carbon also has no memory. When metals fatigue the snap in half. Carbon when laid up properly is strong as hell. I have seen the proof for years SR-71 Blackbird plane is made from Carbon and it is still the Baddest Plane made. Made in my home town Burbank,Cal. Lockheed Skunkworks back in the 1960s.

    I did some Reasearch yesterday. I took a tour of the factory. Everthing is made in house.
    Bars, wheels ,tubing and even the fixtures they use in the MFG process.
    Jason showed me the whole facility. From cutting the carbon to the finishing room.

    He said they did not think they would sell out of the DH bar as fast as they did. It out sold the road bar 2 to 1. And they sell a lot of road bars.

    That being said they have another mold for the DH bar and are trying to get them back into production. But they have a huge back order on the DH bar.
    Hope this helps.

    Great company. I actually emailed them about a summer internship, and instead of just a "sorry, no positions available" I got an awesome response from Annie about how she grew up near San Jose and misses riding here, they currently don't have any sort of internship program, but would keep my info on file, and to check back next year for a possible job after graduation.

    Made me want to buy the DH bar right then just to support them.

    Wow, I thought everyone knew the SR-71 was made almost entirely of titanium. Even the F-35 uses Ti in its highest stress areas.

    Carbon is strong as hell, and I love my Enve bars. Wish I could afford the rims.

    Yup and besides, first carbon fibres were made in the sixties, were something around 30% carbon and were highly flexible, it wasn't until the eighties or nineties it could be used to something as simple as sport equipment, even then it was very rare, it's not until the last ten-twenty years we've could use it to bigger parts with out fearing it'll break instantly. As new factories have arisen the cost has been able to slowly get down too (message may contain errors, took it all out of my memory)
    /on topic, saw one of these bars at my LB, really nice finish, couldn't believe the weight of that thing when I took it off that shelf, price is too steep though for me and think I'd prefer an alu bar anyway

    I stand correctedAlways thought it was all Carbon NOT Ti ..
